    Hi Jen,

    Just in case any of your customers run WennSoft:

    “The 2013 Canadian Payroll Year-End Update and 2014 Tax Update is scheduled to release on 12/18/2013 from Microsoft. Once we have received this release we will begin compatibility testing to Signature 2013 R2, and Signature 2010 R3 SP5. Do not load the Canadian yearend update until you see the announcement on CustomerConnect downloads that Signature is compatible. Our goal is to deliver it with as close to Microsoft release as possible.”
