New Payroll v7.2 – Important News for Payroll Users
Sage has announced the release of a new version of the Payroll module that includes compliance reporting and tracking mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
It’s important to note that Sage will exclusively support Payroll version 7.2. This means that support for previous versions will be discontinued, and tax updates for these versions no longer released. This applies to both US and Canadian Payroll. Even if you are not subject to ACA reporting, it’s very important that we discuss your upgrade with you soon so you will have access to 2016 tax table updates.
Introduction to Sage 300 7.2 Payroll and Workforce Analyzer & ACA Reporting Requirements for Q4 2015
Depending on which version of Sage 300 you are running, you may be able to update only the payroll module. Sage Payroll 7.2 is compatible with Sage 300 versions 2012, 2014, and 2016 (when released in the fall). Customers on Payroll 6.0 will need to upgrade their entire system and all modules to be compatible with Sage Payroll 7.2.
Both the US and Canadian editions of this new version includes;
- Fresh, Modern Look and Feel

Additionally, the Canadian edition includes T4A and RL-2 reporting options for Earning/Deduction codes.
