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.

For live payroll processing only

Use the Impound tab of the Setup > Clients screen to set up impound information for each client.

  1. Choose Setup > Clients.
  2. For new clients, enter all necessary information for the client in the Main tab, Payroll Information tab, Payroll Taxes tab, and Billing tab of the Clients screen. For existing clients, verify the client information.
  3. Click the Impound tab.
  4. In the Transactions to fund section, mark the checkboxes next to the transaction types that you want to fund for this client.
  5. If you are funding transactions for tax agents or payroll agents, specify whether to fund all or selected agents. If appropriate, click the Ellipsis Ellipsis button button to select specific agents.
  6. For each transaction type, use the drop-down lists to select the appropriate impound bank accounts to be used for the deposit and withdrawal accounts and, if appropriate, the date on which funding should begin. If the default option (none) is selected in the Deferral date field, all transactions of that type are subject to funding regardless of the transaction date.

    Note: The drop-down lists for the Deposit account and Withdrawal account fields include all impound bank accounts that are set up to fund that specific type of transaction (in the Funding section of the Setup > Firm Information > Impound Bank Accounts screen).

  7. In the Source section, click the Ellipsis Ellipsis button button to open the Source dialog and choose whether to use the client's bank account or impound bank account as the source of check reference numbers, check layouts, and images to be used when printing checks for payroll, tax agents, or payroll agents.
  8. Click the Enter button to save this information.
