Your New Accountant Vs. Your Old Accountant

Online Accountants

Do you ever feel like you can’t ask your accountant the important stuff, like how to spend less money, or what kind of breakfast cereal they’d be? Well, we believe you should be able to ask your accountant these things.

That’s why at Boox you can a build meaningful relationship with your online accountant where you can ask the important, the mundane and the silly.


Your Old Accountant

Hard to get hold of, always busy, never available for more than 15 minutes. They practically speak in a different language composed of industry-specific jargon.

Your New Accountant

Always on hand to help, your friendly new personal accountant is just a phone call away. Best of all, you don’t need a translator to understand them.



Your Old Accountant

Difficult to approach, scoffs at your “stupid questions”, you dread talking to them. You feel like you’re talking to a robot.

Your New Accountant

Helpful, friendly and approachable, your new online accountant is there to help you at every step of your journey. Whether you’re an experienced contractor or a new business owner, we’re happy to give advice on anything!



Your Old Accountant

Tries to help but they don’t really understand or “get” your business, your ethos, your dreams. Perhaps they can’t put themselves in your shoes and understand what’s important to you – or worse, they can’t be bothered to.

Your New Accountant

Takes the time to know you and your business so they can find the best solutions and give you advice you’ll actually want to take.


Sometimes it’s hard to make a change when you’re so used to something. But you don’t need to stick with a service you’re not 100% happy with.

It’s worth trying different online accountants and accounting software to see if they’re right for you before committing to one.
