We work with Bench.co, which has a similar model to Vettery. It’s a really intuitive platform that makes monthly updates easy. We have a dedicated support manager that reminds me to upload my various monthly statements and keeps an eye on any abnormal expense. We work with Withum to get our taxes filed and Bench.co helps bridge that communication seamlessly.

Bench.co is a Canadian company. It’s really cheap and I don't have to think about it. You can connect to your account through their platform and have an overview of the situation. Next year we will have to start doing accrual accounting, and that will bring in a new set of challenges--I am not sure that we will be able to stay with Bench.
CEO - Hive
We are happy, with Bench.co. It’s been working for us. I haven’t really tried other things.

We use Bench as an online bookkeeper. It was recommended to me by another startup friend. Bench has a good balance of affordability and ease of use. I like the simplicity of it. Bench is hooked up to our bank account, so it sucks in revenue. All I have to do is email receipts. We might outgrow it because there are some limitations (like they don’t do accrual accounting), but it’s good to get started with.

Bench was too expensive for a starter company. Our system is pretty simple and we do not have to collect sales tax.
Founder - Nicely Noted
Bench handles all of our accounting.
Co-founder - Bauxy
Bench is awesome. We love this company. A huge advantage of using Bench is that you do not need any accounting experience to get started. They give you an accountant on a monthly basis, and the accountant does all the hard work for you!
Founder & CEO - Roomi
We use Bench for accounting, and it’s pretty good. It’s definitely more of a service than a software though. The only downside with using them is that they’re pretty expensive, though cheaper than hiring someone.
Founder & CEO - Knowtify
I've been keeping our books in a spreadsheet, but I recently signed up to use Bench to handle bookkeeping before taxes. I haven’t explored them too much, but from the onboarding standpoint, and from reviews I've read, it seems to be a good platform.
Co-founder - Point
We love its ease of use and good service.
Co-founder - Monaeo
It’s complicated. We're using them right now just to get accounting tasks off of our plate, but it's way more than we need. I'm not sure what we'll ultimately go with.
