Yes, it’s that time again—Sage 100 Year-End Processing Resources

It happened while we weren’t looking. Caught us while we were distracted. Nudged us out of our new normal to remind us about something actually normal. We’re talking about the approach of year-end. It’s time to start thinking about year-end processing in Sage 100. At MicroAccounting, we’ve already turned our thoughts in that direction and wanted to share some resources with you we think will help you get through the process unscathed.

Year-End Processing Webinars

To help reduce your year-end stress level, each year MicroAccounting hosts a series of free informative webinars to help you tackle the major (and minor) tasks with confidence. We invite you to register to attend the live sessions or view the recorded versions at your convenience:

In this Sage 100 Core Year End Processing training webinar you’ll discover which reports are necessary when processing General Ledger, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable year-end — plus what steps you should take to reconcile each module.

Do you remember what you need to do in your distribution modules (Inventory, Sales Order, and Purchase Order) to close out the year? Attend this free training webinar to discover which reports are necessary when processing year-end and what steps to take to reconcile each module.

Attend this webinar to learn the appropriate steps for handling your W2's and tax table updates, what reports you need to print, and what steps you need to take to reconcile.

While we host these webinars each year, we update the content annually so that each presentation incorporates changes and nuances unique to the times. Attendees of past years’ events tell us they come away with a clear plan and increased confidence for handling their Sage 100 year-end processing. We also provide attendees a closing-order list and checklist for each module you can use to follow along.

Other Resources at Your Disposal

If you're the kind that likes to hear about other Sage 100 users’ experiences during year-end, have a specific question, or perhaps want to come away with a trick or two, we’d like to remind you about the additional educational resources available to you. We highlighted each of these resources in this earlier article, but here’s a quick reminder of what they are and where to find them.

Sage City: Sage City is a valuable, free, and easily accessible resource that’s fun to browse even when you aren’t looking for something specific.

Sage University: Sage University offers an extensive curriculum consisting of hundreds of courses (including many covering year-end tasks) to help you get the most out of your Sage 100 solution.

Sage Knowledgebase: The Sage Knowledgebase is an online powerhouse resource providing you with access to the same support content our own Sage experts use.
