Crunch – a provider of accounting services and cloud base accounting for SME’s has released an app downloadable form an iPhone store which allows small traders and freelancers to scan and submit expense receipts from mobiles for free. Crunch was founded by online entrepreneur Darren Fell, with investment from Bebo’s co-founder Paul Birch and former Skype Chairman Michael van Swaaij.
He says that the app for iPhones and Android mobiles brings an end to the laborious task of receipt-logging that freelancers and small businesses face at the end of the tax year.
Snap scans expense receipts and then uploads the details to a company’s accounts within three days. Crunch customers can currently submit up to 10 receipts per month for free and additional ‘bundles’ of receipts needing processing can be purchased after March 2012.
Darren Fell, MD at Crunch said: “Snap is a new added value free service from Crunch, and is part of our aim to make accounting simple and more fun. Snap removes a huge admin burden from small business owners, and means our customers can quickly submit the day’s business expenses whilst travelling back to the office. This gives our customers more time to do the job they’re paid to do and removes the ‘headache’ backlog of processing receipts at the end of the year.”
Aimed at freelancers, contractors and micro-businesses (up to 12 people), Crunch offers what it says are the full range of accountancy services from a team of accountants, with support from its software online. The accountant and software service is available for a fixed monthly fee of 59.50 GBP.
