Where It Started
It all began when EJ, one of Taxumo’s founders, saw how his entrepreneur wife (Ginger) stressed monthly about taxes, especially when it came to tax filing for her startup, Manila Workshops. He realized how the process was consuming her time and attention away from her business. But what was most painful was when her previous accountant forgot to file her quarterly taxes and accomplish her bookkeeping requirements. This meant having to pay the hefty corresponding penalties to the BIR.
To solve Ginger's problem, EJ built a simple platform that automatically computed and filed Ginger's tax dues. The solution worked—and that was when they knew they were onto something that could potentially help more small business owners and self-employed professionals.
On December 1, 2016, Taxumo was launched. From what started as a household solution, Taxumo has grown to become the #1 end-to-end online tax assistance platform, headed by a passionate team dedicated to helping every Filipino freelancer, small business owner, and licensed professional prepare and pay their taxes.
