9.2 1099 WH Manual Adjustments
Purpose: Use this document as a reference for manually maintaining 1099 withholding transactions in ctcLink.
Audience: Accounts Payable staff
You can adjust withholding manually if necessary. This process is for manually adjusting posted withholding transactions by Supplier or adding withholding entries from a legacy or third-party system.
Whenever possible, we advise you to make your adjustments through “Withholding Supplier Update” or “Withholding Invoice Line Update”. These types of adjustments update the underlying Withholding tables, unlike the manual adjustments which only update the Withholding Transaction table.

- You will enter amounts and dates. Under “Basis Amt,” you will enter the amount on which the Withholding is calculated. This is the basis amount that is reported to the Withholding entity for this payment. It includes the liability amount and is typically the gross amount of the voucher.
The Liability Amount displays the amount of backup withholding that is retained to remit to the withholding entity. The Paid Amount displays the amount of the withholding liability that has been paid to the withholding entity. These two fields should always be zero.
For Payment Date, all adjustments should have a Payment Date of December 31st of the 1099 reporting year. In addition, the Declaration Date displays the date on which the withholding is declared and is used for withholding entities who use a date other than payment date (accounting date for example) to report withholding transactions. Because we use Payment Date, it should be the same date that we entered for Payment Date, which is December 31st of the 1099 reporting year.
- Select the Adjustment Reason tab.
- The Adjustment Reason tab displays.
- This tab is used to record why the adjustment was made. The Creation Date is the date you are entering the adjustment, and the User ID is the person making the adjustment. For the Description, you should include a reference as to why the adjustment was made.
Each transaction row that you enter is then added to the Withholding Transaction table (WTDH_TRXN_TBL). It is also added to or subtracted from the totals already in the Withholding Transaction table.
- Select Save.
- Process complete.
