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 Layouts tab to specify the vendor, payroll (for live payroll processing), and accounts payable check layouts, deposit slip layout, and other graphic information (such as company logo and signature facsimile in BMP, PNG, or JPG file format) to use for this bank account and to specify MICR information for checks and deposit slips.

Client Bank Accounts screen - choose Setup > Bank Accounts and then click the Layouts tab.

Impound Bank Accounts screen (for live payroll processing only) - choose Setup > Firm Information > Impound Bank Accounts and then click the Layouts tab.

Fields & buttons

Note: The deposit slip options are available for client bank accounts only; they are not available for impound bank accounts.

Select the layout for each applicable check type (vendor, payroll, and/or accounts payable) and deposit slip to use as the layouts for this bank account.

  • The drop-down lists for the checks include all of the predefined check layouts provided with the application and all custom check layouts created and modified in the Layout Designer.
  • The drop-down list for the deposit slip includes the predefined deposit slip layout provided with the application and all custom deposit slip layouts created and modified in the Layout Designer.

Choose the MICR format to use when printing your own checks and deposit slips instead of using preprinted check and deposit slip stock. Note that the MICR deposit slip options are available for client bank accounts only; they are not available for impound bank accounts.

  • Standard. Choose this option to use the MICR line created by the application based on the information entered in the Main tab of the Bank Accounts screen. The application uses the bank's routing number for the Transit number and the account number for On-US number.

    If you choose the Standard format, you can also specify the following MICR options.

    • Digits to allow for auxiliary on-us. (For checks only) Select the number of digits to display for the check number in the auxiliary On-US section. The default number is 10.
    • Starting position for the on-us section. Select the digit at which to start the On-US section of the MICR line. This is generally specified by the financial institution on which the check is written. The default is 31.
    • Print beginning on-us character. Mark this checkbox to print the beginning On-US character on the layout. Again, this is specified by the financial institution.
  • Custom. To create your own non-standard MICR line, choose this option and then click the Ellipsis Ellipsis button button to open the Custom MICR Line dialog.

For more information about the MICR line, see Using MICR specification numbers for check and deposit slip layouts and Creating a custom MICR line for check and deposit slip layouts.

Click the Ellipsis button button next to the Logo and Signature fields to navigate to and select images for the logo and signature(s) to appear on the check and deposit slip. Valid formats are BMP, PNG, or JPG files.
