Bank feeds FAQs

If you’re banking online then you can easily and securely make a connection between your bank and Sage 50 Accounts– this is called a bank feed. Transactions will automatically import into Sage 50 Accounts, doing all of your regular manual admin for you.

When you’ve connected to your bank feed, you can begin bank reconciliation.

Direct bank feed:
