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 Alternate Impound Checkbook Setup dialog is used to enter information necessary for creating an ACH file for direct deposits made from the Impound checkbook, if different than the client checkbook set up on the Direct Deposit tab of the Client Properties dialog. To use this alternate setup, the Use alternate setup for Impound withdrawals checkbox must be marked on the Direct Deposit tab.

From the CSA main window, choose File > Client Properties, click the Direct Deposit tab, and then click the Alternate setup button.

Note: Much of the information to be entered on this display should be provided to you by the bank to which the ACH file will be transmitted.

Fields & buttons

Enter the minimum amount required by the destination bank or by company policy for each payroll direct deposit transmittal.

The application refers to this minimum amount when saving an unprinted check during payroll check entry for an impound checkbook. If the direct deposit deduction amount on the check is below the specified minimum, the application informs you that all calculated direct deposit amounts will be zeroed if you choose to save the check.

Required information: Enter the ID of the bank that will receive the ACH file, or select it from the drop-down list.
