Here's what we know about what's going on with the new DIR website.

If you are having issues uploading your certified payroll data into the "new California DIR website" - just be patient and let DIR get the kinks worked out!  Please contact DIR if you are experiencing issues with their website.   

When the notice back in February about DIR's plans to revamp the Public Works website services including the eCPR system, we immediately got in touch with our contact person at DIR.  We were assured that nothing was going to change in the actual XML file that CPS creates, the only change would be where & how you submit the upload files.

Unfortunately, our software will not run on Right Networks

Hosting QuickBooks is tricky.  Each QuickBooks hosting platform is different.  Some offer dedicated hosting while other only offer shared hosting.  And the differences are like 'night and day', or like 'living in a palace vs a shared apartment'.

  • Dedicated hosting provides an exclusive physical server that is only available to you, nobody else is using the same server which is running only your applications, including QuickBooks.  This is equal to you having a physical server in your office.
  • A shared hosting environment in which your application(s), like QuickBooks, run on the same physical server (even if it has been configured as multiple virtual servers) with many other users is just that, ‘shared’ and the resources (processors, processor cores and memory) are also shared.

Unfortunately, we will probably never be able to release versions of our software that are compatible with QuickBooks Online. 
 
We have been waiting since 2008 for Intuit to provide the same features/functionality in QBO that there is in the desktop version and then of course if they do add the same features/functionality - they still need to allow 3rd party developers to access that data.

Having issues connecting our software after a QuickBooks Upgrade?  You could experience these issues with ANY currently supported version of QuickBooks Pro, Premier, or Enterprise 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024!  Not all of our customers are having difficulties, but some still are - apparently Intuit has not resolved the issues on their end.

Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) has teamed up with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and is now requiring ALL prime and subcontractors working on DOT projects with federal funding to submit certified payrolls into the AASHTOWare Project Civil Rights and Labor™ (CRL) Management System.  The system processes contractors’ payrolls against the appropriate wage decision allowing for increased accuracy and timeliness.

You can create this spreadsheet with most of the data filled in by Certified Payroll Solution; however, there is NO WAY to provide this as a 100% accurate form that can be submitted due to complicated requirements. You will need to check this form carefully before submitting it.

Earlier this year, New Jersey Governor Murphy enacted the Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act an gave the actual certified payroll reporting form an overhaul. 

Now, the New Jersey Department of  Labor (NJDOL), Division of Wage and Hour Compliance has made major changes to the Statement of Compliance.  Among the changes to the form, there is now a section (table) requiring that where the fringe benefit due employees is paid to approved plans, funds or programs (rather than to the employee in cash), contractors must MUST indicate which part of the total fringe benefit amount was paid to each of the following plans/funds/programs:

  • health/welfare,
  • vacation/holiday,
  • apprenticeship/training,
  • pension
  • and "Other" - which you are required to explain. 

The form also requires that for each plan/fund/program, the contractor must include the hourly rate paid,  the name and address of the fund, plan or program administrator, the USDOL benefit plan filing number or EIN, and any third-party trustee and/or contact person. 

No other state (to date) requires contractors to submit THIS MUCH information.
