Rimini Street Announces Global Delivery of 2011-C Tax, Legal and Regulatory Update


Industry Leading Team Provides Fastest "Legislature-to-Live" SM Update Delivery Cycle; Clients Receive Updates Ahead of Software Vendors' Planned Release Dates

LAS VEGAS, June 6, 2011 - Rimini Street, Inc., the leading third-party maintenance and support provider for enterprise software, including Oracle Corporation's (NASDAQ: ORCL) Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, and E-Business Suite software, and SAP AG (NYSE:SAP) software, today announced delivery of its Tax, Legal and Regulatory Update 2011-C containing critical tax, legal and regulatory updates for the U.S. and Canada. Like all previous tax, legal and regulatory updates, Rimini Street provided the update ahead of the software vendors' own planned release dates for equivalent updates.

The 2011-C Update includes numerous U.S. federal, state, and local tax changes, as well as updates to Canadian provincial tax tables that will keep clients in compliance with all applicable tax, legal and regulatory requirements. In the U.S., federal tax tables were updated in conjunction with the change in the Federal Unemployment (FUTA) Tax, effective July 1, 2011. Update 2011-C also contains final components for the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act which allows employers to receive a new hire retention credit of up to $1,000 for each qualified employee. The Update also addresses changes to withholding of tax on non-resident aliens.

At the U.S. state level, the 2011-C Update addresses a number of critical changes, including updates to minimum wage and withholding tables, support for the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA), updates for additional states that now conform to the federal treatment of overage dependent health care premiums, and support for early adopters of Pennsylvania Act 32. Additionally, Update 2011-C delivers local tax changes for several states including Alabama, Ohio, New York and West Virginia.

For Canadian clients, the 2011-C Update includes provincial tax rate changes recently announced by the Canada Revenue Agency, effective July 1, 2011.
