Major blue chip companies love to use suppliers as a source of free credit. They hang on to your money as long as possible as part of their business model.
Possibly one of the larger UK fund managers who work in futures markets could give a forward exchange buy/sellprice on a currency swap?
Get 3 valuations from 3 traders then average?
Presumably accountants for fund managers have to do this excerise now anyway under FRS102?
I agree though that it's all a bit mad. If we "knew" future currency rates we'd all be speculating on currencies instead of doing a real job?
As John said, manually download the update you require.
If you go to Help > About on each machine, you will be able to see the specific version and build number - this will tell you which update/patch you need for the machine which is giving you problems.
Are both machines on the same operating system, eg. Windows 7, 8 or 10?
There might be a record of each sale on your clients email system or webmail account.
I also find it very had to believe that Ebay only keep 6 months of data.
As a last resort - have you tried GCHQ in Cheltenham? ;-)
Delete and repost
There is no facility within Sage 50 to convert a Bank Payment (BP) transaction into a Supplier Payment (PP)
Simplest option is to delete the Bank Payment, and repost as supplier payment using identical date and reference.
Domains n' stuff
Domains should always be registered to the customer, but some companies are very sloppy about this and just accidentally register to themselves, which creates the very commmon problem you are now encountering. A few companies do so deliberately to make it difficult for you to move hosting: Vistaprint springs to mind with their "free" domain registration.
The problem normally only comes to light when you part company with your web people, then you discover they hold legal title to the domains you thought were yours.
For the sake of I'd guess <£200 hosting, I'd forget about reclaiming unused hosting time, but concentrate on a speedy and amicable transfer of domain ownership and hosting.
If your client is disorganised as you think they are, keeping it simple and quick will be more likely the result in a good outcome than a long dragged out argument about what you were paying for and how long it covered.
Your website is important to your company, but of more importance is safe and reliable access to your email.
I'm assuming this is a .com since you mentioned Namesco. .com transfers are very simple and in most cases free.
.co.uk transfers are done through Nominet, cost £10 and are a tad more official in terms of proof of ownership.
Directors name on card, but application made by company, and card paid by company.
thanks, I'm satisfied it shoukld go to other income.
