Prepare for Sage Year-End

Everything you need to know about changes to government compliance reporting and how these impact your business and Sage application.

Changes to government compliance reporting for 2020 4th quarter (Payroll) and year-end (Accounts Payable and Payroll) will only be supported in Sage 300 CRE software version 20 or higher or Sage 100 Contractor Version 22 or higher.  End-of-support for older versions of Sage software and changes to government compliance reporting make 2020 year-end updates more complex –  especially for those who use the 1099/1099-NEC.

Aktion Associates can help you to upgrade your Sage Software solution to align to this compliance requirement. Our Sage certified software engineers specialize in maintaining Sage software and regular updates and can help you with questions that you have if you would like to do it yourself or can manage the upgrade for you.

Please Note:

While we don’t know everything that is included in the Sage Year-End updates, we do know two things:

  1. The updates will be available mid-December
  2. The updates will require a full system upgrade. This isn’t a simple change, but a more in-depth update.

Below, you can find the system requirements for the upgrade as well as a short video on what features are now available in the latest versions.

Are your third-party products ready for this upgrade too?

If you use third-party products that integrate with Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate or Sage 100 Contractor, check with the vendor of your third-party product to ensure their product is fully compatible with this release. If you integrate with other Sage products, check with the product provider to ensure that these components are compatible.

Is your infrastructure ready for an upgrade?

If you are on Microsoft server 2008 or Windows 7, Sage will no-longer support solutions on this operating system. Now might be a good time to talk to your Aktion Sales rep about modernizing your IT infrastructure or discussing putting a portion of your current . We will work with you to assess your current operating system and identify options for servers, managed services and cloud deployments.

Running Sage Estimating?

We recommend that you upgrade Sage Estimating along with your upgrade to your accounting system.
