Launched on 1 February 2016, Sage 50 Accounts Essentials replaced Sage Instant Accounts, Sage's simpler versions aimed at SME's.

It is only available on subscription and can no longer be purchased on a perpetual (one-off) licence fee, enforcing Sage's commitment to getting more customers over to subscriptions.

A major driving force behind this is to ensure clients are continually able to access Sage Drive (included within the subscription fee) and that they always have access to the most up-to-date version.
