Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017. CSA will not include 2017 tax rates or payroll forms, so, for 2017 and beyond, you will need to process payroll in another application. We recommend Accounting CS Payroll and myPay Solutions. For more information, see the following topics.

The Accountant's Assistant module within the Creative Solutions Accounting (CSA) application is the link that allows data to carry smoothly between the CSA application in your own office and the Client Bookkeeping Solution (CBS) modules within a client's office. Note that the Accountant's Assistant module allows you to set up client information and process the client's exported data in Write-Up CS only for a CBS Windows client (not for a client using the DOS-based Checkbook Solution modules).

To prepare setup information for a CBS client, and to retrieve export data from a CBS client, the following are required:

After setting up the appropriate information for a CBS client in CSA, choose Utilities > Accountant's Assistant > Client Bookkeeping Solution and complete the setup for that client following the steps outlined in the help topics that are accessible from the Help menu within the Accountant's Assistant main window.

To retrieve data that your CBS client has exported and sent to you (via diskette, email, or modem transfer), choose Retrieve from the Tasks menu within the Accountant's Assistant main window.
