Working together to make tax returns easier
For many Australians working in the start-up and sharing economy, tax time also means a long time. Because Australia has one of the most complex tax systems in the world and complying can take hours sorting paperwork and receipts.
PwC built Airtax and got together with innovators such as Square and Intuit QuickBooks to help people do their tax in minutes.
By directly sharing their data, users can take care of their paperwork easily and swiftly, effectively tapping in to a digital accountant.
This has enabled over 4,300 sole traders to spend an additional 45,000 hours earning, instead of drowning in admin.
Working together to create liveable cities
Australian cities are feeling growing pains. Green space is dwindling and commute times are ballooning. Fractured planning approaches and misaligned incentives mean the infrastructure that underpins the daily lives of our city dwellers isn’t up to the task of maintaining our cities’ enviable liveability.
PwC is bringing all key stakeholders - governments, business and the community - together to create a citizen-centric approach to developing cities. By integrating and analysing multiple datasets under a joined-up single language, PwC has created a tool that provides granular insights into the way residents live, work and play. This will lead to better decision making by the people involved in planning and building our cities and, ultimately, better liveability for the people who live there.
PwC has put people at the centre of our Cities Agenda - a new way of approaching how we create connected cities.
Together we’re making mental healthcare more accessible
Australia’s mental healthcare system is under stress. Every year four million Australians experience mental health issues, but less than half receive help despite the tremendous efforts of those involved and over $28 billion spent annually.
Together with the University of Sydney’s Brain & Mind Centre, PwC created InnoWell. Providing care through the power of technology, the Innowell platform supports people to get access to the right clinical care quickly and empowers them with transparency around their mental health assessment.
