Sage Accounts 2012 – End of Life (EoL)

Accounting, Auditing, Businesses, VAT l

For Sage 50 Accounts v2012 customers, EoL will begin on 26 January 2015 and end on 26 January 2016.

 What does EoL mean for customers? 


After 26 January 2016, upgrade pricing will no longer be available for v2012 customers.

Full RRP (licence price) will be charged if they want the latest version.


After 26 January 2016 we will cease updates to the software, meaning the product will no longer be up to date with changes in government legislation or with new technology. As technology continues to change so rapidly, being on an unsupported version of any technology can become problematic. Customers may face compatibility issues with other software and data which could lead to corruption issues, which we will not be able to help with. This could also cause problems when liaising with their accountant.


After 26 January 2015, v2012 customers without SageCover support will not be able to buy new SageCover. After 26 January 2016, v2012 customers who already have a SageCover contract will not be able to renew their contract on that version.

Perpetual upgrade

v2012 customers can buy a perpetual upgrade at July 2014 prices.

This offer is only available to v2012 customers until the end of March, and can’t be used in conjunction with any other offer.

  • Standard: £315 (RRP £536)
