Year-End is upon us again, and now is the time for Dynamics GP users to make plans to install the year-end update and close out the year. The 2020 U.S. Year-end Update is targeted to be released around 11/20/2020 for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and 18.3.

The U.S. 2020 Year-end Update contains software changes to allow you to comply with 2020 filing requirements as well as the most recent fixes for Dynamics GP and other quality report fixes related to the payroll year-end. The update is all-inclusive and includes all prior service packs and hotfixes.

For Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 customers if you install the 2020 year-end update, you will have all the features noted in the October 2020 release.

If you’re running payroll from Dynamics GP, there are specific changes that impact payroll directly:

  • The IRS is releasing a new 1099 NEC form for the 2020 tax year. Non-Employee Compensation, which had been included in the 1099 MISC form, has been moved to its own form.
  • Payroll form changes
    • Payroll Wages for FFCRA report on W-2 Box 14
  • Updates for ACA reporting, form 1095-C
    • New ACA codes
    • Plan start month is required
    • Employee age printing on the form
    • New Line 17 Zip Code

Where can you download the Dynamics GP Year-End update?


Mainstream Support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 ended on 4/14/2020 which means you no longer receive tax and year-end updates. Reach out to Stoneridge Software to learn about your options.
