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.

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.

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!
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?

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.

Will you look at that? It’s nearly Christmas and year-end and that means it’s time for some tax updates. Today the last of the updates were released for US English and they cover GP 2015, GP 2016 and GP 2018. Hopefully if you are reading this and still running GP 2013, you’ve got a backup plan in place!

I’m going to file this post under “I’m glad I was late writing it” because in the time that we were notified of a tax change, to the time Dynamics GP tax update code was ready for download, to yesterday’s news that Ontario has cancelled their planned update, things have changed!
