Sage plans to release product updates for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in November 2015 for Versions 2013 and 4.50.
The company is testing integration mapping for ACA information to be populated into Aatrix forms. IIf product updates were released now, the integration mapping would not be included, meaning the ACA information entered into Sage 100 would not be populated into ACA 1094-C and 1095-C forms using Aatrix, which is a requirement for applicable large employers for 2015 W-2 year-end processing. Sage also is trying to include as many ACA enhancements as possible to help ensure your upgrade goes as smoothly as possible.
If you’re unable to upgrade to Sage 100 2014 or higher and you own the Visual Integrator (VI) module, you can get started by entering your employee and dependent ACA information into Sage’s ACA worksheet—visit the Sage Support Portal and search for KB 57345. Once the product update is released and installed, you’ll be able to import the ACA worksheet using the ACA VI jobs included in the product updates. For more details, see the related article, “Where are the ACA Visual Integrator jobs located.”
We highly recommend upgrading to Sage 100 ERP 2015 PU2 or 2014 PU6, which include all Phase 1 ACA enhancements. Phase 2 ACA changes for Versions 2015 and 2014 are planned to be released in a product update scheduled for November 2015.
