Sage Business Cloud OR Sage 50

Hello everyone,

We've been using Sage Business Cloud for 9 months now - we're a startup company.

The 2 guys who started the company came from a Sage 50 background and the lack of Purchase Orders and customer-specific pricing (they say) is driving them nuts.

They want to move to Sage 50 - I'm not convinced.

I see quite a bit of advice/guidance/info re. moving FROM Sage 50 but nothing to help in moving TO Sage 50.

Is moving from Business Cloud to Sage 50 a retrograde step?

Any help/guidance/pointers/advice would be greatly appreciated.


  • Hi Robert,

    Obviously a lot depends on your processes and therefore requirements from there. If you would like a demo of Sage 50 and a chat around your processes and potential ongoing requirements give me a call on 01462 374073 or ping me an email [email protected] - I'll be happy to have a no obligation discussion. I'm a certified trainer in both Sage 50 Accounts and Business Cloud Accounting, so maybe a comparative training session would help your 2 guys?

    Kind regards,


  • I had moved on of our clients to Business Cloud from sage 50 and am now trying to move them back as I actually feel that Business Cloud is a step down from Sage 50. i had originally planned to move 3 clients from 50C to Business Cloud however two of them had to stay in Sage 50 as Business Cloud was not capable of coping with their account.
