Emily and Oliver run Tribe - a digital marketing and development agency that specialises in e-commerce and subscription business models. Their transition from freelancers to running a small business has been supported by Crunch’s tailored accounting packages.

“Crunch have helped us to transition from freelance to small business very well. The software provides clarity and makes it easy to keep invoicing up to date.”

As part of their Crunch Small Business package, the duo have unlimited access to their own dedicated small business accountant, as well as their own bookkeeper, to guide them through managing the accounting challenges that can come when your business evolves. Emily says: “The service is always excellent and the team have kindly answered many questions around payroll, company tax and VAT.”

“I like the blend of software and actual people you can contact if you need to. This is particularly helpful when it comes to bookkeeping and allocating expense to the right categories, as well as for helping us complete our Self Assessment as Company Directors.”

Emily’s top advice to anyone starting out? She explains: “Don’t be afraid to ask experts for help! When you’re starting out, you need to wear many different hats as well as do the day job. From accountancy to HR, project management and IT, it’s impossible to be brilliant at everything so make sure you have a great network of people and different skills around you.”

Discover how Crunch’s packages are designed to grow with you and your business, so you can focus on what you love.

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
