***When you apply round 2 the Basic Personal Amount (BPA) does not automatically change on all your employees as that typically happens during a year end reset of masters.
Below is a script that will blanket change your employees. For employees over the $150,000, you will need to manually adjust their record/ BPA.
Update CPY10105/*P_CPY_SETP_Employee_Tax_Credits*/set PBasicPersonalAmount='13229.00000' where PBasicPersonalAmount='12298.00000'and PJurisdiction='CA'
Notes on the release:
FIXED IN ROUND 2 - Prior to the reset masters process, you should change the Tax Credit Indexation Factors to 1.00000 for AB-Alberta and SK - SaskatchewanIf you have already reset masters and notice the Basic Personal amount is indexed incorrectly, you can change it with this sample script.
set PBasicPersonalAmount='19369.00000' where PBasicPersonalAmount='19834.00000'and pjurisdiction='AB'
set PBasicPersonalAmount='16065.00000' where PBasicPersonalAmount='16290.00000'and pjurisdiction='SK'
FIXED IN ROUND 2 - On the 18.2 version only, you may receive this error when you launch Utilities:
Go to your code folder location (where GP is installed, you may find a caerr.cnk file, delete or rename it. Then you will be able to launch without error message. This is a language chunk that is not needed for this update.
FIXED IN ROUND 2
The CPP maximum withheld is over by $.90 cents.It should stop at $2898.00 and we are going to $2898.90.This will be fixed in the Round 2 update due out by 1/15/2020.
FIXED IN ROUND 2- Script still needs to be run if you have already closed the year, check your T4's carefully.
Review your T4's, carefully. If you notice an issue where the EI Insurable Earrings and CPP Pensionable Earnings are printing last years (2018) maximum, do the following:
2018 MaximumEI = $51,700CPP= $55,900
2019 MaximumEI = $53,100CPP= $57,400
2020 Maximum (for reference)EI = $54,200CPP= $58,700
Have a good back up of the company database.
Run the below script to correct the maximum.
update CPY40101 set PEIInsEarnings24 = case when PEmploymentIncome14 > 53100 then 53100 else PEmploymentIncome14 end
where PEIInsEarnings24 ='51700.00000' and PYear='2019'
update CPY40101 set PCPPPensionEarn26 = case when PEmploymentIncome14 > 57400 then 57400 else PEmploymentIncome14 end
where PCPPPensionEarn26 ='55900.00000' and PYear='2019'
We are down to the 'last' full working week of the year, crazy where 2019 went!
Good news this year with Canadian Payroll, there are no table changes needed, below are the list of changes in the update.
We plan to release this as all one update, including RL-1 and form changes for Quebec. This way it is less hassle with installs, etc.All Quebec information has been approved and below are the numbers you will need:
Software Development Number for XML - RQ-19-01-177RL-1 Slip Authorization number - FS1901207 (enter in the Payroll T4/R1 Print window)
The target release is by 12/20, but hope for sooner, it is touch and go here day by day so a lot is changing and hard to pin point, but I'm going with the later and then hope to deliver you an early Christmas present. :-).

**This will be translated to French
• The Year End Close process moves all your current year data into the Last Year (LY) tables and it doesn't take the date into consideration. For this reason it is very important that you complete ALL 2019 Payrolls (step 1) and then complete at least through the year end file reset (step 5) before doing any 2020 payrolls.• It is vital that you install the Year-End Update before the Year End Reset (Steps 4 and 5) because you are prompted during the Year End Reset to update Basic Personal Amounts. If you miss this you will need to restore from a backup.• When you do the Year End Reset it changes the Basic Personal Amounts for employees. Depending on the Province it will either add a fixed amount or increase the amount by an indexation factor as determined by the Provincial Authority.• This is an all-inclusive update.
