End of Year information for the EBMS Administrator

EBMS Support Center > 2023 Year End Information

EBMS makes it easy to close the old year, open the new year, and update tax and payroll information. There is no need for a January 1st crunch to get the old year completed. Opening 2023 by mid-December ensures a smooth transition into the new year! As new tax and end of year information is released, we will be providing it here and sending out emails. Subscribe to the email list here.

EBMS version 8.4 or newer is strongly recommended for the updates. To verify your EBMS version go to Help > About EBMS. If you have questions about your version, please contact as soon as possible.
