W-2 file rejected by Social Security Administration – sum of RW records does not equal RT total record

Posted: May 29th, 2014

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

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SmartList Export to Excel values are 0

Posted: May 9th, 2013

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.   However, when you export the list to Excel the values for this column are zero in Excel. If you export this to Word, the values are there.

Payroll tax updates can take place throughout the year – it’s never necessarily limited to just the beginning of the new year.  With this in mind, it is very important to keep up with installing the latest tax updates at the proper time.

As easy as the automatic update is for taxes, a lot of users run into the error “Unhandled exception has occurred in a component in your application.  If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.”

FICA – Employer and Employee amounts don’t match due to rounding – Update 02-01-2013

Posted: Feb 22nd, 2013

This is an update to an issue submitted recently.  When running 2013 payrolls, some customers are seeing rounding issues on the check registers where the employer and employee FICA  Social Security amounts don’t match, off by pennies, when the rate is the same (both at  6.2 rate). 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.
