Online VAT software you can depend on

Take the hassle out of your next return

If you’re choosing the right rate, setting how often to apply VAT, running reports or submitting returns to Revenue, it's easy using our VAT-compliant software for small businesses.

Buying and selling after Brexit?

No matter what form Brexit takes, Sage Accounting can handle trade to and from Northern Ireland, Europe and further afield. Our software automatically removes VAT for sales in the EU and the rest of the world, and can produce the revised VAT Return of Trading details form.

As you buy, sell and create VAT returns online, Sage provides a monthly snapshot of your current position and a record of previous VAT submissions.

Submit VAT returns to Revenue with ease

Sage Accounting is built to simplify even the most complex VAT returns. We do all the calculating for you. So all you need to do is push a button and watch your VAT return be submitted to Revenue.

Select the right VAT rate

Sage Accounting supports many different VAT rates, including Standard, Reduced Rate, Second Reduced Rate, and Zero Rated - all to help you take control of collected and paid VAT.

Keep a digital paper trail
