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.

The MICR check feature is an integral part of your Payroll CS application. For licensed users of the Accountant's Assistant module, it is also available with the Vendor Checkwriting feature.

Enter the necessary information in the MICR tab of the Checkbook Setup dialog and customize one or more check layouts to include the MICR line information. Using the hardware described below, you may then print MICR-encoded checks on blank (rather than preprinted) check stock.

Note: A variety of check styles compatible with CSA check layouts are available from the Forms CS website.
