Sage 300 CRE Payroll Update Notice 16-B

Sage has released Notice 16-B for Payroll. This notice applies to you if you have installed Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate version 14.1 or 15.1 and you use Payroll.

What's new in this update

  • If there is an apostrophe in a Pay ID, Deduction ID, Fringe ID, Employee ID, Aatrix Group ID, Certified Class ID, Job ID, or Tax ID, you can now generate W-2 forms, W-3 forms, ACA 1095 forms, T4 forms, ROE forms, DOL (Certified) reports, and state reports that use custom state or local tax rates.

  • If you have an employee who has taxable wages for multiple local taxes in an Aatrix local tax group, the tax amount for each tax ID now shows correctly on the W-2 form.

  • If you have employees who live or work in New Jersey, the NJFLI (New Jersey Family Leave Insurance) amount is correctly included on the W-2 form.
  • If you have employees who live or work in Connecticut and you use named Payroll files, you can now generate W-2 forms.

If you have employees who were terminated and the termination date uses a regional format (such as DD/MM/YY instead of MM/DD/YY), you can now generate T4 forms.
