Sage Accounting has all the features microbusinesses and startups need to run their entire business, and it's offered in two very affordable subscription plans: Sate Accounting Start (starting at $10.00/month) and Sage Accounting (starting at $25.00/month).
Different startup accounting software options have differing interfaces, features and integrations. But typically, microbusiness and startup accounting software, like Sage Accounting, is used by providing a secure connection to a business bank account that automatically imports transaction data into the software and auto-categorizes the transaction by the predetermined and customized parameters you choose when you set up your software. Some software for startups and microbusinesses only help organize the books. Sage Accounting can handle the books, plus take payments, track expenses, capture receipts automatically with AutoEntry, and automatically create and send invoices.
Starting a business with a small team and a lean budget, there's no time to waste on admin or worrying about the accuracy of your financials. Accounting software for startups like Sage Accounting helps you manage your finances with fast and accurate automation, so you can rest easy knowing your numbers are correct and make smart business decisions.
