Can I complete year end tasks for more than one company at once?

How to use the Multi-Company Tasks option to complete year end tasks for multiple companies in Sage 50 Payroll Professional.


Multi company tasks is a handy feature, available in Sage 50 Payroll Professional, that allows you to run a range of tasks in more than one company at a time.

This includes some year end tasks. Let's take a closer look.


Before performing any multi-company task at year end, ensure that you:

  • Take a backup of each individual company's data.
  • Have sufficient access rights. To perform multi-company tasks you must have an access level of 9, including lower levels, and access to all pay frequencies.
  • Set your process date to 5 April 2023.
  • Have completed preparation steps in the Prepare for your year end guide. Read more >
  • Installed your new tax year software before performing multi-company tasks. Read more >
