Starting a business has always been challenging. For micro, small, and medium enterprises or MSMEs, the burden of ensuring business success falls on a few individuals and, in some cases, just one. For most entrepreneurs, taxes take time and attention better spent focusing on operations.
Leading messaging and conversational commerce app Viber continues to champion MSMEs and empower their businesses as it allies with online tax filing and payment platform Taxumo.
Launched in 2016, Taxumo, an affordable online tax compliance tool, offers solo entrepreneurs, self-employed individuals, professionals, and even corporations its real-time tax calculation and automated tax filing. It also includes multiple online payment channels so business owners can skip long lines at the bank.
With its partnership with Rakuten Viber, Taxumo now has its own verified Viber Channel where it shares tax management tips, key dates and reminders on filing, brand announcements, and other useful content related to running a business. And because tax conversations don’t always have to be a heavy matter, Taxumo is also launching its own Viber stickers.
As a treat for members of the vibrant MSME Channels FoodPH and Raket PH, Viber’s newest partner is giving away two-year plan subscriptions to the winners of Pinoy Dream Negosyo and to select merchants of the two Channels. First-time Taxumo users can also enjoy a 30% discount on their subscriptions using an exclusive code shared on their new Viber Channel.
“Taxumo has always believed in empowering business owners to focus their time and energy on their passions and businesses instead of worrying about taxes,” says Ej Arboleda, Chief Executive Officer at Taxumo. “We’re delighted to partner with Rakuten Viber, which shares our vision of helping Filipino entrepreneurs achieve business success and stability and create real inclusive growth.”
“In recent years, Rakuten Viber has closely worked with MSMEs in the Philippines. We’ve seen how inspiring and passionate Filipino entrepreneurs are in growing their businesses. We also realize that tax compliance is a topic that they want to learn more about,” explains David Tse, APAC Senior Director at Rakuten Viber. “It makes sense to partner with Taxumo because this allows us to continue supporting MSMEs as they grow their business and contribute significantly to the economy.”
With Taxumo, MSMEs can access simplified tax compliance in an easy and affordable way. Stay updated on tax-related news and enjoy exclusive perks by subscribing to its Viber Channel today.
