4.0 out of 5 stars British and future proof!, 20 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Sage 50 Accounts 2014 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a british software company that has made something not only remarkable but is not something you'll be left thinking will it work in the UK ok? You are assured of this front he start but annoyingly you will have to register with sage just like if you have a trial on their website. I guess they'd like to spam you in the future to sell you as much as they can! Marketing gone too far in my opinion as the end user has already spent hundreds of pounds on a product they have extensively researched before parting with the cash.

Now we all pretty much know they're are two leaders in the accountancy software which is this company 'Sage' and its rival 'Intuit' (American based). From the off the software is confusing and is asking you questions that may seem over the top but are there to set up the software accordingly. I would recommend that you read the manual extensively and even get a dummies guide as it will help in the long run.

My favourite feature although I have not tried it out yet is the send to accountant feature allowing you and your accountant to have the same records, this is pretty good in my view as I have previously sent them a copy of exported results that they chop and change and my system never sees the changes. That may not be too much of a show stopper fr some but I do like to have matching records and when you're paying for your acceptant to do a job why not have it all matching up afterwards.

I haven't tried the support out but know a friend that has and sings their praise...

I would like to see on the description a "You can sort your Tax with this but will still require an accountant", why do I make a point of this? Well let's face it if you can sort your tax and do it effortlessly why do you need an accountant if the only other place to file is with companies house? Having attempted to do all of the paperwork before hiring an acceptant I can certainly say that you will still need one and will save you money in the long run so long as your business is bringing in the pennies.

Overall the software is superb but I have to mark it down due to the fact it is very future proofed and vast to get into. Also to note that the packaging and overall look and feel do not seem the same quality you'd get from Adobe leaving you feeling that you have what seems like a counterfeit product that does not reflect the price.

Would recommend so long s you have business that needs the features this offers.
