Software name and icon change in Sage 50 Payroll

Created on  | Last modified on 


Information on the name change from Sage 50 Payroll to Sage 50 Payroll, including some questions and answers.


We've already refreshed our brand with a bold new look. As well as this, from v29 we're introducing a change of name from Sage 50 Payroll to Sage 50 Payroll.

Don't worry though, your software still works just as before, including any online features such as Sage HR Online Services, and the Pensions Data Exchange.


When you install v29 of Sage 50 Payroll, you can see that the name change is in place along with a new look to the initial loading screen for your software.

Desktop shortcut

When you download and install Sage 50 Payroll v29 your software places a new icon on the desktop named Sage 50 Payroll. Both this and your original Sage 50 Payroll icon open v29.

To remove the old shortcut, simply right click on it then click Delete. If you're prompted to provide administrator access, click Continue.

Support guides and videos 

We're working hard to update the naming in our online support guides and any videos featured in those pages.

Until this is complete, guides and videos featuring the name Sage 50 Payroll remain available and the steps within are correct. You can still follow these as normal, as your software works in the same way as before.
