  • 1.  MS Dynamics GP Year End update 2021

    Posted 9 days ago
    Hello,

    Our version of GP currently is MS 18.3.1200 (2020).



    We would want to current year tax update done. Can the latest upgrade be installed on this version without having to go through a huge upgrade?

    Thank you for your time,

    Maya Murali

    @Maya Murali  i guess it depends on your definition of "huge"......     It is a dictionary change so you will need to contact ANY ISV solutions you have to ensure they have the update available (most do by now).   When you do the YE update it will move you to 18.4 and will include the Oct 2021 release as well.

    Sorry for not giving you a direct answer, but without knowing you environment, it's tough to be specific.  All-in-all, we've seen that the 18.4 release hasn't been a huge time drain when coming from 18.3

    Thank you Michael. When I meant "huge", we were told by our consultants that the tax update will be an update in all modules and includes a revamp of GP. This was not what were were expecting. We do not use the FA module . Essentially we were looking for only a 1099 update. If it is not a huge time drain, we should be able to move form 18.3 to 18.4 easily. I shall convey this to my resource. Thank you.

    PLEASE don't tell me they followed up this comment by saying "you should look at BusinessCentral"......

    Also, there have been multiple "updates" --- in Oct 18.4 was released, in Nov the YE update was released (this would include the 18.4 release as well) - this is the release that has the 1099 form/info updates.   In addition there is a PR Year End update, this is for PR info only and does not require an update to 18.4

    This may be confusing, but hopefully you can follow.

    I don't think you need to install the 18.4 year-end update to install the latest tax tables. There were no form changes this year so the year-end update is not needed for them. If you produced payroll year-end forms last year, you should be good this year.

    If you have Payables, you definitely need 18.4.1384 (the year-end update from November).
