Handyman business accounting software helps handymen and HVAC professionals spend less time on admin, books and painful tax returns.

It's also ideal for collaborating with your accountant before a return.

Sage Accounting Standard is a popular choice. Use it to reconcile bank transactions and record income and expenses in the office or onsite. Collaborate securely with your accountant online from anywhere on a return too. Sage Accounting is trusted by handymen around South Africa. We work directly with accountants to ensure our accounting software is up-to-date and compliant with SARS standards.

Our award-winning accounting software is built with intuitive technology to make it as easy as possible for you to manage your finances. And with telephone support, online chat and free training, finding answers is simple.

There are plenty of ways you can save time with Sage Accounting. Here are some examples:

Automate manual tasks

By automating tasks, you can cut down the amount of time you spend on manual data entry to save money and focus on the areas of the business that need the most attention.

Spend less time on admin and more time on your handyman 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 using AutoEntry. 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.

Other ways to save time:

  • Use dashboards to instantly view your financial data
