    👉 Frequently Asked Questions

    Q 1.  What do I need to make sure before Migrating Sage 50 Data?

    Ans : Before migrating, choose a date for your data to be migrated, ensure your data is updated, and make a backup. CSV files may be used to export customer, supplier, and product records. Opening balances for your clients and suppliers are also exported.

    Before you transfer your data, double-check that Accounting is configured appropriately. You must load the chart of accounts from such a CSV file before performing any other modifications in Sage Accounting if you wish to use the same chart of accounts.

    Q 2. What VAT related information should I keep in check when Migrating Data to or from Sage 50?

    Ans : VAT Cash Accounting is a type of VAT plan that uses a flat rate of VAT. The VAT rate is set to No VAT for VAT-registered Eu markets, vendors, or connections outside the EU, and the gross amount displays in the Net and Total columns.

    It’s because VAT on such actions is accounted for when the invoice is created, not when the payment is received or made.

    Manually amend your next VAT Return to incorporate the essential data if you haven’t yet compensated for VAT in Sage 50 or Instant. Your tax codes are linked with others in Sage Accounting seamlessly.

    Change the VAT rate for the appropriate transaction if you’ve changed the tax codes in Sage 50 and Instant.

    Q 3. When Do I need to Change Imported Opening Balances?

    Ans : Your balance sheet in Sage Accounting may vary from your financial statement in Sage 50 or Instant if you modify any numbers while importing opening balances.

    Choose how to transfer the discrepancy when inputting your nominal opening balances. You might, for example, send it to Corrections.
