What is the GDPR?

The GDPR is the new legal framework for personal data coming into effect across the European Union on the 25 May 2018. 

The GDPR represents a significant change to the ways in which Accountants run their practices, and work with clients. Seen as a trusted source of advice and guidance, particularly for small-to-medium sized businesses, Accountants have an opportunity to take the lead with their clients to help them prepare for GDPR compliance.

Safe with Sage

Recent research undertaken by Sage shows that 57% of UK businesses lack awareness surrounding GDPR, while 60% don’t understand what GDPR means for their business.

With GDPR enforcement coming from 25 May 2018, now is the time to put a practical plan in place to prepare for compliance with the new regulation.

At Sage, we recognise this that this level of uncertainty among accountants and their small-to-medium sized business clients, means you may feel unprepared to deal with the impact of the GDPR.

We’re here to help you get GDPR-ready. We understand the challenges you face, and we’re committed to compliance across our range of products. Working together, we can help turn GDPR from a challenge, to an opportunity.
