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 you import the Accountant's Transfer Disk into CBS, be sure the Import/Export path (in the CBS Data Folders tab of the Utilities > Options dialog CBS) points to the location of the Transfer Disk.

  1. From the CBS File menu, choose Import > From Accountant.
    • If the Import path is pointing to a floppy drive, CBS will prompt you to insert disk #1. At the message prompt, click OK.
    • If the Import path is on the hard drive, CBS will automatically begin to copy the client setup file from the data location specified.
  2. After CBS has finished copying the import files from the Transfer Disk, it will display a message prompt stating that the files were imported successfully. Click OK.
  3. (Optional) Restore the backup copy of the check layouts that you created in your own office.
  4. Verify the checkbook information if you did not set up the client's checkbooks in CSA.
  5. (Optional) If the client will be using the Checkbook Reconciliation feature, enter any uncleared items already reflected in CSA.
  6. Verify the settings in the File > Company Properties dialog in CBS.
  7. If the client has additional CBS modules, verify that all the setup information is correct.
