Sage has issued a hotfix for their payroll which allows those who elected not to subscribe to the new payroll tiers to view payroll reports. Previously if a subscription was not present and the user previously was licensed for payroll they would have been locked out of the module – including any reporting.
This hotfix also reportedly extends the payroll expiration date for partner and accountant internal use copies of Sage payroll.
A separate hotfix is available by version and the fixes are only available for supported versions of Sage 100 and Sage 100c.
Allows read-only access to an unregistered Payroll Module.
Extends the Payroll expiration date for Resellers and SAN Customers with Not For Resale (NFR) keys.
