Michael's Favorite New Features

Once installed you can see a 1099 Toolkit drop down menu on the ribbon.

Key Capabilities (from website)

  • Automatically identify and correct vendor Federal ID issues

  • Review all reportable 1099 information in one view and easily make corrections right on the spot

  • Preview all 1099 information by vendor before printing

  • Print and upload 1099s to the FIRE portal from Business Central

  • Print in 1096s - not in Business Central

  • New features make transitioning to and managing new 1099 NEC reporting requirements simple and easy

1099 Tool Kit

  • That being said, it looks as if in the future when the IRS releases new documents you can add these documents through the 1099 Tool Kit app and then “recode” the old form to the new form.

  • Has a report to show any issues with the Federal ID.

    • For example, you’ll see customers with missing Federal IDs, customers with duplicated Federal IDs, customers whose federal ID is not 9 characters long, etc.

    • In native BC, I believe you can use filtered lists to see which customers don’t have Federal IDs assigned but that’s all you’ll be able to see.

    • Vendor Prep Information Page corrects the following BC issues:

      • The minimum amount paid for a vendor to receive a 1099 is $600. Business Central does not recognize this amount and sends all vendors setup as a 1099 a 1099 form regardless of amount. Vendor could have been paid $100 and they will get a 1099 form.

      • If a vendor was charge $2,000 on an invoice but only $1,000 is reportable Business Central will print a 1099 for the entire $2,000.

  • Has an Information Summary Report that shows what 1099s will be reported, how much the amount is, an what will be printed.

  • Has a 1099 Toolkit Vendor Summary report that shows the individual lines that are associated with 1099s that will be printed.
