               Step 4     Clear employee accumulators

               Step 5     Perform a backup

W2 Processing Considerations

 

Quite often, employers will wish to continue processing payroll transactions into the next year prior to processing their W2 forms.  This is possible with the Elliott Payroll module.  Perform steps 1, 2, 4, and 5 of the Year-End Processing Checklist, taking all necessary precautions to ensure the backup required in step 2 is valid. 

 

To process W2 forms after clearing the year-to-date accumulators, the following steps must be performed.  No activity can take place in any Elliott module while these steps are being performed!

 

               Step 1     Make a backup of the entire data directory being processed

                      -   Save and label this backup "Current Elliott Data Files" for use in step 5 below

 

               Step 2     Restore the backup from step 2 (labeled "Final Year 20___ End Backup") of the Year-End Processing Checklist

 

               Step 3     Perform W2 processing

                      -   Select Print/Create W-2 Forms - Print application.  This will print the employee's W2's, and provide a paper copy for the Social Security Administration (SSA).

                      -   Select Print/Create W-2 Forms - Create application.  This will create the SSA Copy "A" information required on magnetic media for those employers that have obtained approval to file in this manner.

                     

               Step 4     Verify the accuracy of the W2's and re-print if necessary.

 

               Step 5     Restore the backup labeled "Current Elliott Data Files" from   step 1 above (W2 Processing Considerations)

 

               Step 6     Normal processing may now be resumed
