An Update from the GP team at Microsoft

December 2015

 

Recently, the president signed a bill Path 2015 for tax relief.
Let's not jump to conclusions around it, as we all know, it has to be finalized and notification released, then we will determine what needs to be done.
At a glance, it may affect Fixed Assets depreciation values, but at this point, don't worry, we are watching it and will communicate something as soon as we know what is going on!

ACA Bug in Dynamics GP

December 2015

 

There is a bug that is affecting everyone using Dynamics GP to print their 1095-C (if you use Green Shades or Integrity Data's ACA product you won't need to worry)

Problem: GP will print a 1095-C even if the employee was inactive for the entire year, or never worked in the year at all.

Solution: After creating the year end wage file the below script will need to be ran so it only prints for people that actually had some sort of info in 2015.

 

delete from upr10111
where (MonthofCost_1='0' AND MonthofCost_2='0' AND MonthofCost_3='0' AND MonthofCost_4='0'and
MonthofCost_5='0' AND MonthofCost_6='0' AND MonthofCost_7='0' AND MonthofCost_8='0' AND

ACA Reporting with Integrity Data
Integrity Data's ACA Reporting enhances the payroll system in Microsoft Dynamics GP for both the basics and the challenges of IRS reporting that the Affordable Care Act now requires of employers. With the add-on to GP Payroll, employers can simplify generation of the yearly forms that, come early 2016, they will need to print for employees and fille with the IRS. Employers also get capabilities for internal monthly reporting
that many companies vulnerable to ACA penalties will need for ongoing analyses of how to avoid or minimize their ACA risk.

**this solution was previously Sypnio, but is now Integrity Data
