Instead of charging you an expensive set up fee, we make Collective affordable with bite-sized monthly payments. You get everything you need to start and run your business and take advantage of potential tax savings for just $199/month. Since our members saved an average of $16,845* in taxes in 2019, Collective pays for itself in just a few months. Plus, it’s 100% tax-deductible - how great is that?
The monthly price includes filing a single-member LLC and S Corp tax election, getting your EIN and opening a free business bank account. You also get your very own accounting and tax advisor, who will file your personal and business taxes and give you year-round tax advice. All Collective plans include Gusto ($45/m value) and QuickBooks Online Essentials ($40/m value).
The price doesn’t include third-party fees (such as fees and taxes charged by your city, state or the federal government), business license filing fees and other license fees, which vary by city. While bookkeeping tools setup, training, quarterly reviews and year-round support are included in the price, bookkeeping services are not included.
Collective is an online concierge financial platform designed to give self-employed people the technology and team they need so they can focus on their passion, not their paperwork.
With Collective, you get accounting, bookkeeping, administration, S Corp formation, personalized tax advice, four annual check-ins, industry leading tools like Gusto and QuickBooks Essentials.
Your team of advisors is here to help you get the most out of your S Corp. Every quarter we look at your financial information and identify where you could potentially save money on taxes. Our quarterly file reviews ensure that your bookkeeping is up to date and that your personalized tax advice is based on real, accurate numbers.
Even though we'd love to help everyone, our goal is to assist those who’d benefit the most from Collective. Full-time freelancers, like marketing consultants, designers, software developers and creatives who make over $80,000/year, find the most value in Collective. The majority of our members come from referrals, so if you know someone we should talk to, let us know.
