Single European Payments Area (SEPA)

On 31st October 2016, payment service providers in non-euro countries, including the UK, will only be able to collect Euro-denominated payments using SEPA procedures.

 

To allow the Sage Line 500 and Sage ERP 1000 Products to take advantage of this new functionality, a Desktop application has been written that creates both SEPA Credit Transfers and SEPA Direct Debits.

 

This Application connects to all versions of Line 500 and Sage ERP 1000 and creates an XML Output file that complies with the SEPA Template (ISO 20022).

 

Please contact us to enquire about the SEPA payments.

VAT: Prompt payments discounts (PPD) Legislation Changes

VAT: Prompt Payments Discount (PPD) Legislation Changes April 2015

From 1st April 2015, businesses must account for VAT on the full consideration received for supplies of goods and services. Therefore invoices must calculate VAT with no reduction for Prompt Payments Discounts (PPD).

Where a discount is subsequently taken, it is therefore necessary to ensure VAT records are amended to reflect the lower VAT amount.

Currently where businesses offerPPD termsto customers, they calculate the VAT due on the discounted price. If the discount is not taken up, HMRC does not require businesses to alter the amount of VAT invoice and accounted for.  

Full details will be found in the attached document. For further information from Revenue and Customs please click here. 

Please contact your consultant to discuss the implications for your version of Sage ERP system and your company.

Sage ERP 1000 v4 service pack 4 is released.

Visit the Sage Website

Service Pack 4 was released on 24th October. This Service Pack now supports Java 7 update 71 and Windows 2012 R2.

 

This year marked the last Payroll Year End for the Sage ERP 1000 and Line 500 products and the process of migrating customers from these products to Sage 50 is on going. The last update provided a Payroll Year End pack which ensures that the module is L&F compliant for the 2014/2015 tax year. However, from 6th April 2015 we are unable to guarantee the compliance of this module and therefore support will be removed.

On Tuesday 18th November the latest version of Sage 50 Payroll (v21) was made available to all our customers who have migrated from the Line 500 or Sage ERP 1000 Payroll Module. This will be made available via the Automatic Updates functionality in Sage 50 Payroll.
