After years of working between employment and contracting, Ralph decided he needed a real change. He found the roles in his industry to be insecure and didn’t always enjoy parts of the job.

Now, as a limited company contractor he spends less time commuting and more time with his family, giving him a much better work-life balance.

“Crunch is straightforward accounting for ordinary folk.”

With Crunch by his side, Ralph no longer needs to fill out lengthy spreadsheets and use guesswork to understand his accounts. He finds it easy to use our online accounting software, and his dedicated team of client managers and expert accountants are available whenever he needs them.

“Crunch helps me be more productive as an IT contractor.”

Ralph has big long-term plans for his business, and we’re here to help him achieve his goals every step of the way.

Needed to get my business up and running quickly. Crunch took care of so much so quickly. Registering my business with companies house and sorting out the tax side with HMRC - only needing me perform tasks that HMRC do not allow them to perform. The Crunch software is easy to use and there are plenty of helpful videos and documentation. Great service from the Crunch support team, especially from Olivia Beadle. Thank you.
