The following procedure explains how to fund tax agent and payroll agent transactions.

Note: If the firm impound bank account is set up to limit fund processing to printed checks only, then unprinted checks and open liabilities associated with that impound account, for the applicable agent, will not be displayed in the Funding dialog. In that situation, you will need to print the checks or pay the liabilities before completing step 2 in the procedure below.

  1. Either enter unprinted checks to the appropriate agents (via the Actions > Enter Transactions screen) or, if there are liabilities to consider, print payroll checks to generate open liabilities to the agents.
  2. Choose Actions > Process Direct Deposit.
  3. In the Process Direct Deposit screen, click the Funding button.
  4. In the Funding dialog, mark the checkboxes next to all the transactions for which you want to create ACH files. Click the plus and minus signs to expand and collapse the transaction lists.

    Note: You can choose to select or deselect all transactions by right-clicking anywhere within the screen.

  5. With all appropriate transactions selected, click the Process button.
  6. Click Done to close the Funding dialog.
  7. In the Process Direct Deposit screen, the funded transactions are selected by default. Mark the checkboxes next to any other transactions for which you want to create ACH files. Click the plus and minus signs to expand and collapse the transaction lists.

    Notes

    • You can choose to select or deselect all transactions by right-clicking anywhere within the screen.
    • To display the funding details (fund type, payee, and amount) of transactions associated with funds, select the transactions and click the View Funding Detail button.
    • By default, after transactions are processed in the Funding dialog, the application automatically selects those funding transactions in the Process Direct Deposit grid when the Funding dialog closes, making it easy to immediately process ACH files. If you want the application to also select any associated transaction amounts, mark the Automatically select associated direct deposit transactions after processing funding transactions checkbox in the Process Direct Deposit Options dialog.
  8. With all appropriate transactions selected, click the Create Files button.
  9. In the Process Direct Deposit File dialog, you can view the information that will go into the header records for the ACH files. The only field you can modify is the File Name field. To accept the information and create the ACH files, click OK.
  10. Transmit the ACH file to your financial institution to complete the funding.
  11. Choose Actions > Manage Impound Payments and create the agent payments.

You can show your clients their impound bank activity, which includes deposits and payments, by printing the Impound Client Activity report.
