2015 is Fast Approaching It's End, Prepare for North American Year End, 2016 Year Begin



As 2015 is coming to a close, we would like to recommend you start preparing your Year End (YE) activities for North American (United States, Canada, and Mexico) Legislation.  
Whether this is your first EBS Payroll Year End, or you are thoroughly seasoned, you could most likely benefit from a few Year End reminders.

We have created a one stop note for your reference during North American Year end: North American Year End 2015 / 2016 Year Begin Patch Information and Useful Links (Doc Id 2079000.1)


In this note, we have listed patching information, Year end user guides that are updated during the course of the release of the year end patches, and other Year End information and alerts.

We'd like to make you aware of our Year End Advisor Webcast recordings, which you can download and review at your convenience.
These year end webcasts include topics such as patching, balancing, running the Year End PreProcess, printing the employee tax forms, and producing the magnetic media for government filing.  Keep in mind, new patch numbers change from year to year, but the functionality described in the webcasts typically remains the same.

You can access recorded webcasts on My Oracle Support, via the notes:  E-Business Suite HCM Advisor Webcast Schedule and Archived Recordings (Doc ID 1455851.1) or Oracle E-Business Suite Advisor Webcast (Doc ID 1455369.1).   Please note, you can find ANY archived webcast via these basic steps, so take a look around while you're there.



  1. Choose product area  > E-Business Suite, then select a product to get started > for example, click on E-Business Suite HCM
  2. Then choose the tab for Archived webcasts applicable year, for example: Archived 2013
  3. Place your cursor over the webcast title to see the details of the conference. Click on 'Recording' to access the recorded webcast. Click on 'pdf' to download the pdf for review.


Please also, access our EBS: Payroll community to collaborate with others on your year end needs.
Happy Year End processing !
