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.

Crunch have been exceptional over the years that I have been with them. When I started my Ltd company it was with Crunch, I made the mistake of moving away to another accountant but ended up coming back to Crunch. The accessibility and ease of use of the platform are big benefits. Additionally the team are exceptional and always happy to guide you through the process

Genuinely helpful and professional people! So so happy I signed up with crunch. As a first time entrepreneur I have a lot of things to worry about and accounting has been taken off my shoulders completely. I get answers and guidance on literally everything. I did consider doing accounting by myself at the beginning but so glad that I didn’t because there are so many things to consider even if you are just a contractor with one employee. I am sure I would have missed things and would be losing money. Crunch continuously review to make sure my finances are managed in the most efficient way. Also I get response within 20 minutes which is very quick. So worth the money! Thanks crunch
