How to add the Employer Address to T4 Forms

For some reason, out of the box, Dynamics GP Canadian Payroll T4 Forms don’t have the employer address. Why? I have no idea… but the information is there to be added easily, and here’s how to add it to your T4 reports for Employer and Employee versions.

New Year’s Resolutions 2016

I’ve heard that as you get older, time seems to fly by more quickly. I’ve certainly found that to be true recently, as 2015 seems to have vanished quite quickly. I’m writing this while sitting on my sofa, with a bowl of fruit and a cup of tea, my Christmas tree still lit up, reflecting on the past year and easing into my day. Before I get too comfy or distracted, here’s my annual post on my resolutions for the new year and how I fared in my resolutions for last year!

How YTD CPP & EI factor into Tax calcs

This is about something completely boring but perhaps useful to someone who is verifying Dynamics GP Canadian Payroll vs the Canada Revenue Agency’s payroll deductions online calculator.

I’ve always said, I know how the Canadian Payroll module works, but I am not a Payroll expert. I’m an accountant, not a payroll or HR person; there is a wealth of knowledge someone certified in payroll matters knows that I’ll never know!

Canadian Payroll 2015 Year End Tax Update – no news yet!

Many people have asked if I have heard when the tax update is being released this year.

Microsoft appears to be still waiting for some more information from the CRA to finalize things so there is no tentative release date yet.

Diary of a day in jury duty

A few months ago, I received a questionnaire about the possibility of the summoned for jury duty. Yikes, was my first reaction! I filled it out, indicated I was self-employed and mailed it off, hoping that was the end of it.

Then I received a summons to actually appear in court (in Ontario) the day after Thanksgiving, which was today. I’ll be completely up front and say I’ve been trying to figure out how to get out of it, ever since I got the summons. I have no issue with doing your civic duty, but I’ve yet to find a client who will pay me while I do that! Such is the nature of being self-employed, no work = no pay.

Here’s the lowdown of how my day fared:

More fun with Integration Manager

Here’s another pet peeve of mine when it comes to Integration Manager: changing the default IM database on each installation. Like my previous post on how to register IM quickly, here’s another tip on using the .ini file settings to your advantage to roll out workstation installs quickly and painlessly.

The quick way to register Integration Manager

I’m working on an upgrade at a client from GP 2010 to GP 2015. Part of this involves upgrading Integration Manager to the newest version.  As I opened IM the first time on a new install, I am reminded of what a pain in the butt it is to manually put the reg keys in each workstation.

I started reading an old installation document to update it, a document that was written by someone else for their GP 2010 installs.  It struck me that many people still don’t know there is a faster way to register Integration Manager on every machine, instead of having registration keys handy to cut and paste into each installed workstation. The instructions include the keys and the steps to put new keys in on each installation.

reImagine 2015 – wrap-up

Today, as I sit in the airport in Fargo awaiting my departing flight, I’m writing this wrap-up on the week with some random thoughts and things I forgot to include earlier. These are in no particular order.

reImagine 2015 – Day 3

Today was a half-day for the official part of the conference, unless you were taking part in post-conference training offerings. I chose to sign up for post-conference training, as I always take advantage of something interesting if I can while I am here. I figure this week is an investment in my self development and it’s worth taking advantage of any face-to-face training I can take that will help me be better at what I do.
