Through hard work, reputation and a willingness to adapt, Ella has grown her business from around three driver medicals a week to over 20 in West Yorkshire. To date, she's had over 500 customers, and has no intention of resting on her laurels - Ella is rapidly growing the business through franchising and hoping to make it nationwide in 2021.

“Crunch provides me with amazing support when I need it and all at a fraction of the cost of any previous accountants.”

Ella turned to Crunch so that the team’s expert accountants and client managers could guide her through the often-confusing world of tax. Complemented by easy-to-use software, Ella has the tools at her disposal to have a clear overview of how her business is performing.

“Crunch has an easy to navigate platform that as well as doing what it says on the tin, educates me and helps me plan financially and develop my business.”

For anyone starting out, Ella urges you to be kind to yourself. She says: "Have confidence in yourself, in what you can offer and what you know you can achieve. Plan carefully, reflect often and remember that we all make mistakes but those who are successful don't dwell on them, they simply learn from them and grow."

Crunch’s online accounting packages are designed to give freelancers, the self-employed and small businesses the peace of mind they need when it comes to tax. Find out more.
