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.

Accounting CS enables you to add annotations, notes, and stamps directly to PDF workpapers that are saved in your engagement binder and to PDF documents that are attached to AP transactions. You can use this PDF editor even if you do not have other PDF editing applications installed (for example, Adobe Acrobat).

Keyboard shortcuts are special keys (such as F1 and ESC) that you use either alone or in combination with SHIFT, CTRL, or CTRL+SHIFT. These keyboard shortcuts enable you to access various types of help and execute certain menu commands.
