The Eastern Cape region got together for their Coffee Club not only to meet Safrea’s new Treasurer, but also to tap her brain on financial tips for freelancers.
Armed with a list of questions – from tax to practical tips and the rights of freelancers – the group discussion was lively and insightful. Everyone welcomed Keri Ulrich on board who is a “numbers” freelancer herself. “Numbers tell stories. At Caleo Accounting, we write success stories for businesses through meticulous bookkeeping and tax solutions,” Keri said.
Serving on Safrea’s national Exco as a volunteer, Keri is ideally positioned to understand freelancers’ needs and to render potential accounting and tax services to them. Get to know Keri and her business better here – Facebook and LinkedIn
