SAGE Accounts and Payroll

SAGE Business Management software is used by a variety of businesses and this course helps you master the skills to use either SAGE Accounting or Payroll packages, or both. You can start at whichever level or subject you wish. Students often begin at Sage Line 50 beginners but progress onto more advanced SAGE accounting or move over to payroll. You will work at your own pace using a software manual, with the tutor on hand to provide support.
