Starting May 1, 2016, if you are a Sage 100 user, active on maintenance with Sage, and you use the payroll module there is a separate fee you will pay for access to payroll. The payroll module is no longer covered under Sage Business Care and requires a separate payroll subscription.
On October 6, 2015, Sage announced plans to reassess their packaging and pricing approach for the Sage 100 and Sage 300 payroll offerings.
New packaging and pricing for Sage 100 and Sage 300 U.S. Payroll will launch:
- April 18, 2016, for businesses purchasing Sage 300 U.S. Payroll for the first time.
- April 18, 2016, for businesses purchasing Sage 100 U.S. Payroll for the first time.
- May 1, 2016, for existing Sage 100 and Sage 300 U.S. Payroll customers.
The payroll subscription includes:
- Tax table updates
- Direct deposit
- Use of payroll provided you are active under a payroll subscription plan
If you are a Sage 100 payroll user, be sure you renew BOTH your regular Sage Business Care and the new Payroll Subscription when it comes time for renewal.
Our understanding is that total employees are those employees active across all your Sage 100 company codes. Should you exceed a threshold (tier) during the year, you receive a notice from Sage that you need to upgrade the tier for the purposes of payroll subscription.
