What Sage Accountants says

Designed with copious input from professional users for best possible experience for the end-user, Sage Accountant Cloud | Final Accounts allows accountants to file year end accounts for small business clients from multiple devices at any location as data can be accessed and edited remotely.

The system is simple to learn and use. Just enter a trial balance, journals and other data to see an instant preview. Click in any section of the preview to see how balances have been built up or easily jump to the appropriate area tou make a change.

When you need to have a document to show clients, it’s a simple click to export the set of accounts as a PDF file.

2018 roadmap

Since it was first released in 2014, Sage has enhanced the software with subtle improvements to the traditional accounts preparation software model. Through working hand-in-hand with customers, Sage managed to solve problems they didn’t realise they had with their existing solutions, until Sage showed them a better way.

Sage is now focusing on customisation capabilities (styling and content)that will be released over the next year as work to build deeper integrations with Sage Accountant Cloud continues.

What AccountingWEB says

When it first appeared Sage Accountant Cloud | Final Accounts Online achieved an impressive balance between usability and functionality.

Taxfiler has proved the demand for a low cost, no-nonsense accounts production tool within the new generation of cloud practices catering for small and microbusinesses. But Sage's online final accounts module struggled for acceptance as the company dithered around its cloud practice strategy for the past four years.

Some light is beginning to emerge from Sage at this point, with the 2018 launch of the Sage Accountant Cloud, incorporating a complete set of online practice and compliance apps alongside the revamped Sage Business Cloud Accounting program (formerly Sage One).

What do you like?

It produces accounts with ease and the layouts are professional.

What would you change?

If you do a journal in final accounts it does not integrate back into the accounting package. This should be automatic.
