    Very useful


    There are probably more user-friendly accounting packages than Sage but I can’t fault the course delivery.

    Very good course to use Sage One


    I found this course very useful. It guides you well, the Tutor shows in real-life situations, which includes including codes at the Chart Accounts or in case you got a mistake on how to correct it.
    Thank you so much. I recommend this course!
    The only suggestion is to use the Sage Business Cloud Accounting Payroll, which is easier to use and has more codes at the Chart of Accounts.
