If you are transferring your existing accounting records from another accounting system into your MYOB software for the first time, after adding your inventory items into the software you will also need to enter the beginning balance of each item of inventory.
MYOB has released updates to its eponymous accounting packages - Business Basics, Accounting, and Accounting Plus. ICAEW certified, they provide the essentials for any accounting package: cashbooks, job costing and invoicing, and debtor ageing.
Accounting adds a to-do list, stock control, MS Office integration, and payroll handling, while the Accounting Plus package, which we looked at, offers multi-user cross-platform access, client-based time billing, and multi-currency accounting.
Given that you are used to and comfortable with using the Sage version that you have, 'phone round a few local firms of accountants to find out which have the ability to work with this particular version. Then get an annual fee quote from them and compare it to existing fee plus extra costs of getting version of Sage 50 that existing adviser demands.
As for the compatibility: newer versions can read older versions fine, the same is not true about older versions reading newer versions. One would think that they would have sorted out that by now...I mean they have only been providing accounting software for one or two or many years....but no such luck.This was confirmed by Sage themselves as well as quiet a few local practices around where we operate.
Thank you to all that contributed with their answers, even @Missaccounting (p.s. I don't know who Katie is, nor do I care. I asked a genuine question and with the exception of you, every single contribution gave some insightful knowledge...I'll let you do the math(s)!
I was merely asking a question which nobody was under any obligation to answer. To those that answered I am very thankful. What information I myself managed to find, I shared for the benefit of others who may find themselves in the same position...and to my understanding that is the exact point of this community, to help one another.She can know a 1000 times more than I know about computer accounting, it doesn't change the fact that she was rude, and I am not very keen on bullies such as her or yourself.What is this, you don't know anything and we all know it all hence you are worthless and so is your opinion? Well excuse me for wanting to educate myself and for being keen on taking advice from those who may have been in the same position themselves, in a section called Questions and Answers! 2b1af7f3a8
