Sage Codes

We get a number of sales with Sage customers, and many of these people are used to the ins and outs of this accounting software. Whether you’re used to firing off a Sage invoice or a VAT return, the transition to KashFlow can be seamless.

One way to help with this process is to understand how the codes used in Sage relate to KashFlow.
