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.

Before your clients can begin using Client Bookkeeping Solution (CBS), they must import data from transfer files that you provide to them. The transfer files contain setup information for each of the clients' licensed CBS modules.

  3. Double-click each type of item that you wish to include with the transfer. This moves it to the right-hand (Selected) pane. For the initial setup of a CBS client, you must transfer the License Files and Security features, checkbooks, Chart of Accounts, and CheckWriter miscellaneous information. (Other features may be required depending on which CBS modules the client is using). After the initial setup, you may choose to transfer just the items that you need to update for the client.
  4. After you have selected all the items you want for your client, click the Generate button.
  5. In the Choose Licensee dialog, select the client license with which to generate the Transfer Disk.
  6. Click the Generate button to begin writing the transfer files to the location specified in the Generate field on the Setup > File Locations dialog.
