5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to fault 27 Feb. 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Instant by name, almost instant by nature. This package is aimed squarely at small business (employing up to 10 people), and provides all the basic accounting tools and features that you are likely to need. The competing product in this market is QuickBooks, but even if you are familiar with that, I would hesitate before spending the extra that it costs, because this Sage package is pretty good value for money. It provides features for looking after your finances, cash flow, VAT, tax return and payroll for up to 10 employees, though to keep this going you’ll need to buy an annual subscription. The only reason I can see for payroll being separate is to charge extra for it, though the tax rules for pay do change from time to time. The payroll package does offer a few useful things though: email support; HR advice; useful guides, plus news and even webinars.

Every accounts package does things its preferred way. If you are new to these packages, then it’ll be no problem. However, if you are used to how a different package works, you may find the going quite tough to start with. Even so, installing the software and expecting to do your annual business accounts is asking for trouble. Sage is aware of this, and provides 45 days of free support, and includes plenty of learning material to help you get started.

Installation is the same for all Sage packages that I have reviewed for Amazon. Insert CD, follow the prompts, and have that all-important licence key ready to enter. Setup is easy, though you’ll need to enter your company and financial information before you can get started with any accounting activities. For all that this package does, and it does a lot, the thing that pay dividends every year is its tax return feature, which takes the pain out of this annual nuisance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full-size accounting for small businesses 3 Mar. 2014
By Bernardette Lugner TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The package provides Sage Instant Accounts and Sage Instant Payroll for up to ten employees. The payroll program is a one-year licence, after which you must pay for updates. Since HMRC and successive budgets routinely change the rules, this is only reasonable. Not having any employees, I am not in a position to review the payroll program, but I installed and used the accounts program.

The Accounts program will cover the needs of a sole trader or limited company of small to medium size in the UK or Ireland, and getting it running and working for your business is no light undertaking, unless you are already familiar with Sage products. Installation of the software is very straightforward; the manual takes you through the steps. Now you set up your company file, and that is simple, too. There is a tutorial section that quickly teaches you to find your way around the many screen layouts in Sage accounts, and it is well worth working through this before you do anything else.

Once the figures from your Trial Balance are entered, you can start using the package, building up customer and supplier records, stock, and the reports you want. Your VAT return, if you need it, is taken care of, including on-line submission. In fact, this package should generate just about every piece of paperwork you need, including quotations, invoices, credit notes and reports, and you can manage your bank accounts and cash, too. It will take some study and practice to understand how all this works. The years of experience that Sage have put into the package are obvious, and the value for money is beyond doubt. Your business is going to depend on your accounting package working perfectly, so you had better get the best you can, take plenty of backups, and do the work of learning the package.

Within the limited scope of my accounting knowhow, I did not spot anything missing. It's a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good package 11 Feb. 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you have a small business or just have the misfortune of having to do self-assessment for HM Revenue and Customs service, then you will need financial package that will help organise and codify your financial arrangements. For me this is a no brainer, as this Sage package will help you in this task. This is a product that is feature rich, with a good range of tools and good user interface.

There is a period of learning curve here, as with all applications – so you will need to invest a small amount time here. While we have had no issues on installing the application, it sad to say that people who bought this on line and then tried to register have had real issues. In conclusion this is good application that does what it is meant to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use 16 Feb. 2014
By A. Kwabula VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an excellent package that delivers on its promise of being easy for people like me who are not accountants. I have used the 2013 version and I find this one improved and more can be done. The interface is cleaner and not busy.

As a small business owner, I just need something that allows me to do among other the following: add Customers, edit customers, add Suppliers, Create Quotes and Invoices (and turning Quotes into Invoices), receive payment, refund customers, or write off a bad debt, add my products. I do not need a heavy-weight financial package that will overwhelm me. This software has accomplished all the above and more. I can easily open the list of customers, invoices or quotations and see a wealth of data on

There is still a small learning curve, if you are totally new to these Financial Packages. I have to admit that I had to see an Accountant to get a few tips (for free, he is an acquaintance of mine!) but since then I am fine. There is really much after the initial setup as you just print reports, create, print invoices or quotes, check how much money you have made and so on.

If you have a small business and you cannot afford an accountant, this should do.
