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.

Use the AR Date dialog to override the current accounts receivable date. Accounting CS uses the AR date as the payment date when creating a payment in the Actions > Manage Customer Payments screen. Accounting CS also uses the AR date as the application date for the application transaction that is created from the Actions > Manage Customer Payments screen. By default, the application uses the current system date as the AR date.

Choose Actions > Change AR Date.


  • By default, Accounting CS uses the system date as the AR date. If you change the AR date, the new date applies to the current client only, and Accounting CS resets the date back to the system date each time you open the application.
  • When printing invoices with a future date, you must set the AR date to that future date or beyond. If the AR date is before the invoice date, the application will not print the complete invoice.
  • The application displays the AR date in the status bar, next to the current posting period date. If the AP service is enabled, it will display the AR date next to the AP date.

Fields & buttons
