2016 Canadian Payroll version 109 (July 1, 2016) for NV1 has been released. This update is required by NV1 payroll users in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island.
The year 2015 ends on a Thursday, with Friday falling on Jan 1, 2016.
If your weekly or bi-weekly pay period ends on Friday, Jan 1, 2016, and you hand out pay checks on the Friday, the checks must be dated January 1, 2016.
You must be consistent when dating your pay checks! If it’s always on a Friday, it must remain on a Friday.
You should NOT change the date of these checks to Thursday Dec 31, 2015. Doing so would create an extra pay on the employees’ T4s for 2015, and employees would be short a pay on their T4s for 2016.
When you have weekly payroll, this issue will occur every 5th or 6th year. When you have bi-weekly payroll, it will occur every 11th year.
Furthermore, with weekly payroll there will be 53 pay periods every 5th or 6th year. With bi-weekly payroll, there will be 27 pay periods every 11th year.

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.
This release provides January 2015 payroll for Canada and the US.
