What next for Sage 300 UK & Ireland users? Read our FAQ
As a Sage user, you are hopefully already aware that Sage 300 is no longer available for purchase here in the UK & Ireland.
There will be no further updates or upgrades for existing users, nor the option to purchase additional licenses for those already using Sage 300.
These changes have already taken effect, as of 31st May 2021.
As far as support for Sage 300 users is concerned, direct support from Sage will also be withdrawn from 30th September 2022.
You may have over a year to consider your options, but we would recommend you review your longer-term business systems strategy well in advance of this date to ensure you make the right decisions for your business and that any action you take is as smooth as possible.
It is important to note that it is only support directly from Sage that will be coming to an end; Acuity/Oakuity will continue to support its existing customers who wish to continue using Sage 300 past 30th September 2022.
However, the challenge will be that if any issues arise with your Sage 300 software that cannot be resolved in-house by us, we will not be able to rely on any UK support from Sage.
For example, if your operating system is updated and becomes incompatible with your running version of Sage 300, or if there are any statutory legal updates such as Making Tax Digital.
