Microsoft released their 2023 Year End / Payroll Update a few weeks ago and we want to make sure all of our customers are aware of some important changes.

2023 Year-End Changes 

  1. There will be no changes to Payroll for Secure Act 2.0 (IRS Extended date to January 2026). If this is functionality you need in the product for automatically tracking of catch-up contributions for employees, please review Integrity Data Enhanced Retirement Plan for this additional functionality.
  2. The IRS is pushing for a business to file electronically, W-2, 1099, etc. Dynamics GP does not file Payables 1099’s electronically. Review this blog to help you prepare for 2023 year-end and electronic filing: Microsoft Dynamics GP: 1099 Changes to Expect – Get Ready for Year-End 2023
  3. If you still print Payables 1099 forms in Microsoft Dynamics GP, with the October 18.6 release all Payables 1099 forms (DIV, INT, MISC and NEC) will print with lines and can be printed directly on 8.5 x 11 blank paper. This is similar to what MS did with the 1099-NEC form in the 18.5 release. You no longer need to purchase forms at year end!!
  4. Fixed Assets – luxury auto depreciation changes

For affected customers that are on GP 18.5 or later, you will need to apply the 2023 Dynamics GP Year End Update. If you are on GP 18.4 or below, you will need to upgrade to the newest version of Dynamics GP (18.6) and apply the 2023 Year End Update.

A few things to note:

  • If you are using Greenshades, we still recommend you install the update.
  • If you have any ISV/3rd party customs, you will need to let us know as soon as possible if you want/need to update. ISV customs take an inordinate amount of time to update and be compatible.
