4 Accounting made easy We ve done everything we can to make the day-today running of your business as easy as possible. From the moment you start using Sage 50 Accounts, you'll automatically feel more confident. Process maps will guide you easily through the sales and purchase order procedures, explaining what you need to do and in what order. We ve focused on features that help to keep your business organised. Features that let you know exactly what needs to be done and by when, and that allow you to get it done as quickly and easily as possible. We ve also made it easy for you to see at a glance all the information you need to know your business inside out, and keep your cash flow as healthy as possible.
5 Working with customers and suppliers Sage 50 Accounts has been designed to help ensure that you ll always get paid on time. We ve included a range of features to help with chasing debt and collecting money from customers, as well as features to make paying your suppliers easier too. In fact, it really has everything your business needs to keep your cash flow healthy, and your customer and supplier relationships as strong as possible.
6 Pay on time and be paid on time Keep your business breathing with our chase debt feature Cash flow is the lifeblood of any business. Always know who you should be spending time chasing for payments; for example what s overdue, and who has promised payment. Promised payments are automatically added to the diary and if payments are not received, you ll be reminded to follow them up. Keep your supplier relationships healthy as well You can see who you need to pay based on supplier and age criteria. So you can see what payment commitments you ll need to make in the coming weeks and months, helping you plan ahead.
7 Know what needs to be done Clear your mind with our in-built diary Every business has daily tasks. Did I remember to make that follow up call? When do I need to pay my suppliers? Our in-built diary helps prioritise the daily workload, sets reminders for recurring tasks, automates diary events (such as following up promised payments) and integrates with Microsoft Outlook. You can also link your tasks to your contacts, so you have all the details you need right there and then.
8 Make things easier for customers Let customers know what they owe with deposit managing You need to know who owes you money. Whether you re taking payments before you confirm an order, or at the point of sale, your customers can see at a glance what they owe and by when. Just one more feature to take the hassle out of chasing payments, keeping your cash flow healthy and your business breathing. Keep track of your discounts with discount management A little goodwill is good for business. Percentage discounts and one-off reductions are a great way to build your customer relationships, and they can be calculated on the total value of your invoices or orders. So you can keep track of every incentive you offer and know just how much they re costing you.
9 Build strong relationships Give the right person the right message on time, every time It s important to know your contacts. Different people like to be contacted at different times in different ways. That s why you can record and store names, telephone numbers, addresses, office addresses, preferred contact times and mailing preferences for all of your contacts, all in one place. And when you make invoice, letter and statement runs, you can be sure that the documents have been sent to the correct person, ensuring action will be taken quickly. Flexible payment methods to keep your customers and supplier relationships strong Everybody likes the freedom of choice. Your suppliers might insist on being paid in different ways. That s why you can do a cheque run for all suppliers who like to be paid this way, or an e-payment run for those who want BACS payments. With Sage Payments Solution*, your customers will have an easier way to pay as well - directly by card. This can be done over the phone or even online. * Additional charge applies
10 Working with your accounts Sage 50 Accounts recognises that keeping records of your basic transaction details, and getting them right, is crucial for your business. But working with columns and figures can be complicated, which is why Sage 50 Accounts helps to make this information as easy to understand as possible. Bank balances, month and year end obligations, VAT returns and business reports - you ll find all the management information you need to sort your accounts in no time.
11 VAT made simple Do VAT returns quickly and easily with VAT management Nobody likes doing VAT returns. Sage 50 Accounts has all the tools you need to prepare, generate and reconcile your VAT returns all in one place, and make sure that you re doing it correctly. Adjustments are easy too - you can record the amount, together with the reasons for each adjustment, to help you and your accountant reconcile the changes. Perfect when facing inspections from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). Do things by the book with HMRC recognised VAT e-submissions Sage 50 Accounts has been fully tested and has achieved recognition for filing VAT returns to HMRC. So you can send all of your information online by e-submission - something that will be mandatory from You will also have complete peace of mind knowing that you re recording and submitting the information accurately and securely.
12 Working with your bank balance Handle your transactions fluidly with bank reconciliation Bank reconciliation is easy - simply enter payments and receipts and match bank transactions against those on your bank statement. You can see at a glance the transactions that have been matched to the statement and those that remain. e-bank Reconciliation also means that all your transactions in Sage 50 Accounts are reconciled with your banking software. You can even download a bank statement and automatically reconcile payments and receipts against both statements. Keep your software as fresh as your business, with automatic updates You want your software to perform to the highest possible standard. Our automatic updates feature lets you know if there s anything you need to make your software more efficient, and quickly updates it for you.
13 See your finances clearly Track the flow of your money with our dashboard It s important to know your financial position. Our dashboard lets you see an instant view of the credit position of your business. You can see where your money is, how old your customer or supplier debt is, what s due, what s overdue, what s disputed, what s promised to pay and what s still to be allocated all in one place.
14 Reports made flexible You need to be able to view your business information the way you want to Sage 50 Accounts provides you with a suite of essential management reports which are designed to give you greater control over your business performance and profitability. The flexibility to view your reports the way you want to see them isn t just a luxury, it s often a necessity. If you need to see more than just your monthly figures in your Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet reports, Sage 50 Accounts lets you view them month-by-month, quarter-byquarter or year-on-year, all in the same report. We ve also included pre-defined reports to help you analyse what s going on in your business, but these are flexible too. When looking for specific information, you can choose what you want to compare based on the factors that are most important to your business. So you ll be able to make more informed business decisions. Reports to suit everyone s needs You can create or amend any report to meet your exact requirements.
15 Make everything work together So many reports need to be run on a regular basis Our batch reporting feature allows you create your own batches of reports and run them off all in one go - whether that s as Excel (XLS), PDF or files, printed documents, or just previews. So no report will ever get missed. You can also continue to work on Sage 50 Accounts while the reports are running, time you could use to make a call to chase money. Integrate Sage 50 Accounts with Microsoft Office Sage 50 Accounts comes with Excel Integrated Reporting, which means that you can link Microsoft Excel directly to your accounts data. So other people in your business can access and analyse accounts information without needing to use the software themselves. Sage 50 Accounts also works seamlessly with other Microsoft Office software, such as Outlook and Word, allowing true integration across all of the software you use every day.
16 Do business anywhere Handle foreign currency professionally There may be times when your business needs to handle different currencies, which is why Sage 50 Accounts allows you to process transactions in all the major ones. So you can produce invoices, credit notes, sales and purchase orders and make and receive payments in different currency. You ll also be able to maintain foreign currency price lists, handle exchange rate fluctuations, and comply with all the legislation required regarding VAT. So you ll have everything you need to do business abroad.
17 Department management made simple See a clear view of department performance with advanced budget management If you run several departments, you can monitor their performance closely and efficiently. Whatever you use your departments for you can identify the most profitable, most cost effective, best and worst performing departments on a month by month basis. There s no need to generate reports to view budgets or department performances, and it s also easy to manage transition into the new financial year. Our assistance feature means you can quickly learn all the features of Sage 50 Accounts with ease. There s also a library of videos to guide you through them, and you can try out a new area of the software or a new posting with our practice feature first.
18 Working with your products and services Whatever type of business you run and whatever it has to offer, handling your products is an essential part of your day-to-day tasks. Holding too much stock can be expensive but, on the other hand, you don't want to run out of stock. So be sure to give yourself a little extra help when it comes to what you have coming in, what you have going out, and what s already been sent off.
19 Manage stock with ease Be in control with an accurate and efficient system With our range of Sage 50 Accounts software you can choose the level of stock control you need. With each variant you can easily create product records, review product activities and analyse monthly sales values and qualities sold. Never have to let down your customers. If you need a greater level of stock control then the Sales Order Processing and Sales Order Fulfilment features in Sage 50 Accounts Professional allow you to create orders, allocate stock, despatch stock and produce delivery notes. If you are low on stock then you will be informed and a purchase order will be automatically generated. The Purchase Order Processing allows you to create an order, put on-order and then record delivery of the stock.
