Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

For live payroll processing only

With the Remote Check Printing feature, your firm can prepare payroll and vendor checks and then transmit PDF copies of them to the client's NetClient CS portal for the client to print.

Note: If your client is set up to use Accounting CS Client Access, you do not need to use the remote check printing feature. Your client can print payroll and vendor checks directly from their Accounting CS application. For detailed information about the features available to clients, see Accounting CS Client Access features available for client use.

Setting up the client for remote check printing

To set up a client to use remote check printing, follow these steps.

  1. Choose Setup > Clients and click the Payroll Information tab.
  2. In the Default Check Output section, click the Remote check printing option.
  3. Specify which types of checks should be printed remotely for this client by marking the applicable checkboxes.
    • Payroll checks. You can mark the Send to FileCabinet CS checkbox to send the payroll checks to FileCabinet CS after printing. You can also mark the Exclude net checks checkbox to send only checks with a net check amount of zero to the client portal for remote check printing.
    • Vendor checks. You can mark the Send to FileCabinet CS checkbox to send the vendor checks to FileCabinet CS after printing. You can also mark the Exclude funded checks checkbox to prevent funded checks from being sent to the client portal for remote printing.

Printing payroll checks remotely

If the client has been set up to use remote check printing, the application automatically sends checks to the client's portal when they are printed.

For more information about printing payroll checks, see the Printing payroll checks procedure.
