Uome - the startup on a mission to make self-employed life simple

Self-employed? Uome is a fintech startup that aims to reduce your financial admin, help you get paid quicker and enhance your client relationships.

There’s something about being self-employed that tells some clients that an invoice is more of a suggestion than an obligation, and they don’t really need to pay in any kind of reasonable time. Or at all. Sending passive-aggressive follow-up emails with the same PDF invoice attached might work for some people, but having the invoice go through a third-party service gives it a bit more authority and weight.

London-based fintech startup Uome offers this service and more. The Uome app was designed to allow self-employed people to run their business from their phone, with as many features as possible squeezed into one app. You can send a quote to potential clients, which will automatically convert into an invoice if they accept it, and those invoices - themselves created quickly and easily in the app - are shared with the client via email and in-app chat. That chat feature makes it easy to keep the client up to date with your progress, with the option to share video and photos.

And when it comes to your own finances, the app provides clear reporting, as well as the ability to upload receipts and easily keep track of expenses, letting you simply export a report to send off to your accountant.

In December, Uome launched a new integrated Plaid open banking feature that opened up the payment options further, and allows for payment to be taken through the app with 0% fees thanks to open banking’s ability to allow instant bank transfers. The app is mostly free to use; however, some features such as that open banking option are available only to subscribers, at £9.99 per month. There are otherwise small transaction fees to take card payment via Stripe or Klarna.
