Simplify your payroll process with a solution that integrates seamlessly with Sage 50 and calculates deductions, keeps up with ever-changing tax laws and updates, provides over 260 federal and state signature-ready forms, & allows you to easily prepare paychecks and print directly from your PC. Simple & Select Payroll (payroll tax updates and e-Filing) are no longer sold separately. Going forward Sage's Gold Business Care Plan or Platinum Business Care Plan will be required to download payroll tax updates and e-File through your Sage 50 (formerly Peachtree) software. The Gold or Platinum Business Care will provide you with 1 year of Sage (formerly Peachtree) Phone Support on Sage's toll free line, Simple Payroll (payroll tax updates), discounted price to add e-Filing, all program upgrades and updates released during your enrollment (version 2013 now and then version 2014 when released approximately May/June), Sage Email & Live Chat Support, Online Training, and one license for Sage 50 Business Intelligence. With the Gold Business Care Plan you will be able to process payroll for up to 50 employees. If your company is processing payroll for more than 50 employees, Platinum Business Care will be required. Please contact Jennifer by email or 978-470-0799 Ext. 16 for pricing and any questions you may have.

North Star Ventures sells, installs and supports the following Sage 50 Payroll products:

Note: When upgrading to Sage 50 Accounting 2013 from earlier versions of Peachtree, you will no longer be able to manually manipulate the tax tables within the software. The Gold or Platinum Business Care will now be required in order for your Sage 50 (formerly Peachtree) to calculate taxes, benefits and liabilities on payroll checks, access payroll tax forms, and to use the Exception, Payroll Tax, Tax Liability, Vacation and Sick reports or any custom reports based on these reports. Without a Gold or Platinum Business Care subscription, you will only be able to manually enter the tax, benefit and liability figures on payroll checks and run payroll reports not previously listed.

Peachtree Today has been replaced with Business Status Center.
The Forms Designer can no longer be used to customize Payroll Tax form templates.
Payroll Tax Forms are not supported on a dot-matrix printer.
