As the year-end approaches, we’ve begun receiving calls from our customers about what version of Sage 100 or Sage 100cloud they should adopt in preparation for year-end processing.
In advance of the 12/31 year-end, an interim release download ( IRD ) is typically made available. This download contains last-minute fixes to prepare your payroll or accounts payable system for W2 or 1099 filing. It may also include other changes required by last-minute tax law updates.
Sage 100 Versions required to install IRD and process year end:
- 2016 PU5
- 2017 PU1 or higher
- 2018 PU2 or higher
Sage 100 v2018 users need this Payroll 2.0 Versions for processing year-end:
- Sage 100 2018 users need Payroll 2.18.5 (available in mid-Nov)
- Payroll tax table update ( TTU )will be available for 2016 and 2017 (Payroll for 2018 uses an Internet download to receive tax updates)
- Payroll 2.0 does NOT require a TTU. Tax information is maintained in CLAD and system table changes will be pushed down via the Payroll Tax Update within the software.
- Available December 19th (estimated)
Most importantly, please remember that this is the last year for Sage 100 2016 to receive any year-end related updates. If you are using this version of Sage 100 then, at the latest, you will want to upgrade in the early part of 2019.
Please refer to the follow Sage KB article for information on the supported Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud versions.
