Sage 50 has now been replaced by Sage 50cloud. Sage 50cloud is simply the latest version of Sage 50, and runs locally on your computer exactly as Sage 50 does. It just adds (optional) integration with Microsoft Office 365 to give you improved access to your accounts data via the cloud when you’re out and about.
What is Sage 50?
Sage 50 is a market-leading accounts software package within the UK and Ireland, suited to small to medium sized manager-owned businesses and similarly sized not-for-profits.
In terms of product complexity, Sage 50 sits above Sage One and Instant Accounts but below Sage 200 within the Sage product family. Sage 50 comes in three variants (Accounts, Accounts Plus and Accounts Professional) with additional features as you go up through the range: if you have more than 2 users, trade in foreign currencies or buying and selling stock then you’d need Accounts Professional.
