Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

After the client's information is established, the Chart of Accounts must be set up. If you do not choose to transfer a Chart of Accounts from another client, then you will need to manually enter the Chart of Accounts.

  1. Select Setup > Chart of Accounts to open the Create Chart of Accounts dialog.
  2. Mark the option Transfer a Chart of Accounts from another client and click OK.
  3. In the Client to transfer from field, choose the client from which you wish to transfer a Chart of Accounts by selecting it from the F4 drop-down list.
  4. In the Transfer Client Information dialog, mark the Chart of Accounts checkbox (and the other client information checkboxes which you wish to transfer to your new client).
  5. Click the Transfer button.
  6. The Chart of Accounts window opens containing the transferred accounts.

GL clients: Unadjusted balances must be input either in a journal entry or directly into the Chart of Accounts as these balances cannot be entered into the Trial Balance window. It is recommended that you enter a journal entry.
