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.

CBS posts transactions based on the Post Date for Transactions option selection on the Financial Statements tab of the Setup > Miscellaneous Information dialog. The default selection is Use Current Export Period.

Use Transaction Date option

EXAMPLE

Assumptions: The CSA GL period transferred to CBS is 10/31/04. The client has already exported November data, and the CBS current export period date is 12/31/04.

Results

  • CBS will post exported transactions dated on or after 11/01/04 up to and including the current export date.
  • CBS will post transactions exported in the November period into the appropriate period based on their transaction dates. (Note that if you chose the Current Export Period option in Accountant's Assistant, CBS will post these transactions as November activity.)
  • CBS posts transactions with a prior-period date only for the current fiscal year. CBS will post any transaction dated in a prior fiscal year as a current transaction.
  • CBS will not post transactions exported on or before 10/31/04.
  • CBS will not post transactions dated on or after 01/01/05. (CBS considers these to be future transactions.)
