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.

For a multi-department or multi-location client, you need to set up combining accounts that the application can use as a place to accumulate (and from which to report) consolidated totals.

When the Setup > Chart of Accounts window is active, choose Enter Combining Accounts from the Edit menu or from the F3 or right-click context menu.


  • Account numbers for combining accounts will be the core account number (the C or A or #) positions in the Chart of Accounts mask. Do not include the location or department numbers (the L or D positions in the Chart of Accounts mask).
  • You must be in Browse mode (rather than Add or Edit mode) to access any of the options or dialogs that are available from the Edit menu or the right-click context menu when the Chart of Accounts window is active.
