Albert, the free mobile invoicing app for self-employed contractors, is changing the way people manage their money.

Created by a team behind the award-winning Natwest, The BBC and YPlan mobile apps, Albert makes invoicing fast, fun and simple for the UK’s 4.6million freelancers and self-employed people.

With several thousand users, Albert is on a mission to become the simple, trusted friend in the pocket of every self-employed millennial.

Right now, 80% of all self-employed people in the UK avoid using accounting software. Simple and convenient to use, Albert removes the daily hassle of sorting invoices and the chore of staying on top of accounts.

It’s invoicing for the WhatsApp and Instagram generation, making working and invoicing on-the-go achievable and finally enjoyable.

From day one, Albert was built to make handling invoices fast and simple, so people can enjoy more freedom to do the things they love. And entirely made from freelancers, the Albert team live just like their users, and invoice with the app themselves.

Ivo Weevers, Co-Founder and Creative Director at Albert said:

“Being freelancers ourselves, travelling and working around the world, we knew the pain and hassle of getting our finances done for our own little one-man enterprises and these issues were echoed by many of our own freelancing friends.

“Coming from a background of designing and building super simple, powerful, mobile apps, we couldn’t believe there wasn’t an easy-to-use app to help.

“Bearing in mind that on average UK freelancers are paid 21 days late, speed matters when it comes to invoicing. Albert makes it fast, fun and simple to create and send personalised, beautiful invoices from your mobile.

“Faster invoicing typically means faster payment, with 80% of freelancers who invoice on the final day of a project getting paid on time.”
