Enhance productivity with simple but powerful key features of Sage 50

Simple, easy-to-use features for handling some of the most important aspects of your business—your time and your money.

Cash flow and invoicing

Cash Flow Manager is a powerful invoicing system that gives you an instant snapshot of your cash flow. It shows you the balances of your cash accounts, cash expected to come in, and cash expected to go out. It gives you a clear picture of your finances when you need it.

Customize the cash flow settings to get a more granular view of your finances. Change the time frame to view by a particular period, or filter by type of transactions like invoices, quotes, and purchases. You can also add adjustment lines and amounts so you can forecast possible future income and expenses. Other features include:

  • 'Broadcast' invoices to many customers.
  • Create custom recurring invoices.
  • Get paid faster with online 'Pay now' functionality.

Payments & Banking

The accounts payable and banking features include purchase orders, invoices, payments, bank feeds, and account reconciliation. It's also fully integrated with the inventory management system. Automate any of these processes to eliminate manual entry.

Manage payments and connect to your bank feeds for full visibility of your accounts and finances. Eliminate manual data entry and simplify payment acceptances with automatic reconciliation. Screen reader support enabled.

Advanced inventory management

Know what's in stock and what's on order. View quantities on hand and stay on top of purchase orders. Use inventory items to easily enter transactions and track costs and quantities. 

Tracking inventory in Sage 50 is basically a three-step process: enter item information for sales account, inventory account, and cost of sales account.

Sage 50 then computes and tracks costs and quantities by item code daily, and adjusts inventory automatically each time you post a purchase or sale.

Job costing

Get greater insight into all your jobs and projects and know what you are spending and where. View how long your jobs and projects are taking to complete and estimate how much money you're making on each job.

Easily set up job records, phases, and cost codes. Track job costs through purchasing, inventory adjustment, payroll, and more. Print reports throughout a job's duration to find out the total amount spent and net revenues due for each job.

If you use phases or cost codes, you can generate reports to display this information, showing you if a job is over or under budget for any phase or task involved. This can help you control your costs by adjusting one phase or task prior to the job's completion.


Simplify payroll processes for your employees with direct deposit, paycards, or direct-deposit checks.1 Monitor employee records like payroll checks you process and the payroll taxes you collect from your employees.

Leverage the Payroll Setup Wizard and employee defaults to get up and running quickly on Sage Payroll. You can also perform advanced payroll tasks, like tracking employee tips and managing vacation and sick time hours.

If you have employees who enter time tickets for hours worked on projects, you can create paychecks based on the hours recorded on time tickets during a payroll period.
