Online accounting for Freelancers and Micro Businesses – now available for free

We all know that keeping good financial records is a must.  Whether you’re trading as a sole trader or limited company, you’ll always need to know how much you’ve spent, how much you’ve invoiced and how much you’re owed!

As busy business owners, it’s tempted to put off the book keeping in favour of your client’s work, or alternatively, if you have an accountant to simply dump the screwed up receipts on his/her desk.

Often or not, a simple spreadsheet will do the trick.  Or, you could opt for cost effective book keeping software.

Crunch, online accountants, have now produced accounting software called Solo.  And the best bit it’s available for FREE to freelancers, contractors and small/micro businesses.

The software is identical to Crunch’s original premium product and allows users to manage their bookkeeping, raise invoices, record expenses and view their tax liability in real time, all at zero cost.

Crunch has already built a successful business in online accounting by providing a unique premium product supported by ongoing advice from their team of accountants. Now, by providing the software for free (the unlimited support from the accountants is not available with Solo), Crunch is putting business owners in control, making them aware of their tax liability whilst speeding up and simplifying the bookkeeping process. This goes against the normal dotcom business model.

Darren Fell, the company’s founder and MD, said:

“It is Crunch’s mission to help the self-employed and small business community by continually improving our cost-effective accountancy services. Today we’re taking that one step further by offering our powerful software for free.

“Most dotcom businesses build a mass following by providing a freemium service before announcing costly upgrades. We now have more than 2,500 clients on our standard subscription package, and opening up our software for free means more people can experience the power of Crunch without any cost commitment.”
