Sage software isn’t for start-ups, right? Think again…

6 years ago of you reading this will have heard of Sage, the FTSE-100 software company based in Newcastle, but have you heard of Sage One, our cloud-based accounts and payroll software?

No? Well, Sage One was launched in 2011 to provide a low-cost, jargon-free solution for start-ups and small businesses with little or no knowledge or experience of accounting or payroll.

Great Value

Unlike Sage’s desktop software, Sage One is available on a subscription basis for just £5, £10 or £15 + VAT per month instead of a lump sum up front, which keeps costs down and means new businesses can be up and running with high quality software from day one.

Not only that, but Sage One comes with free 24hr telephone and email support from Sage’s award-winning contact centre based in Newcastle meaning help is always there when you need it. In my opinion, this makes Sage One the best value service for start-ups and small businesses in the UK.


As everything is hosted online, you can access Sage One from any Internet-enabled device (including iPad) giving you ultimate freedom and flexibility to work whenever and wherever you like.

Safe and Secure

There’s also no need to install any software on your machine or worry about losing your data as it’s always backed up by Amazon Web Services (arguably the most secure in the world). Being in the cloud means it’s always up-to-date with the latest legislation too (like Real Time Information for PAYE).
