Annual Renewal Fees for Adept Add-Ons

If your Adept Add-On is mission critical, before doing a major version upgrade of Sage from example “v25 to v26” you should check our website first.  You can see this in the top right hand corner of a Tool’s tile (see right ). You can also see the current version on the page for your Tool in the Add-On Compatibility and Pricing Section (see right).

How to check if your Adept Add-On is compatible with a version of Sage.

  • Currently this is showing that the Add-On works with Sage 50 & 50cloud v25
  • Unless otherwise stated, the Add-On will also work with any minor version number updates such as v25.1 or v25.2
  • Our Adept Add-On Tools are backwards compatible when it comes to Sage versions and most go back to v8, but you should check in the page for the Add-On you have before proceeding.

Add-On Compatibility and Pricing

  • Compatible with Sage 50 & 50cloud versions 8 to 25.

Annual Licence Renewals

In order to keep your Adept Add-On up to date with changes that Sage are continually making to their software our licences need to be reactivated once a year by paying an Annual Licence Renewal fee.

  • Currently the price of an Annual Licence Renewal Fee is 20% of the RRP of the Tool, per Adept Add-On per year.
  • Your first Annual Renewal Fee will be due one year from the Full Licence purchase date.
  • Annual Renewal Fee dates are rounded to the end of the month that they fall in.
  • During the renewal month your Add-On will show a blue light bulb to warn you that the renewal is due.
  • The blue light bulb feature is dependant on the version of your Adept Add-On (as shown in its About Dialog) being at least v22.x.x.
  • You can renew at any time during the renewal month by going to the Licence Dialog in your Add-On and clicking the Buy Now button.
  • Once the renewal month has been passed your Add-On will automatically show its Licence Dialog and not proceed any further until the Renewal Fee is paid.
  • When you pay an Annual Renewal Fee the system will add one year to the current annual renewal date.
  • If you pay the Annual Renewal Fee over a year late you will be charged double the current Annual Renewal Fee to reactivate your licence. In this situation the annual expiry date will be set to one year from the date that you pay the double renewal fee.
  • Please note that providing your Adept Add-On’s licence is valid for New Sage 50 v21 there is no additional fee if you upgrade to New Sage 50 v22 or higher.
  • If you use your Adept Add-On with Old Sage 50 v20 or earlier then Annual Renewal fees will not be collected until you decide to upgrade to a newer version of Sage 50
  • If you upgrade your Sage 50 software from v20 or earlier to v21 or higher then you may have to immediately pay a single or double annual licence fee depending on how old your original Adept licence is
