For live payroll processing only

In Accounting CS, you can set up impound accounts in which you deposit funds collected from your client's bank account for the purpose of making payments on their behalf. When the client's payments are due, your firm makes the payments using the funds in this holding account. You can use impounding for payroll, tax payments, payroll deduction payments, and fee collection.
