The cure for depressed accountants? Online software.

Posted on Nov 30th, 2010 | Tax

Terrible news has reached us at Crunch Towers about a growing number of stressed out accountants turning to drink or drugs to deal with the troubles of their working day.

According to the Chartered Accountants Benevolent Association (CABA), the average age of those accountants seeking help has fallen from 64 to 48 years old.

There is a huge amount of pressure on accountants to ensure their clients accounts are running smoothly, and that they remain as tax-efficient as possible. Mistakes by an account can be costly. With all these pressure, it’s crucial that an accountant strikes the right work-life balance. Intelligent online accounting software can play a crucial role in this.

Take the Crunch accountants. They don’t have to get involved in all the time-sapping work of calculating VAT increases, manually sorting through a clients paper files, or doing many of those mundane accounting chores. Why? Because the technology does it for them, leaving them more time to focus on the more complicated accountancy and tax issues – the very issues they’ve specifically trained for.

Technology isn’t the only thing that helps them, they’ve also got the assistance of the Crunch account managers who look after the day-to-day needs of the customers.

Everyone who uses Crunch, whether they be freelancers, contractors or small business owners, can be assured that their accountant isn’t going to be overworked and clapped-out when they call up.
