The Professional Accountants Division of software giant Sage has officially launched in Wimbledon following its move from Group headquarters in Newcastle.
The administration and management of the Sage Accountants Club – which has over 5000 members – will also operate from the Wimbledon site, the former home of Taxsoft which was acquired by Sage last year.
The Professional Accountants Division will develop and maintain Sage products including Sage Taxation (formerly Taxsoft) and Final Accounts Production (formerly Audit 2000).
The software provider also estimated it had created 30 jobs in the Accounts Division following the move, taking the total number to 120 employees in the department.
Graham Wylie, managing director of Sage Software Limited said the move was officially live this month with the aim of combining the activities for accountants under one roof and to give the division a single focus.
He added: ‘Moving to London reinforces our commitment to accountants who, as a result of this move, will benefit from improved products and services.’
