Dynamics GP Tax Updates for December 2019

Please note the following important items for Dynamics GP Canadian payroll users:

Dynamics GP Issues

  1. When installing the tax update, the indexation factors are incorrect for Alberta (AB) and Saskatchewan (SK). Make sure these are changed to 1.00000 before running the Reset Employee Master process.
    The indexation factors are found on the Payroll Reset File window.
    Routines > Year End File Reset > Tax Credit Indexation Factors.
    If you have already run this process and did not change the Index factors, you can run the following scripts against the company database:
  • UPDATE CPY10105
    SET PBasicPersonalAmount=’19369.00000′ where PBasicPersonalAmount=’19834.00000’and PJurisdiction=’AB’
  • UPDATE CPY10105
    SET PBasicPersonalAmount=’16065.00000′ where PBasicPersonalAmount=’16290.00000’and PJurisdiction=’SK’
  1. The tax amount for BC is rounding up to 10,950. $1 will not affect taxes, but if you want to make it correct, please run the following script against the company database:
  • UPDATE CPY10105
  • SET PBasicPersonalAmount = ‘10949.00000’ WHERE PJurisdiction = ‘BC’ and PBasicPersonalAmount = ‘10950.00000’
  1. Round 2 is planned for mid-January.
    1. CRA released a late change after we released. It looks like customers with employees who have income over $150,473 will require the update, as the basic personal amount will be a calculated amount unique to the individual.
    2. CPP maximum is going over the amount by .90 cents. It should stop at 2898.00.
    3. Please note once the December update is installed, you cannot update to any version until this Round 2 is installed.
  1. GP18.2 only – you may receive an error when you launch Utilities.

Tax Updates
Go to your code folder location where GP is installed, you may find a caerr.cnk file, delete or rename it. Then you will be able to launch without error message. This is a language chunk that is not needed for this update.

Third Party Product Issues

  1. Beware of the default paths when installing third party Products. It defaults to a folder called GP.  That’s great if it is a new install, otherwise you will need to browse to GP2018(20??).
  2. Encore Products:
    1. When updating ePaystub, change the set file dictionary from EPS_1800.DIC to EPS_1802.DIC. This can be changed either before or after you install ePaystub, but before you log into GP.
    2. ePaystub T4s – there will be a new T4 released in January. You will not be able to print T4s until you receive this. All Clients registered for ePaystub will have this sent to them. If you require instructions on how to import this report, please let us know.
    3. When updating Paycode Mass Update (PMU) you need to delete the PMU.DIC from the code folder before installing.
  1. Mekorma Payment Hub:
    When updating Mekorma for Payables, it appears the checkbook setup EFT field defaults to check Face/Overflow Stub. Change it back to Dynamics GP Report Writer (if you are using GP Word templates).
