How to Setup and Process 1099's in Dynamics 365 Business Central

Originally posted on December 5, 2019

1099 Vendor Setup

Setting up a 1099 vendor in BC is easy.  Simply navigate to the vendor and open the Vendor Card.

Within the Payments Fast tab select the IRS 1099 Code for the vendor and enter their Federal ID No.  Selecting their Tax Identification Type is optional.

Transaction Processing

When entering transactions for the vendor (Purchase Invoice/Purchase Credit Memo) the IRS 1099 Code will automatically be added to the transaction under the Shipping and Payment Fast Tab.  The code may be changed to a different IRS 1099 Code or removed for this transaction if it’s not truly needed.

Within the lines section the IRS 1099 Liable field will be automatically checked if an IRS 1099 Code is assigned to a document.  If the line item is not 1099 liable you can simply uncheck this field.

Once the transaction is posted within the Vendor Ledger Entries window you will see that the IRS 1099 Code and IRS 1099 Amount will be automatically populated.  

*Note: if your payment to the vendor includes discounts the IRS 1099 Amount will not reflect the discounted amount paid. Rather it will show the full 1099 amount and the discount will be taken into account when the 1099 is printed. You will see this in my screenshots later. 


Vendor 1099 Information

To review the 1099 vendor amounts you can use the Vendor 1099 Information report.  Search for Vendor 1099 Information from the ‘Tell Me What You Want Me To Do’ search

Once you have the Vendor 1099 Information window open you can filter by a specific vendor number (optional) and a date (required).

1099 Statistics

Another way to review the vendors 1099 information is by reviewing the 1099 Statistics window.  Vendor Card > Navigate > History > 1099 Statistics

The 1099 Statistics window offers an overview of the unique 1099 Codes and amounts for the vendor selected.

1099 Corrections

Corrections to vendor 1099 amounts can be done within the Vendor ledger entries window.  Within this window you can review the list of invoices and assign the IRS 1099 Code and amount.  Click on the ‘Edit List’ option to modify any of the 1099 Amounts or IRS Codes.

Printing 1099’s

The 1099 reports are separated by 1099 categories, so you’ll need to process each on separately. 
          · Vendor 1099 Div – dividends and distributions
          · Vendor 1099 Int – interest income
          · Vendor 1099 Misc – miscellaneous income

Once you have report options window open enter in the Calendar Year (required) you are processing 1099’s for and you can additional filter by a specific vendor number (optional) if you wish. If you would like to run a test report you can simply toggle on the Test Print option.

*Note: The report will not have any headers to tell you what the information means, the intention is that this would be printed on a 1099 form.

1099 Form Boxes

The 1099 Form Boxes window stores the Minimum Reportable amounts for 1099’s to be printed. The minimum reportable amount should match up to the IRS threshold on amounts of money that needs to be paid to a vendor in order for the vendor’s income to be reported.  

In the 1099 Form Boxes window you will find the 1099 codes and their minimum reportable amounts.  Click on the ‘Edit List’ option to modify any of the amounts.

My DynamicsCon experience

DynamicsCon is a first-of-its-kind, free virtual learning experience for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (D365) and Power Platform users and professionals. Although it came out of the blue it was put together by a stellar team and it was highly successful in my opinion.  In my opinion this event was successful because there was a need in the Dynamics community for high quality, free learning. DynamicsCon required all sessions to be prerecorded, and on top of that there was a live chat during every session where the presenter could interact with the audience. This was very new and very exciting for the attendees, especially during this world where all conferences are being cancelled or switched to virtual.  Sessions I attended While there were several sessions within the Dynamics 365 Business Central track I only attended day 1 for the functional sessions. Below is a list of the sessions I attended. I've been consulting for D365BC for three years now and I was able to learn so much from each

How to use MICR fonts in Dynamics 365 Business Central AND modify the check layout

Being able to purchase completely blank check stock for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) is a plus, however you'll have to know how to configure the system so the MICR line prints on the check stock. Microsoft added the MICR checks functionality in early 2020 and using it can be a challenge to use if you're not familiar with modifying layouts in BC. I'll walk you through the process of being able to use this functionality. I will be showing you how to do this within my Production environment test company. I will then show you how to update your production company once you've completed your configuration and modified the check layout.  You should also test within a test company and test with your bank prior to updating in production company. If you're only modifying check layout and not using MICR line then you should be ok not testing with your bank first.  Bank Account Card First step is adding the bank account and transit numbers to the bank account ca

Community Summit 2020 is next week

  Community Summit North America is set to kick off next week October 7-9, 2020.  Community Summit is one of my favorite conferences of the year. This year is sure going to be different since it's going to be held virtually. Not being able to hug my friends and meet many others in person is going to be the hardest part of attending virtually for me. Please give us speakers grace and know that we have all prepared for countless hours to present; however presenting virtually is going to be such a different experience since we won't get to see all your smiling faces in the crowd!  Community One of the biggest things about Community Summit is the "community." Each UG has their own community, but lately the lines are becoming more blurred. Since Microsoft has introduced the Power Platform and it's capabilities across all Dynamics products, I've been able to learn from many other community users, consultants, and MVPs. Bringing people together and being able to lear
