TIN Compliance, B Notices and Backup Withholding : Avoid Fines and Stay Compliant

1099 tax form.jpgOVERVIEW

Issuers of 1099 Forms can adopt best practices and procedures that streamline the year end process and provide assurance that 1099s are correct, at least so far as vendor names and TINs are concerned. While certain errors in reporting dollar amounts are considered “inconsequential” under new de minimis error rules, errors in the payee name or TIN are never considered inconsequential and can result in penalties.

Best practices to avoid errors and penalties include TIN solicitation, TIN verification, timely and appropriate response to IRS notices including issuing and follow up on B-Notices to payees, and procedures to implement and discontinue backup withholding as required.

The webinar will discuss the solicitation process including solicitation using and analyzing Form W-9, annual solicitations, B-notices and solicitations in response to IRS notices, and what to do when the vendor does not provide a TIN or provides an incorrect TIN.

It will cover how to register to use the IRS TIN verification service, how the system matches names and numbers and how this can help in preparing submissions to prevent false positive or negative responses from the system. It will cover how to submit TINs for verification and what to do when the system indicates a mismatch between the name and number of the vendor.

Procedures related to IRS notification of a name number mismatch or propose penalties for incorrect information returns are also covered including procedures the payer must follow in issuing B-Notices to payees.

The session will discuss establishment of procedures for proper administration of backup withholding.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Year end is a busy time for Accounts Payable. With the acceleration of the due date for certain 1099 Forms and the increased penalties, it is more important than ever to prepare information returns correctly and file them on time. Preparation well in advance of the filing season is critical.

Establishment and implementation of procedures that provide for TIN solicitation, TIN verification, response to IRS notices and backup withholding are keys to efficient processing, avoiding errors or missing information, and establishing reasonable cause for penalty avoidance when errors occur.

This webinar discusses how to establish procedures and best practices, including name/TIN verification, that avoid situations that can lead to penalties or, when such situations occur, establish the reasonable cause defence that allows you to avoid the penalty.

AREAS COVERED

  • Reminders and what’s new
  • IRS matching process
  • Penalties
  • Establishing reasonable cause
  • Solicitations
  • TIN verification
  • Notices
  • Backup withholding

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Know how and when to issue B-notices to vendors and what to do when the payee responds or fails to respond.

Excel – Data Visualization and Infographics

OVERVIEW

There is a saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. In Excel that means finding ways to represent numerical data pictorially so that your audience can quickly and easily understand it.

It’s often easier to look at a chart, a graph or something visual than to just look at a set of figures.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Until a few years ago it was enough to take a set of numbers and create a bar chart or pie chart. Although in the right situation these traditional charts are still appropriate, things have moved on and we’re constantly hearing words like Data Visualization and Infographic.

It’s time to get your Excel-related business and communication skills up to date and learn how to use it to present data in the modern world.

AREAS COVERED

  • Charting 101 – create a basic chart
  • From drab to fab – enhance and customize a basic chart
  • Combination charts – line and bar in a single chart
  • Dynamic charts – automate adding new data to a chart
  • Creating in-cell Sparkline charts
  • Creating infographics with Excel
  • Using Conditional Formatting to present data visually
  • 3D Map – presenting geographic data in a visual way
  • An introduction to the Power View add-in

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this Microsoft Excel training you’ll learn how to create and enhance the appearance of traditional charts such as bar charts. You’ll also learn how to create Sparkline charts (really useful in dashboards), infographic-style charts and how to represent data in a visual way without using the charting features at all.

WHO WILL BENEFIT

This training is aimed at users who have little or no knowledge of how to produce visuals in Excel. Attendees should be familiar with how to navigate around an Excel workbook and how to enter and edit data.

The training will be delivered using Excel 2016 for Windows although for users of earlier versions, much of the functionality is available in Excel 2010 and 2013 (note – 3D Map and Power View are not available for Excel 2010)
