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 overall objective of the PDS Client Accounting (PDS) to Creative Solutions Accounting (CSA) conversion utility is to provide a comprehensive conversion of your PDS data to the Write-Up CS application in CSA.

After creating or opening the client, choose Utilities > Data Conversion > PDS.
