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.

  1. In the Engagement CS workspace choose Tasks > Assign Trial Balance.
  2. Select the staff member that you want assigned to the trial balance from the drop-down list in the Assign Trial Balance dialog.


  • The trial balance may only be assigned to one staff member per engagement client.
  • The staff member assigned to the trial balance has full access to the Journal Entries window in CSA.
  • The staff member assigned to the trial balance will receive the actual CSA client database when the trial balance is checked out.
  • The staff member assigned to the Trial Balance will be the only engagement team member who can delete entries from the CSA client database.
  • Before synchronizing with the master client, staff members can edit or delete any journal entries that were entered since the last synchronization with the Master Client Data (MCD). The Edit and Delete buttons are unavailable for use in the Journal Entries window when a journal entry is selected in the transaction listing that was entered by another staff member, or when entered by the same staff member, but previously updated in the Master Client Data.
  • When multi-staff functionality in Engagement CS is enabled, and you are assigned the appropriate privilege, you can gain full control of the trial balance in the Master Client Data (MCD). For details, see Multi-staff functionality in Engagement CS - Overview.
