Sage 50c Accounts Software Update version 24 went on general release on Monday 18th September 2017.  As with every year, Sage continue to innovate and update their software and the release of Sage 50c v24 is no different.  There are the normal improvements to the software and ironing out niggles customers have experienced in Version 23.

Sage 50c Accounts v24 New and Improved Functionality

  • Enhanced Bank Feeds
    • This version introduces data matching rules for its users
      • Create and amend rules
      • View and approve transactions automatically generated based on the user created rules.
  • Hide nominal and bank accounts
    • v24 allows you to hide nominal and bank accounts from list screens and reports.
      • Just as easily as you can make your Customers inactive, v24 now has the option to make your bank accounts and nominal codes inactive which then gives you the option to hide them from view.
  • Go-Cardless integration
    • Sage 50c Accounts Version 24, is now integrated with GoCardless, a direct debit company.  Whilst at the moment BACS and Faster Paying Service payments remain the key method for paying suppliers, it is estimated that the Direct Debit collection for consumer payments will grow 50% by the year 2025 (see report by UK Payment regarding UK payment forecasts and trends).  Accordingly, businesses who collect payments by Direct Debit are already ahead of this curve.  If customers are using the GoCardless platform for these payments, they can now have integration with this system and their Sage 50c Accounts software.
  • Improved payment runs which now exclude direct debit payments
    • This version draws up the list of cheque and bank transfer payments to be generated by the software, by default suppliers will be excluded and marked to indicate that payments are made by direct debit.

There are two very important HMRC changes heading your way.


In February 2018 HMRC (EDI) Gateway will be decommissioned

Q. What does this mean for me.

A. All versions of Sage Accounts Software prior to v24 will no longer be able to submit your VAT returns direct from your software but instead you will be required to log in to your Government gateway account and type in your figures manually.

Also, have you heard about the Governments plans on Making Tax Digital, if not find out more here.

The latest version of Sage 50c Accounts will be compliant with the new HMRC gateway.  To this end Sage have updated this latest release to ensure that their software is compliant and by using the software users are hopefully eliminating the risk tax miscalculation created by manual input!
