Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

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.
