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.

  1. Choose Tasks > Payroll Check Entry for payroll checks or Tasks > Vendor Check Entry for vendor checks.
  2. If more than one checkbook has been defined for this client, the application will prompt you to choose the checkbook so the entry is made to the correct cash account.
  3. Enter the check information into the Check Entry window, making sure to enter both the check date and the check number.

    If the check date and/or check number fields are not accessible in the Payroll Check Entry window, choose Edit > Options and clear the Check date and Check number checkboxes in the Fields to disable group box.

  4. Click the Enter button to save the new check record.


  • The monthly, quarterly, and year-to-date amounts in each employee or vendor record are updated automatically when a paycheck is printed or marked as handwritten.
  • Once a handwritten payroll or vendor check is saved, you can edit the check number as long as it has not been printed, voided, reversed, or marked as "cleared" in bank reconciliation.
