Crunch have helped Ralph strike the perfect work-life balance

Ralph Bolton struck the perfect work-life balance when he became an IT contractor. Crunch’s straight-talking, plain English approach to accounting has helped demystify the world of self-employment and help Ralph’s business grow.

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.

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
