      FAQs

      In what’s known as ‘Wave 1’ of the Help to Grow: Digital scheme, there are two technology types that you can purchase through the scheme:  

      • Accounting 
      • Customer relationship management (CRM) 

      Once you’ve joined the scheme, your eligibility will be checked before you access the discount. You’ll then have access to a voucher that will cover 50% of the cost of Sage Accounting for an initial 12-month period for a maximum of £5,000.  

      By managing your finances and accounting digitally with software like Sage Accounting, you can spend less time on manual admin like producing spreadsheets and paper files. It also makes it much easier to centralise data and boost productivity by keeping it stored in a single place online.    

      With the extra time you’ll get from going digital, you can spend more time with customers and more time thinking about your overall company strategy. 

      Sage Accounting is software for managing your business’s accounting and it’s available to purchase through the Help to Grow Digital scheme. 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 and 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. 

      Once you’ve signed up and you’re ready to buy, you can review the terms and conditions for the scheme and Sage Accounting.  
      Both are part of the government’s Help to Grow scheme. The two are complementary and both aim to help boost your growth and profitability. Help To Grow: Digital focuses on technology and digital skills, bringing you discounted software. Help to Grow: Management is an executive development programme with a 12-week curriculum. You can sign up to it and learn financial management, growth strategies, and discover practical approaches to digital adoption.  

      With a 2-month free trial of AutoEntry you can spend less time on admin and more time on your work with a paperless way to manage receipts. Simply snap, scan or email a photo of your receipts, bank transactions, invoices or other documents for your Sage accounts. Then categorise, publish, and share them with your accountant through Sage Accounting. AutoEntry captures tax summaries and full line item details including description, quantity and unit price so it’s an easy way to log the information you need, when you need it. AutoEntry is not covered by the Help to Grow: Digital voucher.
