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.

The Earnings grid lists all pay items for the selected template. As you add additional pay items, new rows are added to the grid as needed.

Each field in this column is a drop-down list that includes the description of all pay items. Choose the pay items that are relevant to this employee's work in the selected department.

If the pay item type is Salaried (either hours sensitive or hours insensitive), enter the annual salary. (The fields in this column are not accessible for any pay item whose wage type for this template is Linked to Other.)

Choose the default frequency to use for the selected pay item by selecting from the following options: Daily; Weekly; Bi-Weekly; Twice Monthly; Monthly; Quarterly; Semi-annually; Annually; Non-periodic. (When adding a new template, this field defaults to the setting in the Default Frequency field on the Calculating Payroll tab of the Client Properties dialog.)
