What does this mean for you?

Sage has been working behind the scenes to ensure we could react quickly and have the guidance and support ready to help your business manage the change as soon as it comes into effect.​

Businesses that buy and sell food, provide accommodation or manage attractions will need to update their software for these changes in VAT and Sage is uniquely positioned to support businesses through this change as we have done in the past with auto enrolment, RTR and MTD.

Over the coming days we will share further information with you about what the changes mean for you and how to handle them within your Sage 200cloud Professional software.
