Guess what? It’s almost halfway through 2016! Wow, where did the time go?
For Microsoft Dynamics GP users with Canadian Payroll, that means it might be tax update time for you again as typically there are semi-annual tax changes. Most years, only a handful of provinces have tax changes so many customers can evaluate for themselves if this particular year would affect their employees or not.
Keep in mind, the tax updates are not “just” tax updates – they are full fledged service packs and often will also contain fixes for other modules. What does that mean?
- Even if you are not a Canadian Payroll module user, you may want to install this service pack if it contains a fix for an issue that affects your environment.
- If you are a Canadian Payroll module user, and you don’t have employees in the jurisdictions indicated in the updates, you can typically skip this update (assuming you don’t have a need for any of the other fixes). The updates are always cumulative so the next update will also contain these mid year changes if you skip this update.
