Sage 200cloud 2019 Summer Enhancement Pack – New Features

One of the key benefits that users running on Sage 200cloud experience are the update packs which are frequently released by Sage, allowing users to further enhance their Sage 200 system. These packs contain plenty of great new features, as requested by Sage 200 users, and we are going to take a look at some of the new features contained in the latest enhancement pack – Sage 200cloud Summer 2019.

 

New Microsoft Flows 

 

You can now send email notifications by using these new Microsoft flows that we’ve provided. Microsoft Flow is a cloud-based service that makes it practical and simple for people to build workflows that automate business tasks and processes across applications and services. To use this feature, you’ll need to use Microsoft Flow with an Office 365 subscription.

  • The purchase requisitions flow automatically sends emails to people to notify them during the authorisation process.
  • Authorisers will receive email notifications when they have new purchase requisitions that require authorisation.
  • The person who submitted the purchase requisition will receive an email notification when it is authorised or rejected.
  • The supplier bank details flow automatically sends emails to people to notify them of any changes to the bank details for supplier accounts.

 

The emails are sent to everyone that has user access to the Audit Log, so that they can check the changes in the log.
To set up these flows for email notifications, see Set up Microsoft Flow with Sage 200c.

 

Bank Reconciliations Improvements

 

The following improvements have been made to bank reconciliations as a result of the feedback directly from clients:

  • You can now part reconcile a transaction, rather than the full amount. The remaining amount can be completed the next time you do your bank reconciliation. This transaction will be marked ‘Part’ to show it has been part done.
  • You can now see the URN of a transaction when you reconcile or unreconcile.

 

Scan and Attach Documents Feature Expansion

 

With the new release, you can attach files and scanned documents when you view sales invoices and credit notes, confirm receipt of goods received, and view delivery history of a purchase order or return.

 

Reverse charge VAT for CIS

 

From October 2019, companies in the UK’s construction industry may have to handle and pay VAT in a different way following the introduction of the new VAT reverse charge system for the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). For supplies of certain specified construction services, the customer will be liable to account to HMRC for the VAT for these purchases instead of the supplier. The reverse charge will include goods which supplied with the specified services.

 

Brexit Preparations

 

  • You can now set your EORI number in company details. This is required by UK companies trading in the EU, and Irish companies trading outside the EU.
  • Easily set the Country of Origin for a stock item when using a UK company.

 

Other Improvements

 

  • View a list of users preventing access to features because they are using a related feature.
  • Based on customer feedback, Sage have made it possible for you to show the default contact’s email address on the Customer List and Supplier List.
  • Sage have changed the calculations for the totals on invoices and orders when notional VAT rates are used.
