FAQs

Sage 50 is reliable desktop accounting software connected to the cloud with powerful finance features to help small businesses work more efficiently. 

It makes automating your construction small business finances easy with features like expense and payment tracking, invoicing, and remote access. It’s easy to use and setup to immediately save you time, improve cash flow, and get you paid faster.

  1. Minimum one-year commitment required. Valid credit card and Internet access are required to activate and maintain support and services. To ensure continuous service, your Sage Business Care plan is an automatically renewing plan, and you will be charged up to a week prior to your renewal date. The subscription plan is an annual subscription with a lease to the software license; therefore, you can only use the software while you are on the plan. You may terminate your subscription plan with thirty (30) days advance notice to Sage and receive a pro-rated refund. However, if you terminate your subscription plan or if your subscription payment is not received, you will have read-only access to your data, and full program functionality will not be restored until you have brought your account current. The subscription plan requires that you be on the most current version of the software to continue your subscription.
