DIY Squirrel Street accounts are forever free and include 5 digital documents to be processed each month! They're the best solution for if you wish to pause your paid subscription during a quiet period and wish to upgrade again later.

Documents can be submitted via mobile app, email or upload, as the DIY plan does not include our Mail-In service. 

You are welcome to submit an unlimited number of documents to Squirrel Street via email or the web uploader (using the Add document button on the top right hand corner of your receipts page) and enter the data yourself using your desktop computer. You can sign up for a DIY forever free plan here.

  • Unlimited storage in the cloud for all of your digital documents

  • Full access to our comprehensive online document management system

  • Access and use of most of the export and integration options offered in Squirrel Street
