Starting with the 2020 tax year the IRS has updated the 1099 form and added the 1099-NEC which replaces some of the reporting on the previous 1099-MISC form.
An updated utility was released on December 15, 2020, which allows for moving data that may have been in open A/P invoices. Read the Sage KB entry here for more information and to download the utility.
The IRS have essentially removed the non-employee compensation reporting from the 1099-MISC and added it to form 1099-NEC.
