Background:  

Did you know that the biggest contributor to the Australian economy is small to medium businesses?  Australia’s 2 million SMEs employ over half the country’s workforce, account for a third of the GDP, and are the lifeblood of communities around the country.

We all know an Aussie business owner. It could be your partner, your mother, brother, or the person you buy your morning coffee from. People start a business to be their own boss, pursue their passion and to showcase their skills. But the reality is very different…It’s long days, sleepless nights, non-existent weekends and endless financial admin.

For every sale, there is an invoice to fill, a staff member to pay and an expense to be reconciled.  In fact, small businesses spend over 6 hours a week on financial admin. This equates to a staggering 42 days of wasted productivity every year.

About Thriday:

Thriday is a revolutionary new product that combines everything a business needs into one seamless and automated solution.   We have created a product that is the fastest way for small businesses to manage their banking, accounting and tax obligations.

Thriday acts like a CFO in your pocket, taking care of everything a business needs.  Using the data and insights from a Thriday business transaction account and debit card, Thriday offers intelligent value-adds like expense tracking, invoicing, tax forecasting, payroll and more. These tools help win back time for busy business owners, but more importantly, it allows them to plan for the future with real confidence.

These valuable features are made possible by our blank-sheet technical stack, which leverages AI & ML fed by a real-time stream of data from the core business transaction account. No legacy systems, no antiquated technology - just a fresh new approach.
