Parpera vs Hnry

See how Hnry is better for sole traders than Parpera’s accounting software

Note: as of 5 July 2022, Parpera are unable to onboard new customers (or serve existing customers) due to Volt Bank, Parpera's partner bank, closing their deposit-taking business.

What you get with Hnry

  • Unlimited invoices and expense claims.
  • All your taxes calculated and paid as you go.
  • Hnry becomes your accountant, filing your returns and representing you to the IRD and ACC.
  • Clients can pay by credit card at no extra cost to you.
  • Automatic transaction reconciliation.
You get all of this for just 1% + GST of your self-employed income (capped at $1,500/year).

What you get with Parpera

With Parpera’s sole trader plan, you can:
  • Send unlimited invoices.
  • Manage expenses.
  • Auto-reconcile your transactions.
You still need…
  • An accountant (averaging $2,000/year).
  • A payment system like Stripe (2.9% + $0.30 on top of your invoices).
  • Time for financial admin – categorising expenses, calculating and deducting taxes, making tax payments, and lodging income tax and GST returns (averaging 5 hours/week or $5,000/year for an assistant).
All of this combined could cost you over $8,000/year.

" It’s great with Hnry. I can ask any question I need to and know that it’s being answered by a qualified accountant. I feel like I’ve pestered them a bit because I was a total noob with tax. "
