Making the move to Liquid as seamless as possible

The decision to move away from an on-premise accounting package you’re so used to isn’t easy…

So Liquid decided to provide a way to make the transition as seamless and stress-free as possible.

Liquid - easing the transition from Sage 50 and other legacy desktop accounting software to the Cloud

Here are a few reasons why Liquid is the most cost effective accounting software to choose when upgrading to the cloud from Sage 50 and other legacy desktop software…

Why should i move?

If the Covid 19 pandemic has shown us anything, being prepared for every eventuality is essential.
Hosting your accounting software fully in the cloud means that you and any of your colleagues can have access to it, wherever you are, on any device that has a browser and an internet connection.
Don't put up with half measures - Liquid will give you a 100% cloud accounting experience, including desktop matching speed, all updates, data backups and a personal service experience that few of our competitors can match.

We will guide you through the process from start to finish

Changing accounting software is never easy, and we will dedicate a specialist Consultant to hand hold you through the move to Liquid.
They will deal with capturing your specific needs, converting your Sage 50 or other product data for use in Liquid, setting up your nominal structure (Sage 50 nominal structure available if you want to use it), training you and your colleagues, and dealing with your questions when you first start using the software.
You will also have an account manager you can speak to at any time.

Option of Sage 50 nominal code structure

We understand you know the nominal code structure in Sage 50, so we're not going to force you to use a new one - it's available to use as an option within Liquid Accounts.

Liquid has it's own Nominal Code structure should you want an alternative, which is easily editable to your own requirements.

Historical data conversion

We can convert a lot of your old Sage 50 data, including customers, suppliers, payments, opening balances, orders, etc.

Call us on 0161 413 5050 to discuss what you need to move and we will give you an honest appraisal of what can be achieved.

Built-in, optional advanced modules

Whatever you need now or in the future, Liquid can provide. Powerful features include a full, 5 level, segmented Ledger, Advanced Stock, Bill of Materials, Company Consolidation module, and E-commerce integrations with platforms such as Shopify, Magento, PayPal.

Established in 2005, we have a long history in Cloud accounting

We've been around long enough to know the industry intimately and to allow us to understand our customers specific needs.

Moving from Sage 50 to Liquid Accounts - a case study.

Don't just take our word for it - hear it from a happy customer.

Established in 1982, Comtec Presentations have an unrivalled history in providing marketing solutions to an exceptional range of clients.  From multinational corporations to political parties, including educational institutions, they have helped arrange the biggest and the best to deliver their messages with clarity, flair and precision.

To support the business in delivering the best possible service and results, Comtec relies upon its business management software to ensure that the finances are under control. For many years, this was done using Sage 50, the perennial desktop accounting package that has been a feature of British businesses for many years.

However, the business felt it was time to move on and modernise their accounting and finance procedures to better match how the team were now working, and Liquid was considered as a Sage 50 replacement.

One of the main drivers of wanting to move to cloud accounting software was the freedom of using the software wherever it was needed, and it not being an on-premise package as Anne, the finance manager, does not attend the office every day and needs to use the software wherever she happens to be at any given time.

Liquid provides her with this, as it is 100% cloud and simply requires an internet connection and a browser to access, with no need to install or register any software.

Critically, they had experienced some data corruption issues with Sage 50, and as it was approaching their new financial year, they wanted a clean start in a fresh new system ready for the start of their new fiscal year.

Changing accounting software is never easy, and there are days when Anne looks back on Sage 50 with some fondness, but the benefits that Liquid provide for a more flexible, variable working life more than make up for any loss of familiarity.

Case study - Beacon Heating & Boiler Supplies Ltd

Upgrading from Pastel to Liquid, the easy way

Established in September 2005, B.H.B.S is an independent plumbing and heating merchant serving Surrey, Hants and Sussex.

They had been happy users of Pastel software during that time and have recently upgraded to Liquid Cloud Accounts.

The business is run by Steve, the Managing Director, and four core staff members.

As independent plumbers’ merchants, the staff use the software mainly for stock control, purchase orders, goods received and payments in and out.

Steve’s main reasons for upgrading to Liquid included…

  • ease of access from anywhere he and his team needed to work
  • feature fit – it did what he needed to run his business well
  • no need for an expensive network and the maintenance overhead that entails
  • Steve and a new member of staff work from home

The transfer over to Liquid was painless – their old Pastel data was migrated to Liquid and they were ready to work from day one, once training had been provided.

An important side benefit of upgrading from desktop software to Liquid Cloud Accounts is that Steve no longer needs to worry if they remembered to do the back up and they are no longer faced with costly annual upgrades.

Why Do Businesses Choose
Liquid For Their Accounting Software

Just a few of the benefits of moving to Liquid from Sage 50 and any other legacy desktop accounting software package, acquiring a more cost effective cloud solution along the way.

A true, 100% cloud solution

Unlike legacy desktop software, Liquid is a full cloud accounting software package that is available to you wherever you need to work, without the need for installation, registering and updating of software. All servers are located in Manchester, UK at UKFast's server centre.

Always improving, almost invisibly

Liquid is continuously improved by our development team, taking customer feedback into consideration. You will hardly notice the upgrades happening - we handle all of this for you!

No expensive subscription charges

Our pricing is completely transparent and extremely good value for money, starting at £60 per month - is your current providers?

Reduce your IT workload

On-premise, or desktop software requires that you install, register, update and backup your accounting application regularly - Liquid will relieve you of this burden.

Plus you'll be assured that we are continually backing up your data on our servers - so you don't have to!

Making Tax Digital included

Full support for Making Tax Digital for VAT is included in the price - we also support the "old" VAT filing system for businesses that do not need to move to MTD. As MTD progresses, and affects more areas of taxation, we will ensure that the software is enhanced to cope with any changes, ensuring your business remains compliant.

Cloud Payroll available

Liquid Payroll partners seamlessly with Liquid Accounts, smoothly integrating so that whenever you pay your staff, Liquid Accounts is updated automatically. All the features you are used to in your desktop payroll software are present in Liquid Payroll, and you can forget about updates, registration, disaster recovery licences, data backups, as we deal with all of this for you.

Liquid CIS - construction industry scheme ready

Available as an option within Liquid Payroll and allows you to run basic CIS with full online verification and submissions. Liquid CIS is quick and easy to set up, simple to use and is very competitively priced. It comes with Online Verifications built in, so requests are submitted online through the program to determine the tax status of a new subcontractor either individually or as a batch. Liquid CIS then calculates the amount of deduction to be made from each subcontractor to enable the online submission of the CIS300 at the end of each tax month.

More personal support

We are not a large corporate business, and this means we can offer you a far more personal and responsive service than some of our larger competitors.
Should you need assistance with Liquid software, we have a team of UK based experienced technicians who will answer your queries via phone, web or email.
There are no long waiting times when you need to speak to a Support Consultant, and the team is staffed by product experts who have access to the developers to ensure speedy resolution of problems.

Bespoke software, to your specific needs

Whilst most off the shelf accounting software products offer a limited degree of customisation, we designed Liquid from the ground up so that it could cope with a high degree of customisation and bespoking to the customers specific needs.

Tell us what you are looking for and we will design and build it for you at a great price.
