A bad experience with accountants at a previous company led Darren Fell, 46, to get together with fellow co-founder and accountant Steve Crouch, 52, to set up online accountants Crunch in 2007. Businesses that subscribe to the Hove company’s services receive access to its online accountancy software, which took two years to develop, as well as its own accountants. Aimed at companies with up to ten employees, Crunch attributes its success to the growth in owner-managed businesses since the 2008 recession, helping sales reach £5.1m in 2015.
