Sage Users May Need to Upgrade

HMRC’s roll-out of compulsory on-line VAT returns and payments (Lewis Smith & Co. News 17/09/09) may impact businesses using older versions of Sage finance software.

The latest versions have a direct interface with the HMRC but if you have an older version then you will have to use the HMRC website to enter information and make payments. This is inconvenient rather than being a “show stopper” but it may signal a good time to upgrade your software and get the benefits of the latest version.

If you are not sure what version of Sage you are using or whether you should upgrade then contact us today. As members of the Sage Accountants Club, Lewis Smith & Co. has a licence to provide first line support on Sage systems and we have access to full technical support from the supplier if needed.
