Sage Business Cloud | Accounting, (formerly known as Sage One)'s version available in Canada, now has most of the features of Sage 50's Pro edition. This means a lot more flexibility for the small business builder and entrepreneur.
A new migration tool is currently being tested that will make it easier to migrate from Sage 50 CA to Sage | Accounting!
Note: You no longer need to be subscribed to a Sage 50cloud subscription to be able to map your chart of accounts. If your plan is to move from Sage 50 CA to just using Sage | Accounting, simply set up the NEW migration tool to move data.See our latest post dated 02/27/2019 here.

You can always switch back and forth between English and French by clicking on the language option in the bottom left corner of the screen. This will change everything to French except the Chart of Accounts. If you wanted to have the Chart of Accounts in French, you would need to register a new account following the French sign up.
Step 1: Activate your Sage One Accounting license that comes with Sage 50C (see KB 70976)
Step 2: Set up your Sage One account, ensure that you select Sage One Accounting.
Step 3 -*Useful Tip: Before getting started, print off a list of your chart of accounts by going to:
From Sage 50 on the left under File > Sage One > Setup Sage One connection.
The manual setup will give you an option to remove Sage One accounts. If you desire to remove Sage One accounts, note that key Sage One linked accounts cannot be removed. Your next best option is to map them manually to similar Sage 50 accounts, though you may have to leave them blank if they are linked in Sage 50 (risk messing up reports by unlinking).
Push Sage 50 account numbers and names to Sage One by clicking the "Upload Sage 50 Accounts to Sage One" button.
You'll see a screen like this as it uploads.
Once done, press Ok and then review. You can leave linked accounts such as Accounts Receivable, Inventory and COGS blank.
Fill in all missing Sage 50 Accounts. There shouldn't be any duplicate accounts.
Some accounts may still need to be mapped.
