UK vendor Sage offers one of the most comprehensive suites of accounting software tools for both desktop and online accounting, enabling users to analyse and manage VAT, invoices, stock, budgets, cash flow and payroll.
Businesses can choose from a range of different packages: Sage Business Cloud Accounting, Sage 50cloud, Sage Financials and Sage Enterprise Management.
We recommend Sage 50cloud for small businesses looking to scale. Within this accounting service there are three options to choose from: Sage 50cloud Essentials, Sage 50cloud Standard or Sage 50cloud Professional.
With Sage 50cloud Standard, users can take advantage of an on-premise client or a powerful cloud suite.
Also, if you already run Microsoft Office, Sage 50cloud integrates with Microsoft Office 356, providing easily exportable financial reporting in Excel.
Users can also take advantage of remote access, an intuitive project costing tool and solid day-to-day financial management.
Typically aimed at startups and micro businesses, Sage One Accounting is also a great choice, providing sales invoices, payment tracking, balance sheets and a tool to calculate and submit VAT returns to HMRC.
