I have just started my own small buisness so needed a software package to support this. After loads of looking finally decided to try out this Sage Instant Accounts V 16. I had heard loads of good things and the programme was suggested to me by another user.
This is a 1 company 1 user license - just enough for me as a sole trader.
Comes well packed.Not too much but enough to keep CD safe. It is a super item and does just what is says it is an "Instant Financial Package". Suspect this software is aimed at a buisness with 10 or less employees and of course a sole trader.
There are actually two parts to this really
The set up is really easy Insert CD, follow the prompts, and have the all-important licence key ready to enter. Setup is that easy although I needed to enter your company and financial information before I could get started with any accounting activities.
As a "sole trader" I have only had a quick look at the payroll part. But from what I can see like the whole package it is easy to use and has some great pages.
As for the bookkeeping part, Instants Accounts I have added some transactions and everything looks good.
Really like the tax return area which is very helpful and does seem to take the worry away from this.
When loading the software the programme started quickly and easy.
This Sage is priced a bit higher than many other similar but, if need to use a payroll then this package of is great value for bookeeping, National Insurance,tax returm annual audit and so on.
Pleased with the cost too cheaper than main rival quickbooks.
