Sage Instant Accounts 2012 and Sage 50 Accounts 2013 became end of life in April 2015. This means Sage have withdrawn support and software updates for both these products.
‘As technology continues to change so rapidly, it is standard practice in the industry for technology companies to withdraw support from older versions of software to focus on new technology.
This will enable us to focus investment on development to increase the frequency and scale of improvements to our more recent versions.
We will also continue to invest in ensuring legislative compliance for UK businesses, particularly during this period of significant legislative change. Since the tax year starting 6 April 2013, the government has introduced wholesale changes to payroll reporting (Real Time Information), new pensions legislation (Automatic Enrolment) and two significant changes to VAT rules (VAT MOSS and Prompt Payment Discounts). It is likely this level of legislative reform will continue, and by focusing development on more recent versions, we can better support our customers through these changes.’
