1099 Vendors must have one of the following 1099 Types selected on their Vendor record: Individual or Company. When selected, additional information, such as Name and Tax ID, is needed to better classify the Vendor.

When the '1099' tab was added to Vendor records, all Vendors were defaulted to have a 1099 Type of 'Company'. For Vendors that should actually be set to 'Individual', their 1099 information can easily be updated by following the steps listed below.

Note: Any necessary 1099 Vendor information can be updated following this same general process.
