Are you prepared to meet upcoming year-end processing deadlines? As 2019 quickly comes to an end, it’s time to set up your EnterpriseOne systems and processes to meet and stay compliant with 1099 and US payroll reporting requirements.

For JD Edwards customers, most of the tasks can be performed using Accounts PayableHCM (Payroll, Time and Labor) and Address Book systems, as well as applying current ESUs to account for any legislative or regulatory changes that occurred during the year.

Updated 1099 software is available for customers running E1 9.0, 9.1 and 9.2; JDE customers can leverage the Change Assistant tool to determine which ESU to install, as well as install multiple ESUs simultaneously.

Overview: Year-End Processing Tasks

The 1099 form is an income tax reporting form that has several variations including 1099-DIV (dividends & distributions), 1099-INT (interest income) and 1099-MISC (miscellaneous income). Some of the tasks related to 1099 processing include:

  • Decide which method or combination of methods to use (A/P Ledger or G/L method)
  • Prepare internal records
    • Clear the work files from last year
    • Review and update the AAIs
    • W9 exception report
    • Voucher 1099 info update
  • Verify Supplier & Company Setup codes (for individual, N for non-corporate entity)
  • Verify all tax identification numbers, legal names
  • Take latest 1099 ESUs and deploy into test environment first for testing before pushing it to PD
  • Build and review the work files
  • Print 1099 Registers and perform any adjustments if required
  • Perform 1099 Reporting – Print forms (Pre-printed or BI publisher), Mailing & eFiling

1099 Documentation:

Employers who have paid wages to and withheld taxes from US-based employees use W-2 and W-3 forms to report to employees, Social Security Administration and IRS. Some of the tasks related to US Payroll year-end processing include:

  • Install the appropriate ESU
  • Verify the payroll history
  • Process rollovers
  • Verify employee names & addresses
  • Set up deductions, benefits & accruals (DBAs)
