The latest release (v22) is due for Sage 50 Accounts in the next few weeks and will include a number of updates including the ability to use bank feeds.

Bank feeds are a quick and easy way to record your transactions and reconcile your bank all in one go. After you link your bank to Sage 50 v22, your banking transactions will automatically be imported into your accounts. You will only have to assign your customer/supplier accounts, nominal codes and VAT codes and you’re good to go.

The more transactions you import, the easier it becomes to use. The software will begin to recognise similar transactions and will pre-empt and prepopulate those details, so bookkeeping will become a validation rather than a data entry process.

Sage 50 – end of life

From April 2015, Sage will begin withdrawing support for customers currently using Sage 50 v2011, v2012 or v2013 software for Instant Accounts, Sage 50 Accounts and Sage 50 Payroll.

This is standard practice in order to focus on new technology and legislation.

This means that Sage will be withdrawing updates and general support for your software. Additionally, your software will become non-compliant with legislation and may face compatibility issues with other software.

If you are currently using Sage 50 v2011, v2012 or v2013, you will receive communication from Sage outlining the details and notifying you about the withdrawal of updates and support.

We recommend you upgrade to the latest version of Sage 50. You have the choice to move to Sage 50 on monthly subscription, ensuring you always remain up to date with legislation and software updates and to avoid compatibility or other software issues.

As accredited Sage Accountant Partners, we are able to offer great discounts on Sage RRP – contact our Sage Solutions team to find out more.
