Sage Business Care Upgrade
As part of your Sage Business Care plan, you get an upgrade to Sage 50 Accounting (released fall 2013). We encourage you to read about What's New to learn about the features and additions that you can take advantage of!
Your upgrade to Sage 50 Accounting:
When will I receive my upgrade notification?
The upgrade will be available in the middle of October, 2013. We have changed our annual upgrade process to be similar to the product update process that you are already familiar with. This change will make it easier for you to get and install product updates to your software going forward.
You will no longer need to manually download the file and enter a new Serial Number and Key Code (Activation Key) and Payroll ID. This will be done automatically for you. However, as a back-up, we will forward you your account information and the download location of the product update file later in October.
How do I receive upgrade to Sage 50 Accounting?
In order to upgrade to new functionality, you must have installed the Product Update 2013.3 released June 2013, be connected to the Internet and be on a current Sage Business Care plan.
To view which version of Sage 50 you are running, choose the Help menu option and select the “About Sage 50” option. If you are not on the 2013.3 release, please select “Check for Product Updates” and follow the instructions.
The product update will download in the background and you will be prompted to install the new update when you shut down your computer. We recommend that you do this as soon as possible in order to always be working on current software. The update will be available in the middle of October, 2013.
Important Note: Do not uninstall your previous version of Sage 50 Accounting.
Will I receive a CD?
If you have paid the annual fee1 to receive a CD in the mail, your CD will begin shipping the week of October 7th. Please allow 5-10 business days for delivery. You will receive a shipping notification email from Sage once your product is in the mail. If you did not pay for this service, your product will only be made available to you via download.
What if I want my new Serial Number and Key code to keep on file?
This information along with the file download location will be sent to you later in October so that you can keep this for your records.
