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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

Use the Tasks > Retrieve command to retrieve the CBS client's export files into Accountant's Assistant. When retrieving information, Accountant's Assistant looks in the default path specified in the Setup > File Locations dialog.

Be sure the GL and payroll periods are set to the appropriate dates relative to the client data you are about to retrieve.

  • The current GL period should correspond to the earliest month represented in the client's export files. No transactions will be transferred into a GL period prior to the current CSA fiscal year at the time of transfer.
  • Payroll periods are transferred into CSA based on the options selected on the PayCheck tab of the Setup > Miscellaneous Information dialog in Accountant's Assistant - either the current payroll period ending date or the month of the check date.

Choose Tasks > Retrieve, or click the Retrieve button icon on the shortcut bar, to retrieve your client's exported information.

Note: If client data from a previous retrieval still exists in your Accountant's Assistant application, you will see a prompt that allows you to choose whether you want to remove old client data and continue with the procedure or to discontinue the retrieval process.
