Important reminder!

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

The Payroll CS Guide to Handling Direct Deposit (PDF) contains an extended example describing the client setup and processing steps for direct deposit.

Entering new banks into Payroll CS and the Direct Deposit module

The first step in setting up a client for direct deposit processing is to enter any bank that will be making or receiving electronic payments into the Payroll CS system and the Direct Deposit module. Repeat these steps for each new bank. Once a bank is set up, it is available for use by any client.

  1. From the CSA main window, choose Utilities > Direct Deposit.
  2. From the Maintain Electronic Transaction Files dialog, choose Setup > Bank Information.
  3. In the Bank Information dialog, enter the Description, Bank Name, and RTN (the bank's routing/transit number) in the applicable fields.

    Note: If any banks have already been entered in the Bank Information dialog list, click the Add button to enter information for additional banks.

  4. Click the Enter button to save the record.
  5. Click the Done button to save the information and return to the Maintain Electronic Transaction Files dialog.
  6. From the Maintain Electronic Transaction Files dialog, choose Setup > File Headers.
  7. In the File Headers dialog, enter the description and header text for each file header that the client will need to transmit ACH files and then click OK to return to the Maintain Electronic Transaction files dialog.
  8. Click the Done button to return to the CSA main window.
