At Crunch, we’re always looking to improve and develop our software to make our clients’ lives easier. That’s why we’re pleased to let you know that Crunch now supports Open Banking through our online accounting software.

Over the past decade, we’ve invested millions each year to develop our software. We’re continuing to develop great new features and lead the way with our award-winning combination of online accounting software and service.

We know that one of the things that some clients find time-consuming and inconvenient is manually uploading bank transactions using a ‘.csv’ file. That’s why we listened to your feedback and implemented an Open Banking solution to increase the number of banks that we can get secure feeds from.

By linking your bank account to your Crunch software through Open Banking, you’ll be able to enjoy a quicker, cleaner, and more secure service without the hassle of manual uploads of bank data. Open Banking can reduce the risk of human error, save you time, and make keeping your Crunch account up to date that little bit easier.

What banks are you working with?

We’ve currently established feeds with seven major banks: Barclays, Lloyds, Santander, Starling, Halifax, Natwest and HSBC. We’re always looking for new banks to offer a secure integration with, and we’re looking to include Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Marks & Spencer, Nationwide, RBS, and Ulster in the following months.

When can I start enjoying Open Banking?

Right now, if you like! Two Open Banking feeds are available as standard to all clients on our Crunch Two Plus package, and three feeds are included in our Crunch Three package. If you’re already a Crunch client then we’ve got a Help Centre article with instructions on how to add Open Banking to your Crunch software.

Additional Open Banking feeds can be purchased for just £2.50 +VAT per month per feed. This optional add-on is available to clients on either of our Crunch Two Basic or Plus packages, and our Crunch Three package.

Open Banking is just one of the many exciting upgrades we’ve made and will be making to our Crunch software to make our clients’ lives simpler and easier. We’ll keep you updated with more news on software updates in the coming months, so stay tuned!
