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.

Creative Solutions Accounting (CSA) is the "platform" that integrates the software included on the CS Professional Suite Accounting Products CD.

Note: Financial Analysis CS (which is also included on the CS Professional Suite Accounting Products CD) runs as a separate program and can retrieve client data from Write-Up CS or Trial Balance CS in CSA. If appropriately licensed, you can use Financial Analysis CS to retrieve industry data from the RMA Annual Statement Studies national database.

All of the CS Professional Suite software products are designed to provide you with the tools you need to conduct your accounting business more efficiently, and more profitably.

Choose CSA Help Topics from the Help menu if you need additional assistance in using your Creative Solutions Accounting software. See Getting help for details.
