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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

To configure a payroll client not to accrue liabilities and expenses for the employer's portion of FICA, FUTA, and SUTA, (cash basis vs. accrual basis) you can do so during either employee template setup or employee setup. This method will avoid postings to the general ledger.

  1. Choose Setup > Employees or Setup > Employee Templates from the CSA main window.
  2. In either the Employees or the Employee Templates window, click the Other tab.
  3. Select an employee or an employee template and then click the Edit button.
  4. In the FICA and FUTA GL accounts fields, make the expense and liability accounts the same.
  5. In the SUTA GL accounts field, make the expense and liability accounts the same.

Note: Settings in the Employees window affect only the currently selected employee, while settings in the Employee Templates window affect all employees subsequently added using this template.
