It’s crunch time for users of online accounting software!

It’s crunch time for users of online accounting software!

Now here’s an offer you won’t want to miss! Free accounting software! Yes, it’s true; contractors, freelancers and micro-businesses can now use Crunch’s online Solo accounting software completely free of charge.

Crunch Solo (free) has the same features as the company’s premium product. With this free online version of Solo you can do all the normal book keeping tasks such as recording expenses, raising invoices and checking your tax liability. You can’t really get better than that!

Crunch has also launched a monthly subscription version of Solo. It costs a mere £9.50 per month and is actually a scaled down version of the company’s original premium product. It’s designed as a taster package for businesses that aren’t ready to sign-up for a full accounting solution.

If there is a downside to these Solo packages it is that users will literally be flying solo. They won’t get access to an accountant and Crunch will not help them prepare their end of year accounts or deal with HMRC on their behalf. But for the average freelancer who sends out a couple of invoices each month and has little in the way of expenditure, these packages sound ideal.

As Darren Fell, the founder of Crunch explained, the majority of dotcom businesses start off by offering a free service and then announcing costly upgrades. Crunch has done the opposite. It already has more than 2,500 people using the standard subscription package, and by releasing a free version more people can experience the software without committing themselves to a monthly subscription.

The company still offers its complete package that comes with easy to use online software and unlimited telephone support from a team of accountants. For £59.50 a month, this package will also handle HMRC returns on your behalf.
