Enhancements in 8.0.05

    Payables/Configure/Vendors - The Box 7 option in the Report on 1099 selector in Configure/Vendors has been returned to the selector list. This has been put back for use on the 1099-NEC. If you had your vendors previously configured for Box 7 and have not changed them, installing this update will automatically assign the Box 7 option to their configuration. Any Box you select in Report on 1099s will assign the amount to Box 1 of the 1099-NEC.

    2020 Form 1096 - Changes to the 1096 for 2020 include the addition of a box designated 1099-NEC (71) for Vendors that require the Form 1099-NEC. C21 does not support more than one box on the 1096, however, there is a workaround for the 1099-NEC Box on the 1096.

  1. Go to System and check 'Customize Reports and Forms.'
  2. In Payables/Print/1099 Payments, preview or print a report for the year to see which Box is checked for your Vendors.
  3. In Payables/Print/1096s, select the Vendors that required the 1099-NEC form (Box 7 with this update). Click Browse next to Selected Vendors and check any Vendors that required this form. See the 1099 Payments report if you are unsure.
  4. Click Preview.
  5. If you hover over the X that would normally go in the 1099-MISC Box, you will see blue lines appear that turn red when you click on them. Click the lines and drag the X over so that it will line up inside the 1099-NEC box on whatever preprinted form you are using. We recommend that you print it out on a blank piece of paper and line it up before printing on your form. When you close out of the Preview, if you do not save, the X will return to the original position.
