I'm just starting to move over to Sage - Wifes an accountant and she did nothing but moan doing my last end of year so I've given in and bought it just to shut her up.

Got it with Act bundle which I'm trying to make use of, but as it doesnt sync with my phone I'm not getting much return from that bit.

A word of warning Betty - Sage is great if you understand the language of accountancy - if you don't then it is a very long learning curve. The accountants love it because it speaks their language. For example there is no "correcting mistakes" - everything stays recorded. You also need to understand what ledgers are, how credit and debit accounts work - not very straightforward. Oh and General Journal Entries - I could go on. Yes Sage is the best - but I dont speak Spanish either! Intuit Quickbooks and Microsoft Accounting are cheaper and easier for those of us not well versed in Accountantese!

I use sage for another business i run with my wife and its fantastic....untill something goes wrong! it is very indepth and like andy says its accountant talk so you need to be carefull.

you also need to check each invoice for vat add up as i have noticed somtimes ita a penny out.

also if you know some one with it you can just upload it to yours lol!

another note, as andy says there is no hiding, if you put somthing in it stays in! tax men love it, its best to back up regular so you can do a restore!

Yeah, I pay, but only cus it brings the profit line down. As she's listed as a director it doesnt make much difference to me
