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.

Use the Bank Feeds portlet to review transactions that you have retrieved from the client’s bank and to approve the specific transactions to import into Accounting CS.

  1. Open the Bank Feeds Dashboard and then click the view that contains the Bank Feeds portlet.
  2. Verify that the correct client is selected.
  3. Select the applicable bank account and then click the Retrieve Data button.

Fields & buttons

Use the Search and filter fields to limit the number of transactions listed in the grid.

Select the client whose transactions you want to retrieve.

After you select a client, Accounting CS populates drop-down list for the Bank Account field with that client's bank accounts. Select the one for which you want to retrieve transactions.

After you select the client and bank account, click this button to retrieve transactions for that account. The application connects to the financial institution and retrieves (but does not yet import) any transactions that were not previously retrieved.

This grid displays information about the transactions that were retrieved from the client’s bank account. If the reference and amount for a retrieved transaction match the reference and amount for an existing Accounting CS transaction, the application displays Match in the Status column, and that transaction is also listed in the Matched Transactions grid below.

You can modify the information in the Reference and Description columns for any unmatched transactions by highlighting the row and double-clicking in the field you want to modify.

To include a transaction in the import, mark the checkbox in the Approve column. When you click the Approve button, Accounting CS imports the selected transactions from the client's bank account and marks the transactions as cleared for bank reconciliation.

If the reference and amount for a retrieved transaction match the reference and amount for an existing Accounting CS transaction, that transaction is listed in this grid. To see the transaction that was created in Accounting CS, highlight the transaction in this grid and click the Go To Source button. Accounting CS opens the transaction in the Actions > Enter Transactions screen.

If the transaction is not a true match, highlight the transaction and click the Unmatch button. That transaction will then be listed in the Retrieved Transactions grid above, and you can mark it to be included with the import.

To import data for a specific date range, click this button and choose Import A Range to open a dialog where you can select the appropriate date range.

To save any changes you've made without finalizing the import, click this button. You or another staff member who has access to this client's account can return to this portlet at any time to complete the import.

After you have selected the transactions to import into Accounting CS, click this button to initiate the import. The application imports the transactions and makes them available in the Actions > Enter Transactions screen and the Actions > Reconcile Bank Accounts screen.
