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.

The application includes a number of predefined layouts for payroll checks. This topic gives a brief description of each check layout and provides the option to view an example of each layout so that you can see which ones are appropriate for your purposes.

To view the sample layouts on your screen, be sure to maximize the browser.

Notes

  • The check layouts are designed to match check styles that are available from Forms CS.
  • All of the layouts can be modified using the Layout Designer.
  • All check layout names indicate where the check falls in relation to the stub(s). "Top Check" indicates that the check prints first and the stub(s) follow. "Middle Check" indicates a stub-check-stub configuration.
  • Two-column layouts generally display deduction and withholding information together. Three-column layouts generally display deduction and withholding information separately.
  • All check layouts other than the 403L, 404L, 664L, 800L, and 811L include the MICR line variable, which enables you to print MICR information on the check stock. You will need to use MICR toner in your printer to enable your bank to read the MICR information.
  • All payroll check layouts include variables for direct deposit information. For those clients who do not process using direct deposit, you can easily remove the direct deposit information variables from the layout.
  • All payroll check layouts contain both current and YTD information. Layouts that use duplicate stubs contain both the current and YTD information on both stubs. All other layouts present Current information on the top stub and YTD information on the bottom stub, and have more room for detail.
