FUTA Tax Rate Changes as of July 1, 2011

We now have one more change to payroll tax rates and procedures that will cost most small businesses more in increased time than any savings they might realize from the decrease in the tax itself.

As of July 1, 2011, the rate for Federal Unemployment will decrease from .8% to .6% - which amounts to a reduction of $ 14. per employee, per year.

However, since the rate is in effect only for those wages paid after July 1, all employees who have already earned up to the $ 7,000 annual maximum will already have been subject to the $ 56. annual tax for 2011.

So, count on having to run extra reports and complete extra lines on the annual Federal Tax Return with likely the same tax that would have been due without the change.

Three Dynamics GP Users for a Buck

It used to be - a LONG time ago, you could get something for a dollar - A cup of coffee and a donut, for sure - maybe even a cheap lunch special if you weren't a very fussy eater. These days, it is REALLY hard to find anything for one dollar. But, and only till the special ends in June, Microsoft will trade one 'George Washington' for Microsoft Dynamics GP Software - as many as three users, either the Business Essentials (BE) or the Advanced Management (AM) Bundles.

Dynamics GP BE normally sells for $ 2,250 per user, and GP AM normally sells for $ 3,980 per user, so three users are worth up to $ 11,940 at regular prices. And the bundles come with LOTS of functionality - BE includes General Ledger, Payables, Receivables, Inventory, Sales Order and Purchasing Order Processing, Fixed Assets, Bank Reconciliation and a lot more. The AM Bundle includes everything in BE PLUS additional modules for Manufacturing, Distribution and Service. Your only commitment is for three years of software enhancement, payable on an annual basis, which includes receiving the new Dynamics GP Version 2010 when it is released in May.

And - the best part - this special is open to ALL organizations that do not currently own Dynamics GP software, so it is "OK" if you already own RealWorld or Great Plains Accounting or whatever.....

Free Protection for Home PC from Microsoft

Since last Fall, Microsoft has offered a free program that offers Virus, Spyware and Malware Protection for your home PC. Yes, free to download, free to install, free updates (and not just for 30 or 60 days) - totally free.

Microsoft Security Essentials is available on the Microsoft Web Site at http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

And, if you have used Microsoft Forefront Client Security for your business computers, MSE will look very familiar - they are very closely related.

So, if you haven't been offered anything free that didn't come with strings attached, try Microsoft Security Essentials.

Payroll Tax Table Updates for 2010

There is a bit of confusion caused by the IRS Federal Income Tax Tables for 2010, which have more individual levels for tax withholding than in previous years. While Microsoft Dynamics GP has more than enough space to enter the entire table, current versions of Passport and RealWorld Accounting Software do not have enough spaces.
A big concern, or a minor inconvenience?
A couple of things to consider. First, an employee who earns $ 30,000 - Single with one exemption - Paid twice a month. If we don't update the IRS tax tables AT ALL, and continue to use the April, 2009 rates - The employee will be underwithheld by $ 4.71 per pay, or $ 113.04 for all of 2010.
As the old saying goes "Pretty close for Government Work".
Second, if we DO enter the new tables but just stop entering information when Passport or RealWorld run out of lines, we will only be underwithholding by 2% on employees that earn over $ 375,700 ($ 381,400 if married). That level likely eliminates a fairly large percentage of the employees.
Finally, Passport will be releasing an update to their latest Versions that will expand the Federal tax Tables to make your withholdings "just right."
