Sage 100 Payroll Customers
Deadline Approaching Soon

Last year, Sage announced that they were changing the way Sage 100 payroll is packaged, priced, and delivered. Now the time has come for current payroll module customers to take action. In this article, we'll explain how and why.

Choose a New Payroll Option

Based on last year's announcement, you'll need to choose a new payroll option - either payroll tier subscription or Sage Payroll Full Service - by April 30, 2017.

Option 1: Payroll Tier Subscription

This option allows you to continue using your in-house Sage 100 or 100c payroll module as you do today, with the added benefit of direct deposit service for no additional cost. The biggest difference is that the payroll subscription cost is
determined by the number of unique employees per pay period (your "payroll tier") rather than module pricing.

Option 2: Full Service Payroll

Sage Payroll Full Service is a fully managed payroll option.You can process payroll online, or have Sage payroll experts run it for you. Additional benefits include the option to have tax filing and payment services managed on your behalf.

SPECIAL SAGE OFFER: Expires April 14, 2017

Sage is currently offering a Payroll price match promotion. The promotion offers the full service payroll option for the same price as your current payroll tier, for the first year of service
