    For Accounts Production i'd say it would be Sage Accounts Production. Not sure what it would be for bookkeeping maybe Tas Books but i would definately reccommend Big Red Book. Theraraus and Collsoft pretty common for wages

    thanks for that.

    so what would be the best overall package to learn?

    Or if it is for a small businrss you could try Quicken. Depends really how technical you want to get. If you are doing full accounts you will have a bit of research to do to get the one tha suits you best.

    Hi,
    Are you looking to learn in order to do accounts in an accountants practice or up to trial balance / p&l / balance sheet stage?

    For accounts production the most common products used by accountants would include Sage Accounts production or Relate's Drive. Micropay would be a popular payroll one.

    For learning accounts for book keeping / working in accounts for a company I would go for Sage Line 50 or Tas Books 2 as they are the most common you will come across when peopel are looking for someone to do books. You can buy specialist multi company / book keeper versions if you are lookign to do book keeping yourself for people.

    I would go for Sage line 50 in that case or TAS Books 2. If you have look on the recruitment sites, adds for accounts people often ask for Sage experience. The Sage Line 50 is used for book keeping and accounts and then Sage accounts production is the product an accountant would use to prepare final accounts, B1s etc. You can get a workbook that will teach you how to use Sage Line 50
