A CORPORATION TAX PROGRAM has been launched by Sage, as it seeks to simplify its offering to businesses.
Originally developed for large corporate organisations, Sage chose to extend the Sage Corporation Tax application to smaller businesses that had claimed they were seeking a “more straight-forward” program than previous services.
The functionality in the offering builds upon the existing Lite variant, including the completion of the CT600E charities schedule; the ability to deal with multiple trades and; the inclusion of enhanced reporting and administration.
To ensure a smooth transition for clients, Sage will be providing a support package to all existing customers, comprising a series of customer events throughout the UK, telephone consultations, a telephone support line, training webinars, transition support packs and assistance with installations. All customers will receive transition information well in advance of their current licence expiry.
Paul Tooth, managing director of Sage accountants’ division UK & Ireland, said: “Sage has made a seven figure investment in a new solution that has usability at its heart and is designed to save time when generating corporation tax returns for clients. We’ve made it easier to learn and easier to use.”
