Sage updates to Version 24! What’s new?

On Friday 22nd September we launched our new partnership with Sage and celebrated this with an event at our offices

We had Ian and Nick from Sage Head Office come down to show us who Sage are, where they are heading and how they now compare to other services out there.

There are many exciting new developments occurring and it is clear how they are passionate about the consumer’s opinions and needs and are responding effectively to make a difference.

An interesting and important detail to note is with regards to the changes to the HMRC Gateway next April.  The only version of Sage that will allow you to automatically upload your VAT returns will be Version 24.  Of course, returns can be uploaded manually when using older versions.  It just all depends on the method that would make life easier when the time comes next April.  Speak to us if you need further clarification and help with this.

Other changes include:

  • Go-Cardless Direct Debits
  • New Bank Feeds Rules
  • Function to hide inactive nominal records
  • Excluding DD suppliers from the suggested payments screen
  • Compliance changes with SagePay Protocol and HMRC Gateway

We are more than happy to discuss all of your needs and queries regarding upgrading your Sage software and training.  If you’d like more information then please email or give us a call on 01827 31 22 78.
