Making a positive difference

We want our work to mean something.

Churning out accounts and tax returns without thinking about the people behind the business seems a waste of a life to us.

We want to help improve the lives of business owners.

Bringing Big Business Thinking to the Small Business

amish Sheppard is a qualified CIMA accountant with many years experience within industry. For the last five years he has been operating as a short term accountant and consultant, providing interim support to large businesses, and organisations like Siemens, Barclays, The Wood Group, Highland Spring, and the Scottish government. This experience will help him bring big business thinking to start-ups and small business in Edinburgh.

Crunchers and Hamish share a vision for the accounting profession – we believe small businesses deserve more from their accountant than accounts and tax return.


Our vision is not to charge anything for year-end accounts and to have a guaranteed formula for building a great business, called ‘Improving the Numbers’

Improving the Numbers is extremely well researched and each element is supported by real world examples.
Technology and laws need to develop and change before we can offer free accounts. But, we are moving in the right direction. This will allow small business owners to take the fees saved, and invest them with us, in areas that will either grow the business going forward, or provide time savings for the owner to then allow him to concentrate on what is important to him.

The better formula

We’d like you to consider this equation:

Better Accountant = Better Business = Better Life

If all goes well with your business you will have the time and money to enjoy:

– Love and friendship from family and friends
– The feeling of security, stability and control
– A sense of achievement and the status of success
– A great lifestyle – home, car and holidays

Working with us

We are committed to a few core principles:

– Ongoing learning
– Being friendly
– Fairness
– Mutual respect
– Professionalism
– Being honest.

The objective is to become your financial friend – someone you can trust to tell you the truth. Someone who will be there for you, someone who will help get the most out of yourself.
