Are you ready for Year End? As we all know, Year End is a very busy time of patching, processing, sending out employee tax reports, and governmental filings. Oracle Support and Oracle Development want to help ensure a successful year end for your business.
Timing - The legislative deadlines are still a few months away, but here is a quick reminder of the timing:
| United States
Year End forms are due to all employees by January 31, 2014, followed by Federal and State Filings
||Employee Year End forms and the government Year End Magnetic filings are due at the end of February
||Various employee reports and government filings are due between January 31st and May 31
Patching Information - Refer to the following notes for important patching information that you’ll need for Year End. As a reminder, the current Roll up Patch (RUP) is a mandatory requirement for Year End processing in the Oracle Payroll localizations delivered by Product Development legislations and US Federal HR products. So you want to be prepared by having the latest RUP patch already tested & applied.
