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

When you enable the Payroll service for your client in Accounting CS, you (or your client using Accounting CS Client Access) can use the additional features to quickly and easily process payroll for their business. Before you or your client can begin processing payroll in Accounting CS, there are a few things that need to be set up.

The flowchart below walks you through the process of live payroll processing.

If your firm is impounding for this client, see Live payroll processing workflow - with impounding.
