Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

  1. Choose Setup > Checkbook.
  2. In the Checkbook dialog, highlight (or add) the checkbook you want to assign as the impound checkbook.
  3. If you are adding a new checkbook, enter a description for it.
  4. Mark the Impound checkbook checkbox and select the Impound checkbook associated with this client Impound checkbook.


    • Marking this checkbox disables most of the fields in this dialog because the information comes from the associated Impound checkbook and can no longer be modified at the client level. The GL account # field becomes the Holding account # field.
    • The Inactive checkbox only displays when the currently selected checkbook is associated with an Impound checkbook. If the Impound checkbox has been marked Inactive in the Setup > System Configuration > Impound Checkbook dialog, it will display as marked in this dialog.
  5. Enter the appropriate GL number in the Holding account # field.

    Note: The holding account will credit net pay with checks written from this checkbook and then debit the funding value when the EPS file is created.

  6. Click the Check Layout Information tab and enter or modify check layout information as needed.
  7. Click Enter to save your information and then Done to close the Checkbook dialog.
