Supplement to the JD Edwards World A9.4 Upgrade Guide for Upgrades from A7.3, A8.1, A9.1, A9.2 and A9.3.


In September 2010, Vertex announced the retirement of the U.S. Vertex® Payroll Tax L Series® (“PTL”) product at the end of December 2011, however due to feedback from customers and integrators they have extended support of PTL until the end of December 2013.

In response to this announcement, and starting with JD Edwards World release A9.3, JD Edwards will replace its U.S. Payroll integration to Vertex’s Payroll Tax L Series with the integration to Vertex’s next generation product, Payroll Tax Q Series (PTQ). All World Payroll customers should plan to upgrade to JD Edwards World A9.3 prior to December 31, 2013.
