Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

With the release of Client Bookkeeping Solution Version 2005.2.0 (Spring 2005), your CBS clients will be able to create direct deposit records that can be processed by InterceptEFT.

Disclaimer: InterceptEFT is an unaffiliated third party that some of our customers have engaged to provide direct deposit, tax payments, ACH processing, or credit card merchant services.

The InterceptEFT Direct Deposit feature within CBS creates EPS files and submits those to InterceptEFT, which in turn creates the ACH files and transmits them to the appropriate financial institutions. After submitting an application and setting up a business relationship with InterceptEFT, the client can transmit direct deposit vendor checks from CBS CheckWriter and CBS Accounts Payable, as well as payroll checks from CBS PayCheck. The check-printing process can automatically trigger the creation of the EPS records.

To enable this feature for a client using CBS v.2005.2.x or higher, do the following:

  1. Mark the Enable InterceptEFT Direct Deposit checkbox on either the CheckWriter tab or the PayCheck tab of the Setup > Miscellaneous Information dialog.
  2. Specify the appropriate security settings within the Direct Deposit tab of the Setup > Security dialog in Accountant's Assistant.
  3. Generate transfer files for the client to import, selecting Security as well as CheckWriter miscellaneous information and/or PayCheck miscellaneous information.

For details on how the CBS client can set up a business relationship with InterceptEFT and process checks for direct deposit, search on Applying for and setting up direct deposit via InterceptEFT from the Index tab of the Help Topics dialog in Client Bookkeeping Solution.
