Sage 100, Sage 100Cloud, and the New Statewide Transit Tax

Posted by Sue on June 12, 2018 at 3:40 PM

Sage Software will only be updating Sage 100 version 2018 and Sage 100Cloud version 2018 to accommodate the new, statewide Oregon Transit Tax, which goes into effect on July 1 of this year. As we mentioned in our preview last month, the Transit Tax is 0.1% of each and every Employee’s Withholding Wage, is to be reported quarterly, and is reported on a separate form that is not part of the Oregon OQ Quarterly filing. For Sage Payroll clients on versions 2014, 2015, 2016, or 2017 (or even older versions!), we’ve had to be creative to accommodate the new tax. For clients using Sage Payroll version 2018, you’ll receive the update automatically through the new 2018 Tax Engine at month end.

Posted by B/P News & Notes on July 21, 2017 at 8:07 AM

Sage has released a program fix for Sage 100 Payroll that addresses the issue of employee counts being artificially increased when employee renumbering is performed. This issue can cause clients to get pushed up into the next Payroll pricing tier.

The update is only needed if you are on one of the following Sage 100 versions:

  • 2016, Product Update 4 or 5
  • 2017, Product Update 1 or 2

Important Update Required for Sage 100 Payroll

Posted by B/P News & Notes on April 10, 2017 at 8:38 AM

Sage 100 Payroll clients must update their software license keys prior to April 30th to ensure there will be no interruption in the functioning of the Payroll module.If your Sage 100 software displays a Payroll Subscription Expiration date of 4/30/2017, your Payroll module will be put in a read only mode by Sage after that date unless the license key is updated (meaning you will not be able to enter any new data in the module - you'll only be able to view historical data). Sage 100 program logic allows Sage Software to limit use of the Payroll module to only those clients with a current Payroll subscription who have also applied an update to the license key.

Some Serious Payroll Changes for 2017

Posted by Sue on December 1, 2016 at 1:06 PM

There are quite a few Payroll changes coming in 2017 – and you need to know about two major ones right away. The first is a fairly major change to the due date for employers to file:

  • W-2’s and their accompanying W-3 forms, and
  • 1099’s and their accompanying 1096 forms
In previous years, the deadline has been January 31 st for mailing the employee/vendor copy, and then the employer had until the end of March (if you were filing electronically) to file their copies with the Federal Government. The new due date for the employer to get their copies to the Federal Government is now January 31st – regardless of whether you’re filing electronically or not. The IRS has been proposing this change for years, and it actually does make sense. Many employees file their tax returns before the Federal Government can cross check the employee figures with the employer figures. Apparently, the historical two-month delay between the two due dates has resulted in tax fraud and identity theft.

Sage recently announced a major change to pricing and annual renewals for the Sage 100 Payroll module, which will go into effect with the Sage Business Care plans that expire on or after May 1st of this year. As of May 1st, the next time your annual Business Care plan renews, the Payroll module will not be included as part of that plan. Instead, it will be broken out into a separate subscription plan. The cost of your subscription will be based on the number of employees you have across all companies.
