The partnership will see Easyspace offer web hosting and domain name advice and packages while Crunch will provide advice on tax and finances, plus on-going accounting support for the UK’s fast-growing startups.
Sarah Haran, managing director of Easyspace, said: “We can provide the critical tools to get a startup business online in the first place, while Crunch has the expert knowledge on how to manage the financial side. Together we can provide the best advice and support possible to help lots of exciting new ventures get online and start trading successfully.”
Darren Fell, managing director of Crunch, continued: “We’re taking on more and more startups every day, so it seemed logical to find the very best technology partner to go alongside our financial and tax expertise. A website and an accountant are two absolute business essentials, so we’ve put together the best possible package.”
The partnership is being launched with a free seminar entitled ‘Accountancy In The Cloud’ at Google Campus, Bonhill Street, London on Thursday 18 July. The event is especially for startup businesses and takes place from 6.30pm to 9:30pm. There is no need to register in advance, so you can just turn up.
Crunch offers a unique package combining phone advice from a team of expert accountants with easy-to-use online accounting software for a fixed monthly fee. It was founded by online entrepreneur Darren Fell, with investment from Bebo’s co-founder Paul Birch and former Skype Chairman Michael van Swaaij. Easyspace is part of award-winning cloud company iomart Group plc.
