Here is a list of the new features which have been added into Sage 50 Accounts in the 2011 version release:
New Flat Rate VAT Scheme in The UK
Sage 50 Accounts is now fully compliant with the new scheme which was introduced by HMRC.
You can now add customer receipts and refunds to a bank reconciliation in addition to processing refunds to amend records in the software. The familiar look of the interface as a standard bank statement also helps with the processing.
It’s now much easier to email particular documents and reports to people who do not have access to the software.
Sage Pay Integration
If you run an on-line internet shop which does not have integration capabilities with Sage Accounts, you can use Sage Pay for processing, then download the transactions from your pay account, directly into your accounting software.
Not For Profit Organisations
Charities can now produce P&L for each individual fund. There is also a chart of accounts available for charities, this includes all the nominal codes you are likely to need, you can of course add new nominals as you go along anyway.
You have various options in how you view your financial information and ledgers, these include a detailed list, the process map, so you can see what stage various transactions are at and the standard dashboard display. In addition your homepage in Sage 50 can be set to whichever screens and sections of the software you utilise most regularly, so when you open the program you are straight in the section you want.
The disputed items area of the program (in sage 50 accounts plus and professional only) will list the relevant customers can be selected from the chase debt screen.
All in all a few handy features which I expect many regular users will find very helpful indeed.
