For today's post we will dive into Payroll as we have three new features coming in #GP2018R2.
The first feature is a new Start Date and End Date for each pay code in the Employee Pay Code Maintenance window. This is used when building the check run as to whether to include the selected pay codes. So if the check run is before the start date or after the end date, that pay code will not be included.
The second feature is a shared maximum benefit and deduction code in Payroll. A new window, Ded/Ben Shared Limit Setup, allows you to setup a calendar year maximum for multiple benefit and deduction codes. When the check run is processed, it will look at the year-to-date amount and compare it to the calendar year max in this new window.
The third feature is new totals print on the Payroll Check Register report for FICA. A new Total FICA Owed, Total Employee FICA owed, and totals for both FICA Medicare and FICA Social Security all print on the payroll check register report.
