Sage 50cloud Accounts is the latest name for Sage 50c Accounts, that was formerly known as Sage 50 Accounts and before that Sage Line 50. It is a desktop accounting product family published by Sage Group plc primarily for the UK and Irish markets.
At the time of writing, I believe that Sage 50cloud Accounts is the most widely-used accounting software in the UK and Ireland for businesses with between 10 and 100 employees. Sage claims that over 400,000 businesses use Sage 50cloud Accounts.

Sage 50cloud Accounts includes features that enable you to collaborate via the cloud, using icrosoft Office 365. It is still called Sage 50cloud Accounts whether you enable these features or not.
