It's that time of year again and we have put together a newsletter that reflects some of the changes going on.
On the First Option side, the upgrade to 7.3 has been completed and went as planned. This year has seen a big uptick in our application hosting services and we expect more in 2017 as people look more to the Cloud. We have also welcomed back a number of former Daprex customers who left the software for a new system but found the Daprex system much more robust with better database capabilities.
As of the writing of this newsletter there are no programming changes necessary for the 1099's. (Box 11 and 12 for Foreign tax paid are blank and no longer used on this form)
Instructions for running 1099's are listed below for your convenience.
Also, as of this year there are new deadlines for filing W-2s and 1099s, please see below for more information regarding this.
On the IBM front, IBM will no longer provide maintenance for the Power 5 Systems as of January 2019. IBM also is no longer supporting
Client Access on Windows 10. If you are on Windows 10 you will need to install
and we have provided the instructions.
For year end, we have some sample knowledge base entries that you may find helpful and have added our holiday schedule for 2017.
And lastly, some important news from the Department of Labor regarding the Overtime Rule that was set to take effect December 1st, 2016.
Have a wonderful holiday season and don't forget about our "Refer a Friend" Program!
