Import your file to complete the conversion

We’re aware that Sage are migrating parters to Sage for Accountants. We don’t have full details of the iomport process but have included separate instructions for these at the bottom of the page under the Import into Sage for Accountants section.

Import into Sage Partner Edition

We’ve prepared your conversion file that you’ll need to import into Sage Accounting to complete the conversion process. We’re providing this file because you’ve indicated you’re an accountant.

If you have an existing Partner Pack with promotional rates available, please contact Sage with details of the ‘Client’ name as it appears in your Accounting Partner Edition and the email address you use to login.

To import the attached file please log into Sage Accounting Partner Edition and click Add New Client > Migrate a Client:
