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.
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

The State of Oregon is developing an Oregon Retirement Savings Program (OregonSaves) for employers who do not offer one to employees currently. Employees will need to be automatically enrolled in the program unless they opt out. Following are the current deadlines that have been established:
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.

Here we are, on the verge of 2016's close. The end of the year can be a hectic time for those with accounting-related duties. There are books to square up, new guidelines to learn about, and tax season to prepare for. We've assembled some information that will hopefully make those tasks easier...or at least more approachable.
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
There are now four different payroll offerings through Sage Software, for Sage 100, and we'd like to let our clients and others know what those options are.
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.
