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. On the General Ledger tab of the File > Client properties dialog, mark the Use separate journals in transaction data entry checkbox.
  2. From the CSA main window, choose Setup > Journals.
  3. In the Journals dialog, click the Add button.
  4. Enter a description and choose a balancing account.
  5. Click the Enter button to add the journal to the list.
  6. Repeat steps 3 - 5 to add as many journals as you need.
  7. Click the Done button to save the information and close the Journals dialog.
