Accounting

  • We have addressed an issue that caused Accounting CS to close unexpectedly when importing client records from UltraTax CS via the File > Import > Populate Clients from UltraTax CS wizard.

Accounting CS Payroll, for live payroll processing

In addition to the changes made for general payroll features listed above for after-the-fact payroll processing, the following changes have been made for the live payroll processing features specific to Accounting CS Payroll.

Payroll compliance

  • Pennsylvania. After the 2018.4.4 release of Accounting CS, the state of Pennsylvania added further clarification regarding their updated internet filing requirements for Form REV-1667.  We have updated the form (above the "CUT HERE" line) and the file format to support these requirements. 
  • We have addressed an issue that, in certain circumstances, caused Accounting CS to close unexpectedly when attempting to save changes made to the Form 1094-C and/or 1095-C layouts in the Layout Designer.

    Note: If your firm has modified the predefined version of the 1094-C and 1095-C layouts, the application will not overwrite your existing layouts with the updated versions. If this is the case, you will need to make the necessary changes to your customized layouts manually, or you will need to restore the latest predefined versions using the Layout Designer. To do the latter, expand the 1095 Forms tree and select the layout from the Layouts list pane in the Layout Designer and then choose File > Restore Default.
