Tuesday, 27 October, 4pm-5pm


Struggling to keep on top of your finances? Looking for a more efficient way to analyse your business’s financial health? Deciding which solution to go for can be challenging, especially when they (appear to) offer so many similar core features.


If you’re feeling confused and conflicted about which accounting software is better for your business, then worry no more. Our next ‘Versus’ webinar will tell all.

Which is the right one for your business? Sage or Xero?


In this live and interactive session, we put two leading accounting and bookkeeping giants in the ring to fight it out.

In the Sage corner we have the Owner of The Business Boutique, Celeste Summerton, who effortlessly moves across industries, giving ‘sage’ advice.


Always curious, Summerton is at the cutting edge of accounting and business, on and offline platform development and solutions.


In this ‘punch-up’, Summerton will convince us why Sage is the tried and tested winner when it comes to accounting software, and why she is passionate about Sage’s ability to deliver a truly innovative and world-class accounting solution for your business.

In the Xero corner we have Willem Haarhoff, CEO and co-founder of DoughGetters Accounting. Willem has built his business around doing beautiful digital business. He believes that things should be simple and straightforward. He has led large teams at one of the big four accounting firms. In March 2020, DoughGetters Accounting™ was awarded Emerging Firm of the Year by Xero South Africa.


In this session, Haarhoff will show you how Xero Accounting will help you eliminate unnecessary admin so that you can focus on growing your business your way – and why it should be your accounting platform of choice.
