• A longtime client that is a distributor has been using Dynamics SL and its predecessor, Solomon III, since 1987.  They have kept their business simple and in the past, had been able to adequately manage their business with Order Management, Inventory, and the core financial modules.  But over the course of the past decade, there has been a dramatic shift in their supply chain as domestic manufacturers have disappeared and the only manufacturers left are in China (even the Tool & Die Companies that make the machinery used by our client’s manufacturers only exist in China).  read more…

  • FUTA Tax Rate Adjustment

    The FUTA tax rate changed on July 1st from .8% to .6% on earnings under $7,000. Because of how Dynamics SL calculates deductions, we advised most clients to leave the rate at .8% for the remainder of the year. If the rate was changed on July 1st, then Dynamics SL capped the FUTA deduction based on the .6% rate times 7,000 = $42. Anyone that had over $42 in YTD FUTA computed did not get any more tax withheld. It did not take the wages below 7,000 times .6%.

    This necessitates an adjustment to be made at the end of the year to correct the FUTA tax expense and liability. We have created a script to calculate the correct amounts by employee. Please let us know if you need us to run this script.
