Another great article regarding the evolution of the business strategy of contractor accountants. It is going to be really interesting to see which contractor accountancy firms ends up like Thomas Cook (if anyone). I have no concerns about Crunch's ability to thrive in this new off payroll world. This is because they appear to be led by a very passionate founder/CEO. I worry about all the other mega contractor firms. They all appear to be owned by private equity or venture capitalists who probably don't really care and are just focusing on cost cutting. It is really interesting seeing Crunch spend money/invest to grow, while others are trying to cut costs in order to survive. I think I know which strategy will win long term.

Its a good strategic partnership, transforming a threat into an opportunity. It proves yet again that technology is affecting the accounting profession like never before. Also reminds me of an article named, go digital or go home.
