1099 Processing

Menu Path:  Fund Accounting > Periodic Routines > Periodic Processing > 1099 Processing

The options on the 1099 Processing menu enable you to copy accounts payable payment information into work files and maintain these files for generating 1099-MISC, 1099-G, 1099-INT, and 1099-NEC forms.

The 1099 processing options are discussed in the general order you would follow. Maintenance and report options can be used at any time to change and review files. All of the options in these sections are from the 1099 Processing menu, except for Modify 1099 Transactions and Clear 1099 Amounts, which are on the Fund Accounting > Periodic Routines > Periodic Processing menu.

Once you are satisfied with the contents of your files, print the 1099 forms, and create the electronic files. You can also audit changes made to your work files and purge audit records and work files from previous years. 

Prerequisites

Before working with 1099 files, complete the following steps:

  1. Print Accounts Payable checks for any outstanding payables. Outstanding payables may cause incorrect 1099 amounts for vendors.
  2. Run the Backup Fund Accounting to Disk option from the System Administration menu.
  3. Verify that the 1099 Types table contains the required 1099 Form and Box codes. Refer to the Fund Accounting Reference Tables section.
  4. Verify that records in your Vendor List table have the correct 1099 Form and Box codes, including those for the 1099-MISC, 1099-G boxes, and 1099-NEC boxes. Continue to report the Non-Employee Compensation data as Form 1099-MISC, box 7 in the Vendor List.  The Create 1099 Work file reports the information on the 1099-NEC.
