Small Businesses

Since 1981, Sage (UK) Limited has been at the heart of the British economy and over 830,000 UK companies currently use their software to run their business. One in three people in the UK are paid using Sage payroll software and a third of the FTSE-100 use Sage too.

Sage One is the low-cost, cloud-based accounts and payroll service created for start-ups, small businesses, sole traders, and freelancers. Sage has stripped out all the jargon and simplified each process so that anyone can use the software without any prior knowledge or training. If you do need an accountant or bookkeeper to check things over they can log in remotely using their copy of Sage One Accountant Edition.

As everything is hosted online, you can access Sage One from any Internet-enabled device giving you ultimate freedom and flexibility to work whenever and wherever you like.

There’s no need to install anything on your machine or worry about losing your data as it’s always backed up by us on our secure servers. Being in The Cloud means it’s always up-to-date with the latest legislation, too.

The Cloud gives real businesses, real benefits

Cloud computing makes life easier. Unlike traditional software, Cloud applications are designed to be easy to use and pay for. This means everyday tasks can be automated and, often, done on mobiles, tablets, or laptops. By making you more efficient and productive, Cloud computing is automatically good for business.

How the magic happens

The most common form of Cloud computing for small businesses is software as a service (SaaS). This means you are not renting the hardware to run your IT. Instead you pay to use the software that runs on computers owned by service providers’ servers. Because everything is hosted remotely, nothing has to be installed on your computers, and it means everyone in your company has access to the same, up-to-date information.

Sage One has teamed up with Moneypenny and you can now get an extended free 60 day trial on Sage One Accounts and Sage One Payroll (5 employee version only). 

Sage One Accounts

Sage One Accounts is perfect for small business owners who want greater control of their finances, but don’t necessarily have an accounting background or time for software training. You can produce and submit your VAT return in minutes, create and send personalised invoices as well as being able to produce reports allowing you to see your business at a glance.
