Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

Use this dialog to enter default setup information for a selected template.

Open this dialog from the Tax Withholdings & Deductions tab of the Setup > Employee Templates dialog by clicking the /_images/acct_pr/csa/details.gif button for a Deduction Item.


  • Deduction items are global and, therefore, are available for any client and any employee template. To set up a deduction item, choose System Configuration from the Setup menu and then choose Deduction Items.
  • Templates are client specific, not global. For each template, fill in only the fields that you wish to have automatically included in the setup for each new employee record to be based on that template.
