Important Notice

If you are using Desktop software as your accounting solution this is likely to affect you.

Sage has announced that from 30th September 2022 you will not be able to access your data if you are using version 26.2 (v2020) or below.  In order to access your data after this date, you will have to upgrade to the latest version (no doubt at a considerable monthly cost).

Furthermore, remote data access for Sage 50 Accounts and Sage 50cloud Accounts for version 26.2 (v2020) has now been switched off. This means that you can no longer use these programs remotely, without purchasing the upgrade.

QuickBooks have also announced that they are discontinuing their desktop software altogether from 1st February 2023 and are pushing as many of their users as possible onto their online solution.

Both companies offer online products and there are plenty of other providers, which are considerably cheaper than the desktop software subscriptions.

Is now the time to make the switch to an online solution?

We are here to help you review your situation and advise on the best course of action.
