Why choose Sage?

Whether you're looking for an easy way to manage your accounting, phone support, or if you want to stay complaint with self-assessment returns before time runs out - Sage has you covered.

Why move to Sage?

Reliable support, greater visibility, clear pricing. Here are just some of the reasons why people are making the move to Sage. 

Fast, easy telephone support

Not all software providers have telephone support. At Sage, we do. Contact our friendly teams over the phone or online.

No hidden transaction charges

Some of our competitors charge extra for things like connecting bank feeds or adding additional contacts – that’s all included with your Sage package.

Platforms fuelled by your feedback

Millions of businesses choose Sage because our focus is to make your experience as easy, simple and fast as possible. We’re innovators and most importantly, we’re listeners. Your feedback fuels future functionality so that we deliver the best possible user experience.

Audit trails for greater accuracy

Many accounting software providers offer basic audit logs but these often don’t give a complete picture. With Sage Accounting you can get a more detailed audit trail, making it easy to see transaction numbers, invoice numbers, deleted transactions and more.

Advanced views that accountants love

Work in a way that suits you. Sage gives accountants more flexibility with advanced navigation which organises functionality by ledger, making it easier to get work done faster.

Easily visible sales documents

With a document timeline in Sage Accounting that shows the current status of invoices, credit notes, quotes and estimates, you can resolve any issues quickly and easily.

To make it easier to choose the accounting solution that’s right for your business, here are some questions to ask when making your decision:

  • Will I get the support I need?
    Make sure you get phone and online support so that help is available quickly when you need it.
  • Does the software help me remain compliant?
    Our team stays up-to-date on GAAP and Revenue legislation, helping you remain compliant.
  • Will the accounting software grow with me as my business grows?
    It’s important to pick a solution that works for you now and in the future. Ask about future plans for the product around compliance, artificial intelligence and automation – you want a forward-thinking team of experts by your side.
  • Can the right people get the information they need?
    Make sure you have fast, easy access to your information. Make sure you have access to your finances on the go with an intuitive mobile app with customised views. If you’re using an accountant, make sure you can collaborate with them easily in real-time.
  • What’s included and what costs extra?
    Some companies charge extra for things like bank feeds and have limits on the amount of client data you can add before you get charged. Be sure to find out the costs before you buy.

With Sage you get a complete package of accounting software with free bank feeds and unlimited client data included. You get more detailed functionality with audit trails that show details like invoice and transaction numbers. And most importantly,  you get support over the phone or online for faster help when you need it.
