Sage have announced that they are pulling back their previously planned payroll tier pricing rollout schedule for Sage 100 and Sage 300 in order to “reassess our go-to-market approach and delay this launch until early 2016”.

Sage today announced a change to the way  they price and charge maintenance on their payroll module for Sage 100 and Sage 300 customers.
