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.

Canadian Payroll 2012 Year End Tax Update

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!

It’s a big day … and I’m a day late!

Microsoft Dynamics GP2013 has launched!  Yay!


Here is a link to the launch portal on Customersource: click here

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!

Dynamics GP Technical Airlift 2012 – Web Client part 1

Tuesday was the unofficial first day of the conference for me with the agenda being one of two things for those who chose to come a day early.  There was a sales presentation for those on the business development side and there was technical training on the web client for the rest of us.

Generally you have to pay for training but due to the importance of this product release and the new content, Microsoft put this training on for free – which was awesome.  They really want to make sure the Partner channel is informed and ready for the web client specifically, and understand the “stack” dependencies to be able to troubleshoot it when it does release.

Cdn Payroll 2012 Mid-Year Tax Update

… Otherwise known as OMG it’s already July????  I talked to two clients today and yesterday about this and both of them forgot too… so apparently I’m not the only one not paying attention to time these days!

Yes, I, too, fell into the trap this year of letting time merrily fly by without realizing I didn’t blog about the Cdn Payroll tax updates for mid year.

So, now to the not-so-new-news!  Yes there is mid-year 2012 tax update as there is every year, and this year the provinces affected are: Ontario and Nova Scotia.

There is only one bug fix in this update which is for Quebec employees, QPIP exceeding the maximum limit based on rounding in certain situations.  I don’t know much about that one, that’s just what’s in the notification email I got when the update was published. (more…)

Free Stuff for GP!

(updated with more information Sun March 25, 2012)

You read that correctly!  Microsoft has decided to change the way they work with some of their utilities and tools.  Previously there were charges to get access to tools or utilities like Customer Modifier and Customer Combiner (and Vendor, Account, Item etc.).  On the partner side, we had to purchase those outside of the normal ordering processes (they weren’t “modules” like ordering something like Integration Manager was).  They want to streamline that to eliminate some of their Direct Billing policies and that means Dynamics GP customers win!
