Here at Hyke we’re kind of obsessed with S Corps. Why? Because the way you organize your business makes a big difference on how much you pay in taxes. And for some self-employed businesses, forming an S Corp could lead to big tax savings.? ?

But, most people don’t take advantage of the benefits of S Corps because the right setup takes time and money - forming an entity, creating a business bank account, setting up payroll, organizing your books and more.? Using technology, real bookkeepers and tax advisors, Hyke makes setting up and running your S Corp simple and affordable.

What's Hyke?

Hyke is an online, back-office platform for the self-employed. We help you set up your payroll, bookkeeping, banking and more. Combining technology with real accounting professionals, we help solopreneurs take advantage of the tax benefits associated with S Corps.

How does Hyke help with tax savings?

Our team of tax advisors are here to help you get the most out of your S Corp. Every quarter we look at your financial information and identify where you could potentially save money on taxes. Our quarterly file reviews ensure that your bookkeeping is up to date and that your personalized tax advice is based on real, accurate numbers.

How much does Hyke cost?

Instead of charging you an expensive set up fee, we make Hyke affordable with bite-sized monthly payments. You get everything you need to start and run your business and take advantage of potential tax savings for just $199/month. Since our members save an average of $15,233* in taxes every year, Hyke pays for itself in just a few months. Plus it’s 100% tax-deductible - how great is that?

What's included in the price?

The monthly price includes filing a single-member LLC and S Corp tax election, getting your EIN and opening a free business bank account. You also get your very own bookkeeper and tax advisor, who will file your personal and business taxes and give you year-round tax advice.

All Hyke plans include Gusto ($45/m value) and QuickBooks Online Essentials ($40/m value).

What's not included in the price?

The price doesn’t include third-party fees (such as fees and taxes charged by your city, state or the federal government), business license filing fees and other license fees, which vary by city. While bookkeeping tools setup, training, quarterly reviews and year-round support are included in the price, bookkeeping is not included.

Why is Hyke invitation-only?

Even though we'd love to help everyone, our goal is to assist those who’d benefit the most from Hyke. Full-time freelancers, like designers, developers, writers, videographers, coaches and consultants who make over $80,000/year, find the most value in Hyke. The majority of our users come from referrals, so if you know someone we should talk to, let us know.
