Canadian Payroll 2021 Year End Update

In all the 2020 excitement, I realized I never posted about the 2020 Year End update. I think 2020 for me was all about getting through day to day things and I just forgot about this. Anyway, I’m back to blogging semi-regularly again and it’s that time of year again.

The CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) released their T4127 guide for January 1, 2022 very late this year (December 14th). Typically Microsoft (& other software vendors) get in late November to allow them adequate time to update their software for the new year tax changes.

Update 3: December 22, 2021 – The CanPay update is ready. See below.

ROE issue in Canadian Payroll

This post is about an issue that I found when testing the ROE (Record of Employment) functionality for a client in Dynamics GP. (Since “ROE” is a generic term, this post is specifically about a bug in the Dynamics GP Canadian Payroll module). I opened a case for it and it was quickly confirmed and written up as a quality issue (#91928 in case you need to add yourself or your customer to the list of affected clients).

Cdn Payroll Basic Personal Amount calculator

If you are reading this and a user of Microsoft Dynamics GP and Canadian Payroll, you’ll likely have already read my previous post where I’ve indicated that the Canadian Payroll module will not automatically calculate the Basic Personal Amount (Federal) for you.

If you are reading this and are not a user of Dynamics GP: don’t worry. The information in this post is generic and should be able to be used to calculate the Federal BPA for employees regardless of the payroll software you are using.

In this post, I’m simply going to outline a way to do the calculation and have included a spreadsheet for you to download if you want a quick starting point to manually determine what an employee’s Basic Personal Amount (Federal) should be, when they fall in the income range of $150,473 to $214,368.

Canadian Payroll 2019 YE Update Round 2

Microsoft released a “Round 2” update for Canadian Payroll for Dynamics GP. What is a round 2 update? It’s a change that wasn’t in the first update in December! Typically we don’t see this in Canadian Payroll but the CRA made a relatively last minute change to the federal basic personal amount (BPA for short) that necessitated an update. As it turns out, the update does not address that change from the CRA but it does fix 3 other bugs.

Here’s what you need to know and do if you are a Dynamics GP Canadian Payroll user.

No Canadian Payroll 2019 Mid-Year Tax Update!

There’s no #TipTuesday today since I had website issues over the weekend and was unable to access it to prepare something. So, this will be a form of a tip in lieu of another topic!

There will be no mid-year tax update for Canadian Payroll for Dynamics GP this year, zippo, nada, zilch! Imagine that, not a single jurisdiction has a tax change this mid-year. That’s got to be a first!

So, enjoy your July 1st without a tax change!

Mass Update CPY Basic Personal Exemption

Last week, I was asked if I knew of a quick way to update the Basic Personal Exemption amount in Dynamics GP Canadian Payroll. It’s not the first time I’ve been asked as it’s relatively common for an “oops” on the CPY Year End Close routine to either forget to update the personal exemption amounts or that somehow the wrong amounts are in there. So, today’s #TipTuesday is a short one: what’s the quickest (& safest) way to update this if it was wrong on multiple people?

Cdn Payroll T4 XML & Multiple Employers

Today’s #TipTuesday is too late for 2018 filings but hopefully those this applies to will file it away for next year. The post is as a result of a question from a consultant who works for one of the Dynamics GP VARs in the Toronto area, whose client asked how to get 1 XML T4 file for multiple employers.

TL;DR version: it does that out of the box although the UI doesn’t make it seem like it would! Since some people may stumble across this post and use other ERP systems, this post is specific to Dynamics GP and the Canadian Payroll module.
