"Bench premium virtual counter "

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I was looking for an accountant to keep my accounts and fit our budget. Bench has helped us grow our business without deserving great knowledge of accounting as it takes care of everything.

What do you like best?

It is a very easy tool to use and understand, they break down everything in a very practical and simple way. It's like having an accountant as part of the staff but for a very low price. All accounts up to date and complying with the laws of the country. Financial planning is a simple task and we are sure to present the books up to date at the time they are requested, since Bench is available at any time to have everything organized.

What do you dislike?

The only thing is the fact of not being able to upload documents through mobile devices.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Nowhere will you get an excellent accountant for such an economical price. I recommend this safe tool that does what it says.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Many benefits as we have more time to devote to produce and this generates big profits for the business. All the accounts a day.

The reporting functions are solid and the fascinating thing is that it saves you time, guarantees quality work and costs less than hiring your own accountant. The customer service is excellent.

What do you dislike?

I have not experienced a single problem with the Bench software. the only thing I do not like is that it does not provide tax accounting services; only accounting and that you can not upload documents through mobile devices.
