Did you know you can open multiple instances of Sage 50 at the same time?

Sage 50 Accounts


You can now open multiple instances of Sage 50 Accounts, allowing you to switch between different companies.

This feature is only available in Sage 50 v28.1.  You can check your version number from within Sage 50 Accounts via Help > About.

How do I open more than one company at a time?

1. Open Sage 50 Accounts as usual, and login to one of your companies.

2. Open the Windows Start Menu.

3. Find the Sage Accounts folder and click Sage 50 Accounts.

TIP: You can also double-click your desktop shortcut to open another instance of Sage 50cloud Accounts.

4. A new window will open, and you’ll be prompted to select the company you want to log in to.

This short video shows you how you can open more than one company at a time in Sage 50 Accounts.

NOTE: The number of companies you can access at once will depend on the amount of memory available on your computer.

You can use this process to log in to different companies – if you choose to log in to the same company twice on the same computer, you’ll be logged out of one session.
