Summer 2011 in Review: Tax Updates and Further Adoption of the Cloud with Office 365 Launch

Visit Website View Our Posts

It’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end, but instead of being a slow and uneventful summer, it’s been an exciting one indeed.

 For Microsoft Dynamics® GP users out there, there was another tax update in July: The Future Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) rate decreased from 6.2% to 6.0%.  Sometimes tax changes are good and sometimes bad, but either way, Microsoft Dynamics GP helps companies make the needed changes quickly and easily.  Make sure you get your update, if you haven’t already, and make the necessary adjustments in the accounting reports now.  Don’t wait until crunch time!

 The highly anticipated launch of Microsoft Office 365 was also released toward the end of June, confirming Microsoft’s commitment to the cloud even more.  Office 365 is another effort to help companies connect and collaborate from anywhere.  As more and more corporations go global, expand, undergo mergers and acquisitions, and simply grow, we are all looking for ways to streamline and standardize common business practices from location to location.  The cloud is quickly becoming an attractive solution to maintaining connection and productivity as businesses grow and change.  The cloud offers secure and reliable business solutions that can be accessed anywhere in the world.

 Microsoft is listening to the growing  and highly competitive workplace and responding to the need to maintain communication and be able to work outside the office walls.  Not only are they making software easier to access and use, they are able to keep up with updates to tax rates, currency exchange rates, and other financial elements important to global businesses.

 We know that most businesses remained as busy as ever this summer and we bet you have been active too!  Please share with us some of the events and activities that affected your organization the most this summer.  We would like to hear your thoughts and experiences.
