Introducing the new features on Sage 50 Accounts 2017 (v23)
The September 2016 Improvements for Sage 50 Accounts update includes some great new features, including:
Negative lines allowable on Sales Service Invoices
When raising service sales invoices (not via the batch invoice screen) a negative line can now be added (to apply a discount say) by ticking a box asking it to be made negative.
Due Date Field added
When entering customer or supplier invoices, there is now a Due Date box. This will be filled in automatically if the customer or supplier record is set up with it, but it can be over-ridden. This also appears when entering invoices on the batch invoice screens.
Entering Bank Payments and Receipts whilst entering Invoices
When entering sales and purchase invoices on the batch screens, additional boxes now appear that allow you to enter the bank receipt and bank payment should you know the transaction has been paid. It allows you to enter the bank account, the payment date and give it a reference (such as BACS or D/D)
Viewing Transactions in more detail
In the Customer, Supplier, Bank and Nominal screens, there is a new drill down feature that allows you to view the original transaction posted. There is a ‘view transaction’ button on the toolbar on these screens. You can view the original transaction posted, but it cannot be edited.
A scheduled backup can be asked to save to a specific folder now on a drive (whether that be the C drive of the machine or to a removable device) as opposed to just the C Drive or the G Drive. There is an edit folder button which then allows you to enter the folder location.
