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.

Payroll departments are client-specific and are used for reporting purposes and to distribute certain payroll setup information to individual employees. Even if the client does not actually have multiple departments, you can use departments to group employees who work in different physical locations or who represent different job families, or to set up projects to be used for Certified payroll clients.

To add or delete a department, or to change the default employee template associated with a department, choose Payroll Departments from the Setup menu.

Note: Because each employee must be assigned to at least one active department and because each client must have at least one department, a Default Department is automatically created by the application when you add a new client in Payroll CS.
