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.

Payroll CS automatically calculates percent-of-sales commissions during check data entry if an employee is set up with the appropriate pay items.


To have Payroll CS perform the commission calculation, select a Commission pay item for each employee who will receive commission checks. Then, enter the commission percentage in the % of sales field in the Pay Item Properties dialog for the Commission pay item.


When entering a commission check during payroll check entry, simply enter the employee's amount of sales in the Sales field of the Payroll Check Entry window. Payroll CS will multiply the sales amount by the commission percentage you specified for that employee, and then enter the result in the Commissions pay item.
