Form UCT-6 and UCT-6A

  1. You must first enroll your client in order to e-file. If you have already done this, please skip to step 4.

    The payment information in the enrollment file is used by the state. However, Creative Solutions Accounting does not make your payment automatically. You can choose to make a payment by marking the Include direct payment checkbox and entering the appropriate information in the Payment group box of the FL FSET Client dialog. For information on making payments, please either refer to the DR-600 form or visit the Florida Department of Revenue's website.

  2. Choose File > e-Enrollment when the Florida Payroll Tax Processing window is active.
  3. Enter the appropriate information on the Agent and Client tabs and click the Create File button once the information has been entered.


    • If you are not a registered agent with the state of Florida, you must still complete the certain information on the Agent tab to create an acceptable file. (If you are not filing as an agent, leave the Agent field blank to have the application create and transmit all UCT-6 forms using the employer's Florida Unemployment ID. Be sure to enroll your clients online at http://dor.myflorida.com/dor/eservices/enroll.html.)
    • When the enrollment files are created, they are automatically encrypted for security and stored in the \CSASYS\MAGMEDIA\ folder. Before submitting these files to the appropriate agency you must use the Save to Submittable Format command, at which point the files are decrypted. Using the Restore from Submittable Format option will encrypt the files once again. You can use the File > Preview command to view the file decrypted.
  4. Choose Setup > FSET Transmission > Client when the Florida Payroll Tax Processing window is active, enter the appropriate information, and then click OK.
  5. For agent filing only: Choose Setup > FSET Transmission > Firm, enter the appropriate information, and then click OK.

    Note: The information entered in the FSET Firm dialog is global and for agent filing only; that is, agent filing will be used for all Florida clients.

  6. Choose File > Print.
  7. Mark the Queue checkbox next to Form UCT-6 and then click OK.
  8. Choose File > FSET Utilities > Queue Maintenance to delete any files prior to transmission via CS Connect.
  9. Choose File > FSET Utilities > FSET Maintenance to view or delete any return or acknowledgement files.
  10. When you are ready to send your files to Florida, click the Done button to close the Payroll Tax Processing window and then choose File > CS Connect.
  11. In the CS Connect dialog, mark the Transmit returns checkbox in the Electronic filing section. Use the Electronic filing tab to select the files to be sent and then click the Call Now button.

    Note: The Transmit returns checkbox will transmit both state and federal files. If you would like to send only Florida files, use the Electronic filing tab to select them for submission.

  12. Once Florida has accepted or rejected your file(s), you will receive an acknowledgement file via CS Connect. To download the acknowledgement file, open the CS Connect dialog, mark the Retrieve acknowledgements checkbox in the Electronic filing section, and click the Call Now button.
  13. If acknowledgements were downloaded, you can view them in the FSET Maintenance dialog by choosing Utilities > Payroll Tax Processing, selecting Florida, and then choosing File > FSET Maintenance.
