FAQs

Sage Accounting is software for managing your business’s accounting. It allows you to quickly and easily create and track invoices, track cash flow, accept payments, record transactions, automate admin, capture expenses, and much more. 

Sage Accounting is designed for small business owners (supports unlimited users) and sole traders (with or without staff) operating in any industry – from professional services to construction to retail. 

You can use Sage Accounting either by yourself or with collaborators. It’s easy to give access to multiple users, including an accountant (if you use one). You don’t need any previous experience with accounting software to get started. Functionality can be extended to include payroll.  
Sage Accounting works on any PC or laptop (including MAC and Windows), any smartphone (such as iPhones and Android phones), and any tablet device (such as iPads or Android tablets). Sage Accounting also comes in an app for iOS and Android. 

Because Sage Accounting works in the cloud, you don’t have to install anything – you simply access the product through your internet browser.  

The mobile version has a slightly more simplified feature list, but you have access to the core features across all devices. Any work done on one device will be automatically updated across all devices. You can use all three devices or just use one device if you prefer.  

Your data is protected by bank-level security at all times and is automatically backed up in the cloud. You never have to worry about losing any of your work if your internet connection goes down.
Sage Accounting is designed for high performance even on low internet speeds. A standard phone connection (with typical mobile 3G speed) has you covered.  

For those of you interested in the specs, a minimum download speed of 2mbps is essential to keep Sage Accounting up to date and to take full advantage of its features. Your smartphone will give you more than enough speed to use Sage Accounting smoothly. 

For optimal performance we also recommend that you use the most up-to-date version of your web browser. You can take a no-risk, no-obligation free trial to see whether you’re happy with the speed of Sage Accounting on your internet connection.
Absolutely. It’s simple and straightforward to import your current data from Excel (and other spreadsheets and data systems) into Sage Accounting, including your customer and supplier details, your products and services, opening balances, transactions from bank statements, invoices, and your chart of accounts. We’re on hand to show you how, or you can watch our step-by-step video guides. 
Sage Accounting is a monthly subscription service. You can set up a direct debit or pay with your credit or debit card. To set up a direct debit you need to have a bank account in the UK with a local currency in Pound sterling (GBP). 

The VAT per month is 20% of the product’s monthly price. There are no hidden costs and never will be.  

A free 30-day trial is also available. It takes only 2 minutes to get set up. You don’t need to provide a credit card to get started–you will never be charged during your trial. 

All 3 packages (Start, Standard, and Plus) give you the fundamental features you need to manage your accounting. 

  • Accounting Start is ideal for businesses who are starting out. This version of the software is popular with sole traders and micro-businesses. 
  • Accounting Standard is ideal for small businesses. It offers everything Start offers, plus more advanced features. For example, the Standard package lets you upload information by simply snapping a photo of receipts, invoices, and supplier statements. 
  • Accounting Plus offers all of the Standard features plus support for multiple currencies and inventory management. 

You can upgrade, change, or cancel plans at any time.  

After filling in your details, you will be taken to your Login page where you can get started straight away.  

We’ll send you a welcome email with a quick-start guide, tips, and helpful resources, including how to get support any time you need it. 
All the data you entered during your free trial will be available for up to 90 days after your trial period has ended. At any point during this time you can purchase Sage Accounting and reactivate your account. By entering payment details you will be eligible for 2 months free before the standard monthly rates apply.

We’ll email you with a reminder before your trial expires. You can purchase (or cancel) Sage Accounting at any time during your trial.
