Found Ember at the perfect time. Needed an accountant for our new startup but having such a little time really didn't want the hassle that comes with a traditional accountant. Love the software (much easier to use I've found than QuickBooks etc. What ember offer imo is a perfect blend between a human & excellent software. The software help you keep all your accounts in order so that Cam (our accountant) can spend more time helping us and can immediately see what's up! Adding multi-user access would be good but I understand it's in the works so that's great. I also think including all directors self-assessments in the new pricing would also be nice. Otherwise love the fact that I get a response from an accountant within 5 mins of messaging. Have yet to use the VAT & payroll features (we're a v early stage startup) but happy to report back down the line! Think this will be the new normal for accounting needs in the future.
I started working as a contractor and had no idea what I was doing regarding taxes and accounting. I'd done it all before in another country, but never in the UK. With lots of other stress in life, this was not something I wanted to focus on. Ember have taken care of all my worries, their service is remarkable, they are always ready to give support and make it suuuuuper easy to understand. And they have such a reasonable and fair price. Amazing. Thanks so much to the team!
Let's face it for a business owner tax, accounts and accountants are things we don't want to deal with and its a little scary TBH. A platform like this removed the fog from a scary landscape of jargon, money and dreary accountants.
As I'm new to contracting and work in the digital sphere I was seeking a modern way to run my limited companies accounts. Especially as my work has me travelling a lot i didn't want to rely on face to face meetings or phone calls to do things or get advice from my accountant. Ember provides me with everything I need, the user experience is excellent (but can always be iterated!) linking banks and HMRC to provide an all in one service and at a great price. The fact i was able to ask a question of an accountant on chat and get it answered in 2 minutes was astounding and has really cemented that i have made the right choice and i will be introducing other people I know to Ember in the future. Thanks and keep iterating!! :-)
