**Yesterday (Wednesday 4th December), Sage Group announced that Sage One had grown from 6,100 paying customers in the UK and Ireland to over 21,000 by the end of September 2013 – an increase of more than threefold in 12 months.**

We’re delighted to have helped so many start-ups and small businesses to manage their accounts and payroll more efficiently and cost-effectively with Sage One.

We’re also thankful for the fantastic community of developers, partners and accountants who have worked with us over the past 12 months.

We’re proud too of the way we helped our customers deal with complex business challenges like Payroll Year End and the new Real Time Information (RTI) legislation with the minimum of fuss, whilst providing them with an unrivalled level of 24 hour telephone and email support, included as part of their subscription fee.

We’re very excited about the year ahead and look forward to supporting even more businesses through our expanded range of services which now includes the advanced Sage One Accounts Extra that launched at the end of October 2013.
