Payroll Software Suite
Source code is the key to extending the value of your investment in your SBT/Accpac/Sage Pro Series or Vision Point accounting software. You can rest assured that there is still a large and thriving community of end users, developers, and consultants dedicated to Pro Series and Vision Point - many of whom have grown up with the product and know it inside and out.
Our 2024 Payroll Software Suite supports SBT/ACCPAC/Sage Pro Series, versions 7.4 and above, and all versions of Vision Point 10. Older versions can be accommodated on an ad-hoc basis.
Here are the details:
Federal Tax Update
The 2024 tax brackets were announced recently, which will result in adjustments to the schedules and/or formulas used to calculate federal withholding. The Social Security wage cap has been adjusted to $168,600, up from $160,200. Your subscription also includes W-2 printing and electronic filing, and improved code to support the current W-4 format that was updated in 2020. The IRS is looking to sunset the previous withholding method based on allowances, and in response we've included a little toolkit that you can use to simplify the process of determining withholding for your employees.
The 941 form still contains the recently-added temporary lines for information related to pandemic relief, adjusted slightly due to the expiration of some programs. We support the traditional (permanent) fields which can be combined with your additional figures and submitted online. Unemployment wage limits and minimum wage rates are also updated for all supported states, and a utility is included to manage W-2 Box 12 Health Insurance cost reporting.
State Tax Updates
More and more states are adding requirements in addition to state income tax withholding, including various state and local assessments for transit taxes, training taxes, and paid family/medical leave. Many states are also beginning to require e-filing for employers with as few as 10 employees. Because all of these states are not needed by all subscribers, we have broken out the state updates as separate products. Four states - CA, OR, WA, and CT - are more complex than the others and are priced separately. For the six states - TX, NH, FL, NV, TN, WY - that have no withholding requirements, no state update is necessary. We support six states for Vision Point and 23 states for Pro Series. Other states can be accommodated as needed. We also provide a spreadsheet to calculate withholding for several states, with explanatory notes that go beyond the help provided in your accounting software.
The IRS has revised the 1099-MISC and created a new form, 1099-NEC, that's used exclusively for reporting Non-Employee Compensation. If you use Accounts Payable and issue 1099s to independent contractors, you'll need this product.
ACA Data Manager
There are several new Offer Codes related to HRA (Health Reimbursement Arrangement) coverage. The affordability threshold has changed slightly, and we have added some guidance to help with code selection. The reporting deadline this year is February 28 for paper filers ,and April 1 for E-filers. Paper forms must be furnished to employees by March 1. Note that E-filing is now required for employers with 10 or more employees to report.
The ACA Data Manager extracts your employee list from VP, Pro, or other open systems, provides an interface to fill in the relevant data, and print the forms to either printer or PDF. E-filing requires third party support and will be quoted on demand.
