"As a freelancer, my cash flow is lumpy and I never know how much of the money in my account I’m able to spend because I’m always worried about setting aside money for my taxes and saving for emergencies. Control’s dashboard gives me better clarity and confidence about my finances."

Our story

Built by freelancers
for freelancers

We're on a mission to help level the playing field between traditional work and flexible work by offering a modern financial services experience.

We are a group of former freelancers who have experienced the highs and lows of freelancing first hand. We loved the flexibility and freedom that came with being our own boss. What we didn't love, however, was spending hundreds of hours every year tracking our income, guessing how much we owed in taxes, and never knowing exactly how much money we had to spend or save for the future.

This is why we built Control as the financial management platform for freelancers. No more sleepless nights worrying about your finances.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS CONTROL?

Control is a financial platform designed specifically for freelancers and self-employed people to help manage their lumpy income by seeing what they've earned, spent and how much they have available to spend after all deductions.

IS CONTROL A BANK ACCOUNT?

We aren't. We connect to your bank accounts to aggregate your income, expenses and balances into a single consolidated dashboard, but there is no need for you to switch your bank to use Control.

ARE YOU AVAILABLE IN ALL COUNTRIES?

We are currently only available in the USA, but expanding to other countries soon. Shoot us an email at hello@controlhq.com and let us know which country you think we should launch in next!

HOW IS CONTROL DIFFERENT FROM AN ACCOUNTING PLATFORM?

Control works well alongside an accounting platform. Control exists to help you see exactly how much money you have available to you across all of your accounts (personal and business), get better insights into your income and expenses, set budgets and goals to help manage your lump income, and calculates and pays your taxes for you.

HOW DO YOU PROTECT MY DATA?

We take security very seriously and have partnered with leading organizations such as Plaid to enable our account linking. This ensures all personal data is encrypted and protected.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE HOW MUCH TAXES I OWE?

Every time you get paid, Control will automatically calculate how much tax you owe and keep a running total of your taxes owing.

HOW CAN I PAY MY TAXES USING CONTROL?

You can quickly file your taxes from the Dashboard, or send reports to your CPA, including your Schedule C if you prefer.


HOW MUCH DOES CONTROL COST?

Control is free to try, so you have nothing to lose! After a one month free trial, you pay only $11.99/month if you love saving time and money thanks to Control.
