Welcome to my website! My name is Jen Kuntz & I have created this blog to share some of what I've learned over the years! What you'll find are tips, tricks & various thoughts related to using or implementing Microsoft Dynamics GP & other related products.


I can blog again! Woohoo!

I haven’t been able to blog for a while, or at least not unless everything is text only. My website permissions were a little messed up and it’s taken me a few months to find the time to fix it.

I’ve now moved to a new webhost and all appears to be running smoothly. Yay!

I’m looking forward to getting my pile of blog topics off my desk again… :)

For those that follow me via RSS, there isn’t any change in the feed URL so you should get this post the same as the old stuff!

Canadian Payroll – Sept 1, 2014 tax update (Ontario only)

Well, the “no mid-year tax update” euphoria didn’t last too long… :)

As a result of the June 2014 Ontario election and subsequent budget in July 2014, there are tax changes, affecting Ontario only and only affecting those with incomes > $150,000. The tax changes are effective for September 1, 2014 tax tables, but are retroactive to January 1, 2014.

This update is somewhat optional as you can read below, and organizations need to decide how many of their employees it affects and if the employee(s) affected can authorize manually changing the withholding for the last 4 months of the year to accommodate the change instead of putting a new service pack in now.

If you do not have employees in Ontario, you can ignore this entirely!

Here is some more information, passed on from Microsoft:

Notice to the reader
The September 1, 2014, version of Guide T4127, Payroll Deductions Formulas for Computer Programs, contains adjustments for proposed increases to personal income tax rates tabled in the Ontario budget on July 14, 2014. The proposed changes are retroactive to January 1, 2014, and the revised tables reflect prorated tax rates to allow employers to withhold the correct additional amounts from affected employees between September and the final pay of 2014. The changes to the tables apply to employees who earn more than $150,000 in 2014.
The CRA normally requires employers to withhold and remit income taxes in line with current rates, but because of the complexities and timing of the Ontario budget measures it is recognized that these income tax changes will be implemented on a best-effort basis where practical, in full appreciation of the different payroll systems and administrative […]

New Hotfix – many Cdn Payroll fixes

This post is a little late as it came out last week… however, better late than never!

A new hotfix was released for GP2010 and GP2013. Here are the details:…


Cdn Payroll – Things that make you go hmmmm

After my last post debacle (if you missed it, you missed it!), I’ll stick to blogging about things I know best!

This is a strange one, one of those things that makes you go “hmmmmmm”.  I never understand how this …


Canadian Payroll ROE changes coming

For those users on Dynamics GP2010 and GP2013, there is a hotfix currently planned for March 2014.

The ROE (Record of Employment) has recently changed to require some fields to be zero filled that Dynamics GP doesn’t zero fill today.  This was a change that Microsoft learned about quite late in the process, hence the need for a hotfix when it’s ready.

So, stay tuned! I’ll post again when the hotfix is released.


New website is live!

I’ve done a complete re-design of my website and it’s now live! I’ve switched to WordPress and a blog-only format, instead of the format I had before.

I hope you like it!

eConnect error, but not the real error!

One of my customers is doing some Sales Order Processing integrations with GP2010… and for the most part, when we run into eConnect errors, it pretty much tells you what the issue is, and you fix it and move on.…
