Sage is the most widely used accounting software in the UK. It is mainly used for the bookkeeping process and is ideal for new and small businesses due to its quality, reliability and ease of use. Sage has relatively low running costs and enables small businesses to manage money, invoices, quotes, suppliers and VAT in a professional and efficient manner. The latest versions of this software integrate with Sage Pay and Sage instant Payroll for even better capabilities.

The range of Sage product packages includes ACT!, Bookkeeping, Accounts, Instant Accounts, Payroll and Forecasting. From the basics of manual bookkeeping and simple payrolls to sophisticated foreign trading and complex financial forecasting, the potential of the Sage network is far reaching.
