Rimini Street Delivers Global Tax, Legal & Regulatory Updates


Industry's Fastest "Legislature-to-Live"(SM) Release Cycle Enables Timely Delivery of Extensive Updates, Including Enhanced Support for 2010 HIRE Act in the U.S.

Las Vegas, NV - August 16, 2010 - Rimini Street, Inc., the leading third-party maintenance and support provider for enterprise software, including Oracle Corporation's (NASDAQ: ORCL) Siebel, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards software, and SAP AG (NYSE:SAP) software, today announced delivery of its Tax, Legal and Regulatory Update 2010-D for the United States and Canada. The company also announced the delivery of comprehensive global tax, legal and regulatory updates for several countries. As in all previous releases, Rimini Street has delivered tax, legal and regulatory updates ahead of the enterprise software vendors' own planned release dates for equivalent updates.

Tax, Legal and Regulatory Update 2010-D includes numerous North American payroll tax changes for U.S. and Canadian clients that will keep them in compliance with all applicable tax, legal and regulatory requirements. The updates include changes to country tables, garnishment rules, local tax tables, unemployment reporting and EIC calculation rules for several states including Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

At the U.S. federal level, the update includes enhanced support for the new Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act, which provides employers with an exemption from the employer's share of social security tax on wages paid to qualifying employees. Rimini Street builds on previously delivered updates that will enable employers to easily identify, track, report and obtain credit for eligible employees.

Numerous global tax updates have also been delivered to support global and international client requirements. For example, updates are available for Singapore, where the government has announced changes to the employer Central Provident Fund (CPF) contribution rate that will be implemented on September 1, 2010. North American tax treaty updates for France and Italy have also been recently released.
