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 Period End Dates dialog to modify the end date of any period.

Choose Setup > Clients, click the Accounting Information tab, and then click the Edit Dates button, or select a different frequency from the Period frequency field, and then when prompted, choose the years for which to apply the period frequency change (for the current year going forward or for all years).

Fields & buttons

Use the Period end dates grid to enter new period end dates or to verify existing period end dates for the applicable years. To select the date from an onscreen calendar, click the Down arrow button arrow in the field.

By default, the Period End Dates dialog includes dates for at least three years - the current fiscal year, one prior fiscal year, and at least one future fiscal year. You can add dates for an unlimited number of prior years by clicking the Add Prior Year button for each year you want to add.

Highlight the column to which you want to add a week, and then click this button to add a week to the selected year. For clients with a weekly frequency, the application adds a 53rd week to the end of the year. For clients with a thirteen period frequency, the application adds a fifth week to the thirteenth period of the selected year.

Note: For weekly and thirteen period clients, this button is available for only the latest fiscal year and next future fiscal year.

Highlight the column from which you want to remove a week, and then click this button to remove a week from the selected year. For clients with a weekly frequency, the application removes the 53rd week from the end of the year. For clients with a thirteen period frequency, the application removes the fifth week of the thirteenth period of the selected year.

Notes

  • This button is available only for years in which a week has already been added using the Add Week button.
  • For weekly and thirteen period clients, this button is available for only the current fiscal year and the next future fiscal year.
