Back by popular demand… Microsoft has created a Microsoft Dynamics GP 2020 Year-End Blog series, and what a year this will be! There are a lot of changes to talk about this year. Typically with an election year, we do not see a lot of movement, but of course, like anything else, 2020 is an odd year and we have LOTS of change.
After this year-end, most customers with the template issue, Payables form change and Payroll, will all will be current on year-end updates which means it will be BUSY for everyone to get all this done in a short period of time, so we need patience to get thru everything and planning is key.
To make this easier, the Microsoft Dynamics GP Support Team will be publishing blog articles with year-end closing information to assist you with planning for a smooth year-end close. These articles include general questions about year-end processes for that module and any changes that may affect your Year-End processes for the 2020 year.
Current Schedule of upcoming blog posts:
November 17 – General Ledger
November 18 – U.S. Payroll
November 19 – W-2 Tips and Tricks
November 24 – Electronic W-2 (EFW2) for a successful filing
November 25 – Fixed Assets
December 1 – Payables Management
December 2 – Payables Management NEW 1099-NEC
December 3 – Inventory
December 8 – Analytical Accounting
December 9 – Receivables Management
December 10 – Affordable Care Act (ACA)
Note: The blog article will be directly linked to the above schedule as the articles are published. Dates are subject to change.
