Frequently asked about converting to Sage Business Cloud Accounting

What is Movemybooks?

Movemybooks is online software by Ledgerscope, experts at providing productivity tools for accountants. Movemybooks converts company accounting and financial data and loads it in to Sage Business Cloud Accounting. We can currently transfer data from Xero and QuickBooks Online.

Is Movemybooks endorsed by Sage?

Yes. Although Movemybooks is not part of Sage, we work in partnership with Sage to ensure we’re able to transfer data swiftly and accurately. Sage recommends using Movemybooks to transfer data to Sage Business Cloud Accounting from Xero or QuickBooks Online.

How long will it take to transfer the data?

We usually ask customers to allow 3 working days for a conversion.

How will the data be used?

When you provide us with access to your data, our software simply converts it to Sage Business Cloud Accounting format. We don’t review it in detail, share it with anyone outside our business, or use it for anything else. We do not retain the data permanently and it will be deleted from our servers after 3o days.

How will the data be protected?

Our online software is protected by strong encryption. This scrambles the data, making it virtually impossible to intercept and decode online. Data is stored encrypted on our servers. We also make sure data is encrypted when we transfer it to Sage. For more information please refer to our Security FAQ.

How much does the service cost?

Our pricing is clear and transparent and available on our homepage. A new Sage Business Cloud Accounting business is required for each conversion. For business owners we will create this for you and transfer it to you after the conversion completes. For accountants we need to send you a file and instructions to import it into your Sage Accounting Partner Edition.

Can I move more than two years of transactions?

Yes at an additional cost per extra year. See the pricing information on our homepage.

I’ve already created a Sage Business Cloud Accounting business, can I still convert data to that account?

No, we need to create the business at the time of the conversion.

What software can I convert from?

You can convert data from UK versions of Xero and QuickBooks Online.

Can I convert clients who work with foreign currencies?

Data which includes foreign currencies will be converted in the same way as other data. However, all foreign currency amounts will be changed to the home currency values. Factors specific to each software, and beyond our control, usually mean the conversion result is not completely accurate. We cannot therefore support fixing your conversion and you will need to accept the conversion results "as is".
