The calmness of the millpond, creating the power and energy required to get your organisation moving.
Millpond – Your Project. Our Passion.
Hnry was founded by a group of project managers who were unexpectedly hit by an out-of-the-blue ACC bill, under the impression that their accountant would handle everything for them. The tax system wasn’t set up for independent earners, and so the Hnry founders set out to make it easier for every contractor to earn independently.
Hnry can save PMINZ members thousands of dollars in accounting fees, giving you peace of mind.
Sign up with the code *‘PMINZ’ and you’ll get $100 off your Hnry fees as soon as you’re paid through the app for the first time. They’ll even make the switch from your current accounting set-up for you, so you can get up and running with Hnry right away.
*PMINZ membership will be validated on registration.
