Have You Taken Steps to Preserve Your NV1 Data?

It’s important for NV1 users to realize that keeping archived backups of your NV1 data files is NOT enough to preserve your financial information.

You may have several backup copies of your main financial data files. You may even have them properly spread across different media, e.g. CD, hard drive and USB storage. But do you have hardware that can open those archived files, along with a copy of the original program that created them?

Three things are required to access your archived NV1 data files. The correct hardware, an appropriate operating system, and the NV1 program. Without all three, your archived NV1 data files are useless. The best way to preserve your information is to convert your NV1 data files to NewViews 2 for Windows.

Important News for NewViews Payroll Users in Canada

Important news for NewViews Payroll users in Canada: We have been advised that the publication of Canadian payroll formulas and tax rates for 2016 (CRA Guide T4127) will be delayed, likely until mid-December 2015, due to the change in government.

Usually,  we receive this information around November 15, at which time it takes us approximately 1 month to:

  • review the information provided in CRA Guide T4127
  • review and update NewViews Payroll codes and tax tables for the upcoming year
  • test the updated Payroll codes and tax tables
  • release either a service pack or a new version of NewViews that includes updated Payroll codes and tax tables

This delay means we may not have enough time to release a new service pack or new version of NewViews in mid-December, as we would normally.  Please continue to check our website during the next few weeks for the most current status of Canadian Payroll for 2016.

NewViews and Windows 10

On July 29th, 2015, Windows 10 was released. Most users currently running Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 will be offered a free to upgrade to Windows 10 during the next 12 months. After that, Microsoft will begin charging for the upgrade.

NewViews has been tested for compatibility on Windows 10, and both NV1 and NV2 work as before on Windows 10 32-bit and 64-bit. There are, however, some privacy concerns to be aware of.

Microsoft would like to store your data in their cloud, and Windows 10 is designed for a mobile, cloud future. By default, Windows 10 will track and share the websites you visit, the purchases you make, the places you go and the words you type. You have the ability to control this data collection, but it takes some effort. During the Windows 10 upgrade process, you need to customize the privacy settings. If you don’t change them during the upgrade process, you can do so at the end of the upgrade. Otherwise, you will be operating with Microsoft’s default settings, which may not be as private as you would like! To adjust the privacy settings, go to “Express Settings”, where you will find several pages of options.

We suggest you search online for more information.  A few recommendations are Tech Republic’s “Windows 10 violates your privacy by default” or Beta News’ “The real price of Windows 10 is your privacy”.
