A Guide to Sage 100 Payroll Options

Understanding Recent Changes and New Products Available

For Sage 100 customers, the payroll landscape has changed a bit over the last few months. In this article, we’ll review these changes and take a look at various payroll processing options now available.

Sage 100 Payroll Module

This option is essentially the traditional Payroll module (and Direct Deposit) that has been available for many years. Working as a built-in component of your Sage 100 system, the payroll module is a good fit for companies that want total control over payroll processing and have the in-house staff and expertise to manage the process. This is also a good option for companies that use job cost tracking.

Recently, Sage implemented a change in pricing to the Sage 100 Payroll module (U.S.) which is now available only as a subscription license and is based on newly-structured payroll pricing tiers. Get in touch if you’d like details about the changes that were made.

Sage Payroll Services (Cloud)

The newer Sage Payroll Services is available in two options:

Sage Payroll Essentials - key your payroll data into the cloud-based application and Sage Payroll Services takes it from there, handling direct deposit and filing all taxes.  The payroll processing data will then update Sage 100 through integration. This self-service option is for small companies with up to 10 employees and fairly simple payroll needs.

Sage Payroll Full Service - this is full-service outsourced payroll for companies that have complex needs and want access to a dedicated payroll expert to guide them.  You also get a wider and more advanced range of payroll options along with expanded GL export capability to reduce or eliminate rekeying of payroll data.


Sage HRMS is a more comprehensive approach to payroll processing because it also offers a full range of Human Resource Management capabilities like recruiting, benefits management, HR compliance reporting, and much more.  Similar to the Sage 100 Payroll module option, this solution is for companies that want total control over payroll and have in-house expertise - with the added benefit of HR and payroll integration.
