Both Pandle and Crunch Zero offer free bookkeeping software solutions for business use. There is a considerable difference in the range and availability of features though.
The more established of the two, Pandle, provides users with a much more comprehensive free package. Crunch’s free tier is unfortunately much more limited in its offering. It’s also worth noting that Crunch Zero is only available for Limited Companies.
Pandle’s paid tier, Pandle Pro, is still very reasonably priced, and adds on some heavyweight bookkeeping features. Crunch’s paid options are actually the start of their accountancy services, rather in-software features.
This does make Pandle a far more viable option for accountants and bookkeepers looking for software they can use with their clients.
For simplicity, we’ll stick to software today. You can learn more about Crunch’s accounting services and prices in our accountancy services comparison.
