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.

You can use the Allocate Tips screen to calculate and allocate the tips that employees of large food or beverage establishment clients need to reach the required percent of the company's gross tipped sales.

  1. Choose Actions > Allocate Tips.
  2. Select the client in the Clients field in the upper-right corner of the screen.
  3. In the Year field, select the year for which to allocate tips for the client.
  4. In the Method section, choose whether to allocate tips based on the total amount of sales entered via payroll check entry for the employee during the selected year or based on the total number of hours worked by the employee during the selected year.
  5. In the Allocated tip information fields, enter or modify information as necessary. You can override the retrieved information in certain fields, which recalculates the information in the Calculation grid.

    Note: To display in the Calculation grid, employees must have at least one active pay item that uses the Reported Tips special type.

  6. When you have finished entering or modifying information in this screen and are ready to allocate tips for the selected year for the selected client, click the Allocate button.
