NOTE If you are using Payroll: 

  • With the release of version 2017, Sage's support for version 2012 has been suspended.  However, Payroll 7.2 is compatible with versions 2012, 2014, and 2016.  This means there will be a payroll update in December 2016 for Payroll 7.2.
  • This update will be able to be installed and activated in Version 2012.  It is possible that it will be completely functional in that version.  HOWEVER, Sage is not testing the update in version 2012, and if there are any issues with it, they will not fix it or support it in order to make it work.  Therefore, it is recommended to upgrade to the newest version available if you are running payroll.

If you need to get on a payroll supported version (2014, 2016, 2017) prior to December 2016, please call 604-544-7587 or email
