FlyFin Launches Out of Beta to Announce First AI-Based Engine Tailored for Gen Z and Millennial Freelancers and Self Employed Individuals
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FlyFin, a fintech provider, announced its exit from beta to launch its namesake offering officially. FlyFin is the first AI-based tax engine that combines the human expertise of real CPAs to eliminate 95% of work required for self-employed individuals. The mobile-first app is ideal for freelancers, gig workers, creator economy free agents, and self-employed individuals with a higher level of tax complexities.
FlyFin squarely addresses the pain points that self-employed and freelancers have around tax preparation, including accounting and tax filing uncertainties, time-consuming and complicated, knowing what deductions qualify, and meeting established deadlines to avoid tax penalties. According to a survey done earlier this year, 33% of Americans procrastinate doing their taxes and wait until the last minute. It also found that millennials are most likely to procrastinate on filing their taxes compared to different generations.
As part of its launch, FlyFin also introduced additional services bundled into its plans.
To get started, users download the app and link their accounts to make tracking expenses efortless. FlyFin's A.I. engine automatically scans expense accounts daily to suggest which category to classify the expense based on profession. FlyFin's A.I. and CPAs find all possible tax deductions. Users also have access to the domain expertise of tax CPAs, who review each individual's tax information and provide expert help to maximize savings. Users have the option to file their taxes with FlyFin's CPAs, who ensure 100% accurate tax review and preparation, or can export their data in an IRS-ready format.
FlyFin aims to disrupt the $23 billion individual tax preparation market in the U.S. The pandemic has permanently altered businesses adapting to remote work, accelerating their plans to hire more freelancers. With 70 million freelancers, the U.S. market is projected to grow to 86.5 million self-employed over the next five years. By 2027, freelancing will comprise approximately 51% of the total U.S. workforce. The most common type of freelance work is in skilled services, with 45% of freelancers providing programming, marketing, and other consulting work, according to an Upwork 2019 report.
FlyFin is led by a strong team of experienced, successful entrepreneurs in A.I. and search and hail from industry-leading companies, including LinkedIn, Microsoft, and Facebook. Co-founder and CEO Jaideep Singh's proven track record has created more than $3 billion in value for companies. In 2007, he co-founded Spock, the market's first people search engine and early adopter of A.I., indexing over 1 billion people, representing more than 1.5 trillion data records. He has founded or funded numerous companies in Silicon Valley and India.
