TASBooks to Sage 50 Migration free for Pimbrook Clients


TASBooks is approaching its end of life with no new development being carried out and it is starting to struggle to work on the new Windows operating systems and computers (see our related article – TASBooks Issues on Latest Operating Systems

So it is important to consider where you will go after TASBooks. One of the better options is to upgrade to Sage 50 and Pimbrook can off this free of charge to any client that takes out a support contract with us. For more information on how TASBooks compares with Sage 50 see our recording on  TASBooks vs Sage Accounting Software

Please contact us at or call the office on 051-395900 to discuss your options.

TASBooks Issues on Latest Operating Systems

We are receiving several reported issues with Microsoft and TASBooks. i.e.

  • Failures when emailing with MS Outlook
  • Errors when exporting to MS Excel

As TAS Books is approaching end of life with no further development happening, we want to advise you that any upgrade of your operating system may leave you without some fundamental functions in your software. And unfortunately, even with the expertise in our team we may not be able to resolve these.

Please contact us to discuss your future options.
