Sage 100 Payroll



Use the flexible features and functionality of the Sage 100 ERP (formerly Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200) Payroll module to handle your payroll complexities and ensure you’re making the correct deductions when processing your employees’ payroll. Payroll makes in-house payroll preparation easy and efficient, providing you with the ability to process at a fraction of the cost and time of a manual payroll system or outside service bureau. In addition to simplifying in-house payroll preparation, Payroll reporting capabilities provide high-level, insightful business data regarding employee deployment and costs for more informed business decisions. Add the Direct Deposit module and reduce the time and cost of processing printed payroll checks and offer employees a convenient, secure alternative to getting their checks at work or in the mail.

Payroll automatically applies earnings and deductions, calculates employee and employer payroll taxes, and prints checks and vouchers complete with year-to-date earnings and tax information. All current federal and state tax tables are included, and updates are provided as an on-plan Business Care benefit. Quickly print quarterly and annual payroll reports and W-2 forms required by various tax authorities. Information flows through to Federal and State eFiling and Reporting, which enables you to e-file. When used with the Direct Deposit module, improve employee satisfaction while saving time, money, and the environment by going paperless. Also save the cost of printing, storing, and securing your preprinted check forms.

An important feature of the Sage 100 ERP Payroll module is its ability to process earnings for more than one tax jurisdiction (state or local) for each employee per pay period, produce a single paycheck, and retain the information for later disclosure on quarterly reports and W-2 statements. Extensive information is maintained for each employee, including date of birth, emergency contacts, review dates and comments, marital and tax status, year-to-date earnings, and deductions, as well as vacation, sick days, and other benefit accruals. And, of course, the Payroll module enjoys award-winning Sage customer and technical support.
