There are many features that have been included in Sage since Sage
50 2009. I believe that the number of new features make it a worthwhile
upgrade. It is certified to be compatible with Microsoft’s 64bit Windows 7

From a support perspective, it is much easier to support a common
version, and reports written using the latest version may not run correctly
with older versions. We have been running the new version in-house, and I
have been pleased with the new features, speed improvements and general
performance of this version.
The current list prices for a Sage 50 upgrade are as follows:
Sage 50 Accounts Professional: $1,733 + $17
freight + GST.
Sage 50 Accounts Plus: $1,313 + $17 freight +
Sage 50 Accounts: $914 + $17 freight + GST.
