Notes from Red Wing Software President, Ken Hilton

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

Summer is now in full swing. I was reminded of this recently while enjoying one of my favorite summertime outdoor activities, golfing. We were finishing the thirteenth hole when we heard thunder in the distance. I quickly grabbed my smartphone and checked out the radar for the area. A thunderstorm that had not been there ten minutes earlier was now just to our north and heading southeast. It appeared we would be spared, so we kept playing. As we finished the last hole, the sky let loose and everyone scrambled for a safe place to spend the next hour.

I mention this as a reminder of how fast storms can erupt, and how important it is to make sure you’re prepared for unexpected events. Do you have a safe place to retreat to in a hurry when things get dangerous? Does everyone in your organization know how to recognize when to take action? Is all your important information backed up and stored off-site? Do you have a disaster recovery plan in case it is needed? I certainly hope you never have to deal with a serious emergency, but it is always a good idea to have a plan.

On this Independence Day, and for our friends to our north, Canada Day, please celebrate safely.

Affordable Care Act (ACA) Reporting for CenterPoint Payroll

Red Wing Software has released a new feature with CenterPoint Payroll that allows employers to track and report required ACA information for tax filing purposes.

The new feature allows employers to track ACA information so it will appear on forms 1094-C and 1095-C. Current CenterPoint Payroll users can now download and install the newest version, 9.18, even though the final versions of forms 1094-C and 1095-C will not be available until the week of December 21, 2015, when Red Wing Software releases the end-of-year tax forms and tax table updates. Customers will automatically be prompted to perform an update when the forms are ready.

If you do not currently use CenterPoint Payroll but are interested in purchasing it, please call 800-732-9464.
