Crunch’s new Snap app reduces paperwork for SMEs

From today, small business owners can quickly submit expenses as they are incurred from any location for free with Crunch’s new Snap app. The app for iPhones and Android mobiles provides Crunch customers with a free service that 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. Crunch is the only accountants to offer this app service at no extra cost.

Darren Fell, MD and founder 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 the full range of accountancy services from a team of accountants, with support from its easy to use software online. Crunch makes bookkeeping tasks much simpler and puts the customer in control, it also enables clients to see in real time their tax liability.
