Why you'll love our bookkeeping

What you'll get

A flexible bookkeeping service

You only pay for the bookkeeping you need. Whether you need a one-off service to bring your accounts up to date, you need an express service because you’re facing a deadline or fine, or you’re looking for regular bookkeeping support to take it off your hands completely, you can choose the service that’s right for you. Our expert bookkeepers will review your Crunch account and provide a quote to bring it up to date.

Peace of mind

Our expert bookkeepers are quick and efficient and will make sure your company accounts are fully reconciled and all your expenses are correctly recorded. You’ll know exactly what you owe in tax, how much you can take in dividends, and ensure you meet your statutory filing deadlines - avoiding those fines from HMRC and Companies House.

Free up your time

We make our online accounting software as simple to use as possible, but some people just don’t have the time, or desire, to reconcile their accounts and match up their bank statements with their expenses. By putting an expert in charge, you’re freeing your time to focus on running your business.

Got a question about our bookkeeping service?

How much bookkeeping time should I buy?

+

That depends on your needs - we'll look at the number of transactions in your Crunch account to help you decide the amount of bookkeeping support you need. This will be based on how many bank accounts, or credit cards you use and how many monthly transactions you record as a business.

Why do I need bookkeeping?

+

Bookkeeping is a vital part of accountancy. If you want to have an accurate view of your business finances then your Crunch account must be up to date each month. Once your account is up to date, you’ll know exactly how much tax you owe and the amount of dividends you can take from your company. Your account must be up to date for us to be able to produce important documents such as your annual accounts, personal income (on Form P11D(b) and Form P60) and to complete your annual Self Assessment Tax Return. You might also need to bring your accounts up to date to apply for a loan or a mortgage.

Can I get bookkeeping if I’m not a Crunch accounting client?

+

Sorry, our bookkeeping service is only available to Crunch clients. If you're looking for help and support with bookkeeping, we have a helpful article with handy tips on how to streamline things and keep on top of your bookkeeping. Of course, we’d also be happy to show you how our great online accountancy service can make looking after your business finances a breeze.

Is bookkeeping hard?

+

In our Crunch system, it shouldn’t usually take more than a few hours a month to keep your account up to date. Your client managers can give you tips on how to make things easier with tools like automated bank feeds, our Snap expenses app, and Tripcatcher mileage app. If you have more complicated accounts, or you simply need to free up more time, then our bookkeeping service could be ideal.

Who will do my bookkeeping?

+

One of our expert, qualified bookkeepers will take care of your bookkeeping needs. They are quick and efficient and they know our system, and your Crunch account, inside-out, so you can be sure everything is taken care of correctly.

How quickly will my bookkeeping be done?

+

Once you’ve sent us all the documents we need - such as receipts and your company’s banking information (on a CSV file or direct bank feed) - we will ensure your bookkeeping is completed within 20 working days of receiving all the information we need. If you don’t have a CSV file or bank feed, you can send us copies of your company's bank or credit card statements, but the service will cost more due to the additional time involved in processing these.

Is there an express bookkeeping and Annual Accounts service?

+

Yes, if you’re facing a looming deadline, or even worse a fine, then you may be interested in our Crunch Express Bookkeeping and Accounts Preparation Service. We’ll complete the bookkeeping necessary to reconcile your company’s accounts up to the end of its accounting period. Our expert accountants will then prepare your Accounts for you to review and when approved we’ll submit them to HMRC and Companies House in the shortest possible time. The cost and timescales will be confirmed to you in a personal quote. The minimum turnaround period for the Express Bookkeeping and Accounts Preparation Service is 20 working days.

We received brilliant support from Luke and Karly regarding securing our first mortgage. They were both extremely helpful and very quick to respond to our questions. Given our tricky situation, myself being a contractor and my partner in full-time work it required a bit of back and forth with the lender however it was very quickly sorted and our mortgage approved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Crunch to friends especially those who are self-employed/contractors. Thank you!

I have taken the plunge and gone part time in a new business and have found crunch idea to take the pressure off me from a financial side . I had an outstanding call yesterday with Danielle who went above and beyond to help me and be patient due to dyslexia and lack of confidence in form filling. The way she was with me was simply outstanding, and I now have an excellent overview of how to input and generate invoices. This would not have been achieved but for this wonderfully patient client support manager thank you so much, and what I thought was going to be a clunky process has turned out to be far easier than I thought. Simply brilliant support
