This patch also includes all items in earlier patches:

    Patch 2.17.03 - June 26, 2017
  • July 1, 2017 tax table changes for PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND and SASKATCHEWAN.
    Patch 2.17.02 - June 5, 2017
  • Payroll > Cheques/Deposit > Cheques > Detailed Laser Cheque: Added a new option: "Print employee address". Prior to this change, the employee address was always printed on the cheque. This new option allows the address to be omitted, with only the employee's name being printed. This option is initially turned on by default.
  • Yearly > Close Year: A Quebec RL-1 slip is now created for an employee if any box on the RL-1 slip will be non-zero. Previously, a slip was only created if YTD gross was greater than zero.
  • Periodic > General Ledger: Added a new G/L interface for the INMASS/MRP General Ledger system.
  • Periodic > General Ledger: Added a new G/L interface for Infor CSI 9 (Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine)).
  • Periodic > Customizer > Import Timecards (Easypay version):
    • Added new options for printing warning messages in the report log if any imported timecards will result in overpayments of vacation pay, sicktime, banked hours or banked dollars. These new options can be accesed by clicking the "More" (">>") button at the bottom of the window.
    • Added two new optional fields to the import file specifications:
      • Field #126: Set vacation dollar amount equal to vacation dollars owed? ("Y" or "N")
      • Field #127: Employee's last cheque? ("Y" or "N")
  • Periodic > General Ledger > Optional G/L Account Descriptions:
    • Added a new option to list the G/L descriptions for a specific department. This is in addition to the option to display the descriptions for all departments.
    • Fixed an over-flow error that occurred when the number of G/L accounts exceeded 32700.
  • Periodic > Recurring Timecards > Listing: Fixed a bug that prevented the recurring timecard listing from being printed when the the option to select a timecard date range was turned on for the regular timecard listing.
  • Periodic > ROE > Edit: Fixed two issues that in rare cases might result in errors for the values that are calculated for block 15:
    • Fixed: A calculation error might occur if the last period worked was in the prior year and "TRM" has not been entered beside the terminated periods for the current year in the EI record.
    • Fixed: A calculation error might occur if an ROE is created after closing a Quick Cheque payroll in the first pay period of the new year, but prior to closing the Regular payroll for the first pay period of the new year. Note: this fix will take effect after the next closing of a Quick or Regular pay period.
