Microsoft Year End Closing and New Year Setups

It is the time of year for Microsoft Dynamics GP customers that use the Payroll module to start planning for year-end closing and new year setups.  The first step in that process is to download and install the YE update/service pack.  The update was released November 18th, so it can be installed anytime between now and year end if it is done before you run your year end wage file.  I recommend installing it earlier in the month if possible, so it doesn’t compete with vacations and the year end crunch time.  Installing the update requires that everyone is out of GP and will likely take anywhere from 1 hour to a whole day depending on how many companies and workstations you have.  We have one client with over 30 databases, so just the utilities run through takes all day on a fast server.    GP2015 customers should download KB4528415 (version 14.00.1230) and GP2016 customers will need KB4528417 (version 16.00.0814).  Be [...]

GP 2019 South Carolina Withholding Tax Calculation is Incorrect

There was recently an unannounced correction to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2019 South Carolina withholding tax.  I am not sure if the error was discovered and corrected with the Round 2 or the Round 3 payroll tax update release; I can just tell you that I discovered it with the Round 3 tax update.  A client contacted me asking why their South Carolina’s withholding tax jumped after installing the Round 3 update.  This was a particular surprise because South Carolina was not one of the states listed on the update as having been included.  The last announced update affecting South Carolina was the original 2019 Round 1 payroll tax update that all users install after the payroll year end closing.    Looking at the screen shot above, you can see that GP incorrectly included amounts in the “On Excess Over” column with the Round 1 release and corrected itself on a later release by removing these amounts.  Had GP chosen to have positive Tax Amounts, then the excess amounts [...]

The Vendor and Customer Combiner and Modifier Utilities in GP

The Vendor Combiner/Modifier and Customer Combiner/Modifier officially became an option in the Sales and Purchasing Utilities menus with the release of GP2015.  Previously, these tools were only available in PSTL.  However, it recently became clear to me that many users are still surprised to find these options.  Whether users have just avoided going into the Utilities menus or their security settings prevented them from seeing this “new” utility, once they discover it, they almost immediately can come up with a list of customers or vendors they have been wanting to fix “forever.”  Do you have more than one Vendor IDs or Customer IDs for the same Vendor or Customer?  Have you had to remember which of the duplicates to use, inactivate one or mark one clearly as Do Not Use?  Now you can use the Combiner utility to merge a source (or the bad) Vendor/Customer into a destination Vendor/Customer (the one you want to keep).  All Work, Open and Historical transactions for the source Vendor/Customer get combined [...]
