Customer FAQ  - as of 12/3/13

1. Which Bugs can I expect to be addressed?
General Bugs will be accepted and dispositioned per Oracle's policy until April 30, 2011. Open Bugs as of that date will be fixed and an ESU available where appropriate. The ESU may be available after April 30, 2011. After April 30, 2011, no general bugs will be accepted unless requested by a customer who has purchased Extended Support.

2. Will Year-End fixes for 1099s, W2s, and T4s be available for Fiscal Year 2011?
A year end update for all customers for Canada and the US will be delivered for 2011. Therefore, Reg/Leg Bugs will be accepted until April 30, 2012, and an ESU available for those areas. All 8.12 customers get 2011 Year End support at no extra cost.

After that, for 2012 and 2013, you only get Year End support updates if you paid for extended support.
Note: for extended support customers, the US/CA fiscal year end will be supported through March 31, 2014. 

3. What about Australia/NZ?
Support will be available for Aus/NZ through the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012.  Therefore, Reg/Leg Bugs will be accepted until July 31, 2012.
Note: for extended support customers, the Aus/NZ fiscal year end will be supported through July 31, 2014.

Sustaining support puts you in control of your upgrade strategy. With Sustaining Support, you will receive technical support for as long as you operate your systems, including access to our online support tools, knowledgebases, pre-existing fixes for your solution, and assistance from technical support experts. For some customers, Sustaining Support will allow continued use of the release. However, if you are actively implementing new sites, business processes, or modules, carefully consider the policy to determine if Sustaining Support is the right strategy.

Sustaining support allows for download of ESUs that were issued during the support period prior to Sustaining.  What is NOT provided are code changes and/or code change requests on releases in Sustaining Support.
