Sage 50 pro with payroll 2019


I am shopping around for Sage 50 pro with payroll 2019, and I am getting confused. Most places, such as Sage sell only the download. I was offered a price of 872$ versus 599.99$ at Staples. I found a Staples store that has the CD kit for 499$, but was told I had to pay 330$/year to Sage for the payroll. Last year I used Sage 50 pro with payroll 2018, but I was not required to pay extra for the payroll; I simply entered the source deduction information manually. 

I have between 0 and 3 employees throughout the year so I don't want to pay 330$ for payroll.  I'm not even sure now that if I buy the download from Staples, if it includes the payroll for the year. Before purchasing the 2019 CD with payroll, can you tell me if I will still be able to prepare paychecks? 

thank you.

    Hello ,

    Thanks for reaching out! Correct only at retail can you find a perpetual license box with CD, with the option of adding access to the payroll module for 1 year (which needs to be renewed). The access to / use of the payroll module requires an annual (basically) "repurchase" of the entire software package. The subscription option can be cheaper.

    If you are handling payroll for 1-3 employees then here's something worth exploring. The Payment Evolution and Sage | Accounting integration. 

    What's the catch? If you want Payment Evolution to integrate with accounting software like Sage | Accounting, then you'll have to opt for either the Business or Business+ plan which start at $22/month (good for up to 25 employees) , it's $1.50/employee/run (per additional employee)

    Sage Business Cloud | Accounting, (formerly known as Sage One)'s version available in Canada, now has most of the features of Sage 50's Pro edition. This means a lot more flexibility for the small business builder and entrepreneur. To save time migrating your data we've created a migration tool to help extract your data from Sage 50 and import it into Sage | Accounting

    What employee payroll tiers are available for Sage 50cloud?

    Every payroll plan has a base price that includes Tier 1 (1-10 employees), therefore there is no extra charge for any companies that fall into Tier 1. For Tiers 2 to 5, the total extra amount charged is based upon the following tier system.

    Tier 1: 1-10 employees

    Tier 2: 11-15 employees

    Tier 3: 16-30 employees

    Tier 4: 31-50 employees

    Tier 5: 51-100 employees 

    Tier 6: Unlimited employees

    Hope this info helps!

    Warm Regards,

    Thanks for the information; I just want to confirm that I understood the first option. If I buy the CD box at retail, I can use the payroll option without subscribing to anything else?! which also means I need to update the version every year. To pay a fee for monthly payroll is a heavy expense for us as, for example, we are entering March this week and I've had no business, therefore, no revenue and no employees to pay...

    Hi Gayleeliza

    Retail box is perpetual license, if you buy it with payroll 1 year, it includes 12 month payroll for Tier 1, you are not require to subscribe to any plan.
