This is very intuitive software, looks nice and navigation is good. Working in IT, its nice to find some good software like this which doesnt require training or much explaination.

Super helpful, easy to use, love the system. Hassle free accounting - I feel like they actually 'get' me and understand what I'm doing.

B

Cons
I am shocked of their very poor ethics and consideration against freelancers and small businesses.

It went sour after that and eventually rock bottom and perished, leaving a very bad taste in my mouth and a very stressful 18 months.

I've had 5 different account handlers in 6 years all of which seem a bit clueless.

Been using Crunch now for 5 years. Has been a huge help in growing my company - www.benjaminball.com

Reviewed 7 years ago

I was an early adopter of the Crunch service because I bought into the idea of an online book keeping system backed up by accounting services. Crunch has delivered on all counts. Over five years we have grown our business nearly five-fold and Crunch has been a reliable partner throughout. Because they do so much more than the standard book keeping software systems (ie VAT returns, PAYE returns,...

Pros

- Easy to learn and to use - Combines accounting with book keeping - Good for cash flow - Responsive people - Good alerts so accounting deadlines are met

Cons

- new developments are not always as quick to arrive as you would like - financial reporting is OK, but not amazing - certainly good enough for a small business

Easy to navigate and reassuring

Reviewed 8 months ago

day-to-day business accounting. Ensuring I am always ahead of my accounting requirements. Even after striking off my company, Crunch have continued to offer support with HMRCs system issues. If I find myself as a sole trader or setting up a company in the future, I will be coming straight back to Crunch

Pros

Straightforward to use. Easy to track everything and stay on top of it. Is the difference between running a company successfully (or paying fines to HMRC)

Cons

Small learning curve and mobile app at first had a couple of small bugs, but nothing major.

Vendor response

Crunch - Sigh

Reviewed 9 years ago

Oh how I used to love Crunch, the answer to all my one ban band freelance design business woes, well that's how it was for the first 6 months. It went sour after that and eventually rock bottom and perished, leaving a very bad taste in my mouth and a very stressful 18 months. On the front of it, it's great at invoicing and keeping a tally of ins and outs. Until you have to update all your expenses...

Pros

Not many

Cons

Plenty

Vendor response

Hi there, We've been unable to find anyone on our system matching your name so unable to get in touch directly to sort these issues out, obviously very sorry to hear you've had a sub-par experience with us. To address some of your issues directly: Raising invoices / recording expenses and bank reconciliation are part and parcel of any online accounting or bookkeeping system. We recently launched...

Excellent stuff

Reviewed 9 years ago

A few years back I quit my job at an agency and started freelancing. Work came in, everything was great. I debated setting up a company but it looked complicated - it was less about the invoicing and whatnot, more about the legalities. After about 6 months of doing it myself, I realised it just wasn't efficient and decided to do something about it. I had no idea what to look for, but after a suggestion...

Pros

Super helpful, easy to use, love the system. Hassle free accounting - I feel like they actually 'get' me and understand what I'm doing.

Cons

None, really.

Running a small company made easy

Reviewed 7 months ago

Overall experience was excellent. The customer support was always helpful and the system was easy to use. I could not have run a single owner/directory company without them.

Pros

The best thing about using Crunch was the peace of mind when dealing with invoicing and tax. Everything was clear and I could be sure things were being handled properly.

Cons

There were sometimes bugs in the front end, like reconcilling bank account entries via .csv file. Upload and reconcile in one go didn't work, but uploading first, then reconcilling separarely after refreshing the front end did. It took a while before they did a UI refresh, and the bug still existed after that, but it wasn't a deal breaker!

Vendor response

Our product team are really keen to act on all the feedback we receive about the software and are taking a look at the bug you've mentioned. Thanks again! All the best, Jen - Client Experience Manager
