General

  • We have addressed an issue that, in certain circumstances, prevented the ENTER key from working properly when searching the Idea Incubator within Accounting CS. Details
    This issue occurred when the Use Enter key to move between fields checkbox was marked in the System tab of the Setup > User Preferences dialog.

General - Payroll

  • We have addressed an issue that, in certain circumstances, caused the application to close when hours for COVID-19 special type pay items were entered in the Rapid tab of the Actions > Enter Batch Payroll Checks screen.

Payroll compliance

  • We have addressed an issue that, in certain circumstances, caused liability amounts on Form 941 to not match Schedule B. Details
    This occurred during processing periods when a payroll check was entered on which:
    • only COVID-19 sick leave wages were paid, and
    • FICA-SS pre-tax deductions were withheld.

    See the Form 941 2020: Covid-19 changes article for details about the changes and additions that were recently made to Form 941.
