How to Install

You will be prompted to upgrade your software via the usual methods i.e. email and/or Auto Update. However, before you install the latest version we would recommend contacting us if any of the following relates to you.

  • Your business uses Sage 50 Manufacturing.
  • Your running v28 or below of Sage 50 Accounts.

As you may already be aware, there has been circumstances that have arisen from recent software releases. Customers who are still running Sage 50 Manufacturing will be unable to upgrade to v28 of Sage 50 Accounts due to compatibility issues. 

Our recommendation would be to migrate to Cim50 Manufacturing, which is fully compatible with Sage 50cloud Accounts v28.1 and Windows 11. We would strongly advise not upgrading your Sage 50 Accounts system whilst you are still using Sage 50 Manufacturing.

If you wish to upgrade to the latest version of Sage 50 Accounts, please contact us to discuss options for upgrading.
