The Google Drive App is available on both mobile and desktop, allowing you to access your files in the office and on the go. You can also store up to 15GB of data for free in the cloud, which is more than enough space for all of your tax information.&nbsp; And the best of all; once your files are in the cloud, they can&rsquo;t accidentally get thrown away or lost.&nbsp; Tycoon - for Finance&nbsp; Tycoon is a finance tool that enables you to stay up to date with outstanding payments, current earnings, and summarise, filter and export your income information. The app recently introduced a feature that allows users to deduct commissions and estimated taxes from gross rates, which is helpful for anyone doing contract work who needs to know what their actual pay will be. So, whilst Tycoon might have been originally designed for professional models, there are also many hairdressers, make-up artists, gardeners and handymen using the app.&nbsp; Consider yourself organised!
