For the 2013 year’s W-2 filing season, we had a customer with a payroll of hundreds of employees whose W-2 file was rejected by the Social Security Administration (SSA). There were a couple of informational errors, such as the submitter Employer Identification Number (EIN) and the employer EIN being the same, and a handful of social security numbers were questioned. Two critical errors were encountered: the RA record was flagged as coming through with a record type of PK instead of RA, and the sum of the RW records was said to not match the RT total record line for federal wage and federa

Another year passes and it is time to start discussing year-end closing procedures for the modules in Microsoft Dynamics GP. Now is the perfect time to review this information, just because it is only done once a year, and also to share information sent out by Microsoft.

In GP 2013, when printing payroll checks, the void message is no longer appearing on the earnings statements that are set to print as voided checks.

A customer brought an issue to our attention with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and exporting SmartLists to Excel. Using the Employee default to create a new Smartlist, if you add a column called “Vacation Accrual Amount”, in SmartList after that column is added, the values show up in SmartList just fine.

Microsoft has released the Payroll service pack for the 941 form changes from the IRS for the 2013 year.

There is not service pack for Microsoft Dynamics GP10.

Just a little background…in the code, Microsoft is rounding both employer and employee the same, but some customers might want these amounts tied out to the penny.
