When we started off, one of the things we were aware of was that taxation for traders was never simple. We have explained how taxation works for traders and investors in the Varsity module on taxation. We could always do more, so we partnered with Quicko, a startup to help people file taxes easily, via our Rainmatter initiative in 2020. Now, by popular demand, Quicko has launched a mobile app, Glyde, to help you file taxes easily. Check out the post by the Quicko team below introducing the app.
If 2021 had to be summed up in one word, it would be “change”. Classrooms changed into Zoom meets, laptops became movie theatres and mobile phones transformed into trading and investing devices. So we thought, why not change the way we do taxes as well?
That is when we came up with glyde – our all-new mobile app.
