Dear Student, Congratulations on choosing to learn Sage 50 Accounts, the quick cheap and easy way with my self-teaching, home learning course. In these tough recessional times, people cannot afford the hundreds or thousands of pounds demanded by my competitors to learn this software. I have written this course as a user of Sage for over twenty years, in the real world for real clients. I take client’s books to management account level, leaving the minimal of work for the accountants to produce accounts at year end. I have enclosed my C.V. outlining my vast experience in this field for your perusal. What you will now receive: (Free access to Sage Software is available).

  1. Sage 50 Accounts Level One course (12 exercises). (13 Pages). (Word document). – This is the main course, covering the twelve basic

functions of Sage. Every single key stroke, and screen position is detailed to make operation simple. After carrying out exercise 1 on this sheet, switch to the student exercises (Item 2), and carry out exercise 1 on it yourself. Then go to exercise 2 on the main sheet, before switching to the student exercises sheet, and carry out exercise 2 yourself. Then go to 3 on the main, then 3 on the student exercises, and continue in this manner to the end. On the final page at the end, there are listings of function keys in Sage, and also Non-Vatable items. Have a quick look at these first, and remember to refer to them throughout the course.  

  1. Twelve student exercises (You may refer to the more detailed exercises on item1). (Four pages). (Word document). (See item 1 for explanation).
  1. Sage 1 solutions folder. (21 pages) (Word documents within “Sage 1 solutions” folder). I would prefer you not to refer to these, until after attempting to complete the course on your own.
  1. Course materials folder, containing seven items. (Word, PDF & Windows picture viewer). Details below:

  COA – Chart Of Accounts. This is the section of Sage that drives and controls the production of the financial accounts, and covers every eventuality. All these items are already automatically set up in Sage. You will see that should you need to set up a new nominal account, you should ensure that you select the correct type, then category. Once these two steps are complete, Sage will then give you the next available code number within these. (Keep this next to you throughout the course, as it will be required to refer to throughout). NOMLIST – Nominal List. These are individual nominal codes, which Sage has again set up, within the chart of accounts. For example, on the COA, look at the top item, the type Sales. The category named Product Sales, contains the nominal code range of 4000-4099. Now on the Nominal individual code list, only the first few at the start of this range have been used. The same will be the case right throughout the COA, leaving many spaces for new nominal codes. (Keep this next to you throughout the course as it will be required to refer to throughout). CONTROL ACCOUNTS - These are fixed nominal account numbers already set up in Sage for Debtors/Creditors/Bank/Sales/Purchases etc. They cannot be changed. VAT CODES 1 & 2. These “T” codes are used for posting, and determining the rate of VAT. The most common one used is T1, which carries the standard rate of VAT, currently 20%, but in this course we are using the previous rate of 17.5%. T0 is for zero rated VAT items. All the other T codes in use are given an explanation next to them. The other commonly used code is T9, the non-vatable code. Although all T9 items are zero VAT rated, there is a crucial difference between T0 and T9. T0 items such as say, small suppliers not VAT registered are entered in this way so that the goods element appears in the VAT detail report, automatically produced by Sage. (This is covered in Sage Level 2). However items such as salary payments, bank charges and journal entries, to name but a few, do not need to be entered in the VAT detail report, and are therefore entered with a T9 VAT code. STUDENT EXERCISES 4 & 5, are needed for those specific student exercises.
