Right on time, Microsoft announced the release of Dynamics GP2015 yesterday (December 1, 2014).
Awesome! Tons of new features and continued advancement in integration of data and possibilities for applications.
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!
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.
This isn’t new news if you have heard this through the grapevine already but for those of you who haven’t heard, there are no tax changes for 2014 mid year in Canadian Payroll for Dynamics GP.
Enjoy your Canada Day free of service pack stress 🙂
(Shortest post ever!)
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.
It’s that time of year again! Cue the Christmas/Holiday carols of choice in the background please…
UPDATE #3: Canadian Payroll year end update for GP2010 was released on December 19th, 2013, both English and French. GP2013 was released December 20th, 2013.
Welcome to my annual “hey the tax tables are out” blog post! Like clockwork – or like death and taxes – yet another certainty is each year end there are tax table updates to apply! Here are the details for those Canadian Payroll users of Microsoft Dynamics GP! Special note to you GP2013 users as well…
First – an important note although I doubt this will affect anyone already: Dynamics GP 2013 RTM did not release with the 2013 tax rates! So in the unlikely event that you are considering upgrading to GP2013 immediately (since it’s launch yesterday!), I would recommend holding off until the first hot fix is released. The hotfix is expected the week of January 21, 2013. New clients – same goes for you… the RTM build has the 2012 tax rates and thus any payrolls run in it, will not reflect the new tax rates yet.
It’s a big day … and I’m a day late!
Microsoft Dynamics GP2013 has launched! Yay!

There is a ton of information out there already on the Microsoft sites and in the Microsoft Dynamics community so I won’t get into repeating a lot of what’s already been blogged about. Suffice to say: it’s a big day with the introduction of the first web client, some very cool new features and tons of excitement in the community about this release. Check it out!
Hello Jen, Thank you for responding so quickly and with so much detail!
Thank you for mentoring my team and me, and so much more… it’s a real pleasure working with you.
I really want you to know how much I appreciate your help on this. I know you’re scheduled and busy elsewhere, and it has been awesome to watch you collaborating anyway. If you ever decide to stop being happily self-employed, I hope you’ll consider [ ] as your next email address.
Hi Jen, Just want to thank-you for all your help and support this week, especially taking time away from your vacation…its greatly appreciated!
Hi Jen, Thanks so much for getting back to me so quick. You’re the best!!
I am happy you are on the team. Doubt we could get this done without you!
Thanks for all of you hardwork and efforts. In case I haven’t said it enough, we are happy to have you and you are doing a great job. I couldn’t have done this project without you!
Thanks for all of your help and effort on our project. Your knowledge and insight have been indispensable!
Thanks for the tutorial yesterday. What you showed me cut my process down from a day or two – to just a few hours! Thank you!
Thank you Jen. You have done an outstanding job. I’m really glad we found you!
