ABOUT SAGE ACCOUNTS SOLUTIONS
Our business is run by experienced Sage consultants, who are qualified accountancy and I.T. professionals. We’ve been working together since 2000 and in 2007 decided to form Sage Accounts Solutions, as the services we provided supported Sage software users.
Since forming in 2007 we’ve developed our range of services to include system implementation, integration with third party applications, layout design, data import/export to name but a few, however our core focus is and will always be training and support for Sage users.
What makes us different
We bridge the gap between accountancy and I.T. training, as we have an extensive knowledge of the software from a user perspective, an understanding of accountancy and are trained to a technical level on the software.
We are one of a small number of Sage Accounting Partners in the UK who are accredited and certified by Sage (UK) Limited to train and support the following software:
- Sage 50 Accounts
- Sage 50 Payroll
- Sage 50 Pension Module

MEET THE TEAM
Gaynor - Sage Consultant & Technical Support
For over 20 years, Gaynor has been training and supporting Sage users and has of business experience. She specialises in Sage support and helps clients with their management accounting.
Gaynor spent 12 years in banking before moving into commerce, to have the flexibility to work full-time around the needs of her family. During this time she was asked to assist other business owners with their accounts.
In 1993 she made the decision to start her own business supporting users of Sage. The business grew organically, through recommendation. During the next 10 years she helped a broad cross-section of businesses located in Norfolk and Suffolk with their accounts. As the business grew she was increasingly asked to help people get to grips with Sage, so they could keep on top of their accounts and use the program to produce management information. Gaynor had to step back from the business in 2000, due to ill health. Upon her return she decided she would focus on management accounting and Sage accounts support, which would enable her to be more office based.
Rebecca - Sage Training Consultant & Technical Support
Rebecca has been providing training to Sage users since 2000.
She started working part-time with Gaynor at the age of 17, doing bookkeeping and payroll. She went onto study at university and explored a career in management before realising accountancy and training was her vocation in life. She studied AAT and spent time working in practice.
Rebecca has worked with Gaynor and Charlie since 2000, providing Sage Training. In 2007 she joined the Sage Accounts Solutions team and in 2012 became a Director of the Company. She lives in Cambridge and travels around East Anglia, London and the South East to visit clients onsite. She specialises in both Sage 50 Accounts and Sage 50 Payroll, and has become our ‘go-to’ consultant on matters to do with the Sage Pension Module and Auto Enrolment.
She enjoys project management and system implementation – helping clients make the move to Sage from other packages and integrating third party systems with Sage. She frequently writes Sage user guides for clients, so that they can use them as a point of reference whilst they get to grips with the program.
Rebecca enjoys projects which help clients implement business solutions specific to their needs.
She is Accredited by Sage UK on all aspects of Sage Accounts and Payroll and trained to a semi-technical level, so is able to complete network and standalone installations, if required.
