Update: New look Bank Reconciliation

Improvements made to the calculator, making it more efficient and accurate 4.  Introducing a new concept of 'Pending' reconciliation. Users have the ability to tick ...


Update: Composing Email for Invoices

Following the upgrade of our email servers, the email of invoices now allows you to enter their own 'From' address rather than Liquid. This is the start of a process that will eventually be rolled out across all emails generated by the system. To use, once the email has been generated, a new field is shown: From - this defaults to the current Liquid address.  Altering this field will retain the address for future use.                


Sage 50 Hosted price hike prompts backlash

Sage has come under fire from AccountingWEB members for increasing the price of its hosted application by 56%. Sage 50 Accounts Hosted does what it says on the tin. In contrast to the much simpler Sage One, Sage 50 Accounts Hosted is based on the current version of the developer's flagship desktop accounting application and is marketed through the Sage Accountants' Club and the company's usual business partners. However a recent Any Answers post from Logika highlighted disquiet about a recent increase from £75 a month to £117 (plus VAT). Unfortunately for the AccountingWEB member, the rise was not shown immediately on Sage's website and the firm had quoted the lower £75 pricing to a client. Sage agreed to honour the lower price months, but ...
