Crunch Pricing Reviews

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.Ben - www.iamben.co.ukRead the full review

Crunch have literally saved my life. Switched from an old-school accountant who would charge me through the nose for even a phone call - now I can natter on the phone all I like to Crucnh and it doesnt cost me a penny.

Pros
Flat price Personal service Cool software Do my accounts anywhere Fun company

Cons
Software is necessarily complex (I suppose thats accountancys fault rather than Crunchs)

Coming from a different accounting company with poor communications and the feeling I was just a number, Crunch made me feel valued and went out of the way to prove it. So far very good support and additional services all under one umbrella.

Pros
All my accounting needs in one place, with access to a very good platform. Quick response from team when needed.

Cons
Pricing was not as clear as stated, ended up being more than what was pitched on site.

After I had worked out that Crunch isn't something you just buy and get immediately (it takes quite alot of process to set up due to money laundering and other compliance requirements), I was wowed by the clarity, service and decency of the people providing this novel accounting service. They are patient, unfailingly polite, speak perfect English (well they seem to be based in Brighton, but every bit helps) and seemed to really know their stuff. The offer came via www.Ffrees.co.uk so I got a great reward in to my Ffrees acount and overall I am one happy camper

Pros
Clarity. Service. Cost

Cons
It's an accounting service, so don't expect to download it and get working. It takes and bit of patience and time (like any other financial service).

Crunch has given me more oversight and control over the financial performance of my business.

Review Source: Capterra

Lower cost than traditional accountants, more feeling of oversight and control over financial position, more empowerment as a business owner

Pros
The various dashboards make it easier to see how my business is performing in terms of sales, revenue and profit. Invoicing, expensing, bank reconciliation and keeping on top of taxes are all easy. Notifications are clear and prompt, so I'm never at risk of falling behind with my accounting.

Cons
Timed logout is too quick - I'm often toggling between tabs and tasks and don't want to have to sign in every 5 minutes. It's time-consuming to rectify historical mistakes in banking reconciliation. Non-compatibility of certain bank statements is a pain.

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, audited annual accounts) it is hard to do a simple price comparison with book keeping software. In our calculations they have saved us money over the years and offer a low hassle factor (ie no missed VAT submissions or company house returns). Things like having good looking invoices, user-friendly interfaces and people at the end of the phone for operational questions or accountancy issues is invaluable. It definitely helps with keeping tabs on monthly profitability and overdue invoices. Yes, you need to be organised - and you need to enter the information. The best thing I ever did was make my assistant responsible for all aspects of book keeping. Now I can focus more on the business. Overall, if you are looking for a professional accounting partner to help you grow your business I would recommend Crunch.

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

Going massively downhill

Trying to use them as accountants for my small limited company. Pretty tempted to swap to Quickbooks.

Pros
Bank reconciliation with certain banks is free and easy to use. Nice to know your tax exposure at any point.

Cons
They are dropping their iPhone app, which is pretty basic and could be so much better, but allows fast expense entry. No have top use their website, which isn't the best. You no longer have a dedicated account manager, you have a pool of them, so you don't get continuity and there's always a different person responding to emails. There seems to be a huge shortage of accountants, they take literally 1-2 weeks to reply to a basic email. End of year accounts has a lead time of 8 weeks and you have to chase to actually achieve that (I understand that its fully automated, the accountant just needs to double check it, which is pretty basic, I have no idea why it takes so long in this day and age). You ask a specific question and quite often get a generic response. They do not offer any helpful tax advice or go out their way to help. Expensive when compared to the competition.
