How we’re brightening up Greyworld’s finances

Meet Andrew Shoben and Neil Gavin, the creative leaders of a London-based artist collective called Greyworld. Thanks to Crunch they’ve got control of their accounts, a clear idea of what accounting jargon actually means, plus they’ve saved thousands of pounds!

Founded in 1996, Greyworld has a mission to produce works of art that easily engage the public in urban areas. They do this by making art fun and putting it right in front of people.

Andrew’s logic for this dynamic approach is:

“Most people don’t start their day and think “Right, I’m going to go and see some art” – most of the time they go out to buy a tin of beans or visit their grandma.”

Like most businesses started in the 1990s, Greyworld signed up with a traditional accountant and became accustomed to a fairly hands-off approach. After finding Crunch earlier this year, Greyworld realised they could use an online accounting service to get a better understanding of their finances and save a boatload of cash.

Crunch pair accredited accountants with online accounting software, and we give small businesses like Greyworld accountancy advice tailored to their needs.

Our Account Manager Cara helped Greyworld master Crunch’s online accounting software in no time. Soon they could start claiming all of their business expenses, and use our mobile app Snap to record regular taxi trips.

With real time visibility of their finances, on-call support from Cara, and an 80% reduction in their accountancy costs, Greyworld’s finances have never been in better shape.

Now they have more time to create amazing sculptures and installations that brighten up London and cities across the country.
