I posted last week to advise that Sage 200 and Sage Payroll RTI edition are now compatible after previously blogging about a Report Designer conflict.

There are however some Report Designer issues when installing Sage 200 on the same machine as Sage 50 Accounts 2013.

Some criteria is not able to be selected (fixed by installing the latest version of Report Designer) and some duplication of Transactions may occur when exporting reports to .CSV.

End of Life for Line 100 announced

Sage have announced that Line 100 will officially reach its End of Life on 31 March 2014.

At present Sage offer Extended Support for Line 100, via SALP or Sagecover, which means that support and enable strings are still provided. Software updates related to Line 100 are not produced, so there is no guarantee that Line 100 will be legislatively compliant.

From 1 April 2014 customers will no longer be able to add users or modules to their systems and Sage will stop providing technical support to Business Partners. End users will still be able to use their software.

Where and End User is on version 7.1 or above, their software will time out on an annual basis. To continue using it they will be required to purchase an Enable string at a charge of £500 per annum (subject to annual price increases). Any customer on version 7.0 or below has a perpetual licence, which doesn’t time out, therefore they can continue to use their software without any time limit.

Now is the time to move or move your customers to Sage 200.

I posted last year about Sage 50 payroll v19 RTI not being supported on a machine running Sage 200.

Sage have now announced that they have completed testing and they are now supported together.
