    We have discontinued our use of Lawson for payroll with our acquisition by another company and their taking over of this function. However we still have a few individuals who need to be paid from prior to the cutover and they must be paid from Lawson. We need to know whether we need to have BSI on our Lawson system for the payroll applications to function or if we can safely remove it. We understand we will need to manually calculate the taxes, but just want to make sure that the payroll functionality of Lawson will work without BSI as it requires renewal and we are reluctant to assume that expense for just a few paychecks. I asked Infor about this and they would only suggest that we hire a resource to try it out - which would cost more than re-upping BSI to create four paychecks.

    The payroll application should produce errors without BSI installed. You'll likely get IOS errors and batch failures. HR11 may also make TaxLocator calls and generate errors. You can change the lawson.env for the BSI connect information and restart Lawson to test this.

    I was afraid of that. Removing it to test would seem like setting a house on fire to see if the whole thing will burn. :) I was told by an 'authority' that it would likely break the Lawson payroll applications if we removed it.

    Our hosting company believes they have a way to test without actually removing the BSI application and we are trying that. However I question whether BSI has the right to force us to break non-tax-related functionality on our system to remove their application, especially since we've not been downloading updates so the tax calculations would not be usable anyhow.
