Service Pack, Hotfix, and Compliance Update Patch Releases for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016

This page contains a list of all service pack, hotfix, and compliance update patch releases for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016.

NOTICE Mainstream Support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 will end on 7/13/2021 which means at that point in time, you will no longer receive tax and year end updates. Visit this page for more information.


Patch file releases for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 can include service packs, hotfixes, tax updates and year end update.

  1. Hotfix - Hotfixes release approximately once a month and include only a few fixes for a limited number of modules. If you are using Latin American localization products for Argentina, Chile, or the Andean region, consult your Microsoft Dynamics Partner or Microsoft Support before installing any hotfix.

  2. Compliance Update - Compliance updates provide changes for year end reporting such as W2's, Magnetic Media and 1099's and also payroll tax updates.

All msp files (hotfixes, tax updates and year end updates) are cumulative and the version information is incremented with each patch release.

If you have a multi-lingual environment with English client installations and translated client installations, all Microsoft Dynamics GP clients MUST be running at the same Dynamics.dic version. If the client installation does not have the matching .MSP file installed, Microsoft Dynamics GP will not launch.
