Can I Prepare in Advance for 1099 Printing?

Yes you can. Print and review the 1099 Preview Report now. The 1099 Preview Report will include every vendor who is marked as a 1099 Vendor in Vendor Maintenance, whether he was paid this year or not.

The 1099’s will print only for vendors whose Year-to-Date payments in the calendar year

2014 exceed the total entered in the AP Setup screen (should be $600):

Can 1099 Figures Be Changed?

Yes they can. 1099 figures can be incorrect if check dates were wrong, or if a 1099 box number is not included on every voucher for the 1099 vendors. If the figures are incorrect on the 1099 Preview Report, they can be adjusted two ways:

  1. Turn on Initialize Mode. On SL 2011 and SL 2015, Initialize Mode can be found here. On older versions, look on the Application Options menu.

Initialize Mode 1099 SL

  1. With Initialize Mode checked ON, go to Vendor Maintenance and enter the correct figures. If you are unable to edit the figures with Initialize mode on, ask your administrator for rights, or ask an administrator to make the changes for you. The Sysadmin login will always have the rights to complete this task.

Vendor Maintenance in SL

  1. If you do not know the correct 1099 amounts for the vendor and/or the number of vendors are large, the voucher box numbers can be updated in SQL. The AP Integrity Check can then be used to recalculate 1099’s. (Contact Brittenford support for help.)
