Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

If you receive a client's ending account balances each period and do not want to manually calculate the net change for each account, you can use the Actions > Enter Trial Balance screen to enter those ending balances in the Trial Balance grid.

  1. Choose Actions > Enter Trial Balance and select the Default view, or if necessary set up a new view for your client that includes an Amount column with the following definitions.
    Amount type Period Year
    Unadjusted [CY] Current YTD C Current Year
  2. Enter the ending balances in the Amount column for the current posting period. The application will automatically calculate the net change and post that to the current period.

Note: As an alternative, you could choose to import a client's ending balances from a spreadsheet using the Chart of Accounts spreadsheet import.
