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 Workers' Compensation Detail dialog to specify the location- and department-specific GL liability and expense accounts for workers' compensation codes needed to make detailed payroll journal entries by location and department.

Choose Setup > Employees and click the Workers' Compensation tab. In the Workers' Compensation grid, click the Ellipsis button for the applicable code.

Fields & buttons

To activate the workers' compensation code for specific location/department combinations for the employee, mark the Active checkbox next to the appropriate location/department combinations.


  • When some combinations are marked as active in the Detail dialog and others are not, the Active checkbox in the Worker's Compensation grid of the Workers' Compensation tab displays as mixed.
  • When the GL liability and expense accounts for a location/department combination in the Detail dialog differ from the accounts specified for the other combinations, the GL Liability and GL Expense fields in the Worker's Compensation grid displays (See details). Show me.
