With every release of Sage comes a list of exciting new features to match. Sure enough, version 25 of Sage 50 arrives accompanied by an array of beneficial add-ons for users.

Here, we take a look at them in closer detail.


You’ve undoubtedly heard about Making Tax Digital (MTD) by now.

This is a new initiative being introduced by the government from April 2019, whereby any business with a turnover above the VAT threshold (£85,000 as of 2018/19) must process tax returns and maintain records in a digital format. For these companies, VAT returns will no longer be possible through traditional means such as via a postal delivery service.

The latest updates as part of Sage 50 v25 are designed so that you can submit your VAT returns in line with the new rules and regulations. Now, thanks to this version of Sage, you won’t have to worry about processing your tax correctly – with the system set up to make returns under MTD quick, easy and uncomplicated.

If you do not wish to upgrade your version of Sage 50, we have an alternative VAT MTD solution. This allows you to be compliant with the new VAT return filing regime and keep your current version of Sage 50.

Robust security is paramount when it comes to accounting, especially as managing your finances involves dealing with precious data that you need to protect from hidden threats.

With v25 of Sage 50, you get added peace of mind. This new release offers the ability to request a full data check and backup whenever you want, even whilst other users are logged into the system.

There’s also a new approvals process in place, which provides increased control when it comes to user postings.
