Have you thought about gifting PocketSmith? While giving budgeting software as a present might feel like the equivalent of gifting a pair of socks, the fact remains — everyone wears socks, and everyone takes on the responsibility of managing their money. We can’t provide the funky patterns that some have, but we can still give you the same fuzzy feeling of a thick pair of socks.

Who should I gift PocketSmith to?

For the global citizens who operate in multiple currencies

Whether they be a glamorous jet setter or an adventurous expat, many of your family and friends will be living a global lifestyle. But a lifestyle that spans multiple countries and currencies comes with — gulp — complex financial needs. 

As online money management software that helps global citizens manage their finances all in one place, PocketSmith could be a welcome gift. Users can track multi-currency accounts, assets, and liabilities from around the world, as well as manage multiple streams of income, expenses and reimbursables to save hours of time when filing tax returns. 

For the side hustlers and everyday entrepreneurs 

Got an enterprising person in your life? While they’re busy hustling and bustling, they may find it hard to make time to properly manage their side hustles finances. PocketSmith could be the perfect gift for those with a side hustle

As the only personal finance software recommended by Xero as an alternative to their discontinued Xero Personal product, you can think of PocketSmith as Xero for the personal accountant. 

Entrepreneurs can keep good records by organizing receipts and other household and business documents using the Attachments feature. And they can take recordkeeping one step further by automating it, as PocketSmith will automatically categorize transactions as they come in.

They can also kick spreadsheets to the curb by staying informed with the Income & Expense Report, which can help with their budgeting and tax purposes too. 

For the net worth nurturers

Know anyone who’s captivated by their net worth number? Many people view their net worth as an indicator of financial progress and success. 

PocketSmith’s Net Worth feature allows you to measure your total financial performance across all accounts, assets and liabilities. See your net worth grow with the ability to adjust changes to the increasing values of your assets.

Net worth planners can track all of their financial systems in one place with PocketSmith — personal banking, mortgage, investment and business accounts. If they’re an investing whiz, they can connect to a slew of micro-investing platforms like Sharesies and Pearler, and portfolio trackers like Sharesight.

For the household CFO

Like any good business, a home wouldn’t be successful without its Chief Financial Officer, or CFO. They manage the household’s finances, keep on top of what’s going out and coming into the household’s personal and investment accounts and work towards the family’s money goals.

Household CFOs will love what PocketSmith can do for them and their family. PocketSmith can help them control spending with adaptable budgeting tools, map the path to financial independence, set up ‘what-if scenarios’ to help prioritize decisions and forecast the household’s short, medium, and long-term cash flow.

It’s an irreplaceable household assistant! But we’ll have to leave amusing the kids up to the CEO (Chief Entertainment Officer).

For the digital nomads

It’s not just a Zoom background, they really are in the Bahamas. Digital nomads are working remotely in a different city or a different country, and resolute organization of their finances is a must to successfully live this intrepid life. 

These wandering workers can stick to a budget to fund their travel using PocketSmith’s Budget Calendar, where they can schedule upcoming bills and budgets and see their projected bank balances on any given day. 

They can also track their taxes, keep an eye on ongoing automatic payments back home and organize finances across different currencies with automatic bank feeds, so staying on top of life admin with PocketSmith is easier too.
