Sage Payroll and 1099 Compatibility Change

Will you be affected?

Effective with the scheduled December 2023 release of Payroll 2.24, payroll and 1099 customers on Sage 100 versions 2018 and 2019 must upgrade to one of the following supported versions to install the latest release of Payroll:

  • 2020 All Product Updates
  • 2021 All Product Updates
  • 2022 All Product Updates
  • 2023 All Product Updates


Who will be impacted? 

Sage 100 Payroll clients using 1099 functionality that are currently running versions 2018 or 2019.     

**Clients running unsupported legacy Sage Payroll versions do not have the option of a separate Payroll installation and are not impacted by this change**

When will I experience an impact? 

Upon the release of Sage 100 Payroll 2.24 and the E-filing update of forms for the reporting year of 2022, scheduled for release in December 2023.

What issues will I face if I do not upgrade by the release of Sage Payroll 2.24? 

The inability to generate 1099's, W-2's, or associated tax reporting documents through E-Filing.

Will I be required to continue to update Sage 100 to use Sage Payroll every year? 

No, however, starting with the 2.24 Sage Payroll release there will be an n-3 support policy.  This means the Sage Payroll update will only be compatible with the latest and three prior versions of Sage 100.

Sage Work Order vs Sage Production Management 

green cloud

Business Framework Compliant?

Business framework allows for primary and secondary grids in data entry, UDFs, sizable windows and other user functionality.  Sage Production Management is framework compliant, Work Order is not.  


Dynamic Inventory?

Dynamic inventory is real-time updating of inventory transactions and quantity on hand as materials are issued to a work ticket.  Sage Production Management allows for dynamic inventory, Work Order does not.


Ease of Transaction Entry?

Sage Work Order requires transactions and register updates to post the 8 transaction types.  Sage Production Management allows the release of a work ticket, labor transactions and dynamic inventory without a register posting to update the work ticket.

Microsoft Disables TLS 1.0/1.1


In September of 2023, Sage servers will stop accepting communications from Sage 100 product versions using Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1.  TLS is a security protocol that creates encryption paths over computer networks to help ensure that online communications and information cannot be intercepted.  Regulatory standards have increasingly required the adoption of TLS 1.2 and subsequent deprecation of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 due to known security risks.  
What does disabling TLS 1.0/1.1 mean for you?  You will need to move to a supported version of Sage by September 2023. 
Here is a list of supported versions:
  • 2018 Product Update 10 only
  • 2019 Product Update 4 only
  • 2020 Product Update 1 only
  • 2021 All Product Updates
  • 2022 All Product Updates
  • 2023 All Product Updates
Sage will be monitoring this and you may go into Read Only if you are not on a version of Sage that supports TLS 1.2.
Contact us now to be put into the queue for an upgrade to avoid interruptions in your Sage Software come September 2023.
