Sage 50 Accounting Software

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Bookkeeping is an important component in all small-to-medium sized businesses, many of which use Sage 50 Accounting. This software manages numerous bookkeeping tasks including: a Chart of Accounts; Accounts Receivable; Accounts Payable; Payroll processing; Remittances to governing bodies; tracking Inventory/Services; Job Costing; Account Reconciliation; and generating numerous reports for various needs. Sage 50 Accounting software handles these tasks – and more – using a reliable double-entry bookkeeping process with a reputable audit trail.

Good bookkeeping requires a knowledge of Debits and Credits, an understanding of financial accounting, and an organized, detail-oriented individual who can keep accurate, up-to-date records which are vital to the well-being of any business. However, the successful results of using an accounting software are only as good as the bookkeeper’s knowledge level of the work they are performing and their ability to use a software program properly.

The material covered in this certificate program will provide students an opportunity to gain knowledge of the Sage 50 Accounting software. This program begins with an introduction to the software by examining the default Settings and modifying of a Chart of Accounts, and allows students to experience its many capabilities through the hands-on application of a company’s financial activities. The program also includes training in both Microsoft Word and Excel to explore the Sage 50 Accounting software’s capabilities to export data into these programs.

The curriculum is delivered by an instructor and training manuals are provided in each of the core courses.
