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 Client Options dialog enables you to verify the application to which you will export data, to specify details to include in the export file, and to update the references for each type of entry for that specific client.

Choose File > Export > Transactions and click the Client Options button next to the appropriate client in the Client Selection grid.

Notes

  • When client transaction data is modified for the client in either the Payroll Information tab of the Clients screen, or the Client Options dialog, those changes are automatically updated in both areas of the application.
  • The application enables you to export payroll and vendor transaction data from the application in a generic file format (IIF) that is readable by QuickBooks Pro.

Fields & buttons

  • Format. In the Export to program drop-down list, select the application to which you want to export transactions for this client.
  • File Details. This section contains many of the same options found in the Payroll Journal Entry Export section of the Setup > Clients > Payroll Information tab. Any changes you make in this section will be reflected in the Payroll Information tab and vice versa.
    • Details to include. Mark the checkboxes next to the types of transactions to include in the export file.

      Note: The option to export in either detail or summary format depends on the type of transaction you are exporting.

      • If you are exporting payroll checks, specify whether you want the files to be exported in detail or summary format.
      • If you are exporting vendor payments, the transactions will always be exported in detail format and include each vendor transaction in the selected date range as an individual check, each using the reference numbers associated with that check.
      • If you are exporting impounded liabilities, the transactions will always be exported in the summary format. A separate journal entry will be created for the impounded tax agent liabilities, impounded payroll agent liabilities, and impounded firm vendor liabilities in the selected date range and will use the reference specified in the associated Reference field.
    • References. Specify a reference to be used for payroll checks or impounded liabilities as appropriate.
  • Impound Bank Accounts. This grid includes all impound bank accounts set up in the Setup > Firm Information > Impound Bank Accounts screen. Mark the checkbox associated with each impound bank account for which you want to export the reconciliation adjustments, and then specify the first and last statements (based on statement ending date) for which you want to export the adjustments.

    By default, the export file will use the reference specified in the Reconciliation J/E reference field in the Main tab of the Setup > Firm Information > Impound Bank Accounts screen. If you change the reference in this grid, the new reference will apply to this export only.

  • Format. In the Export to program drop-down list, select the application to which you want to export transactions for this client. To export one transaction for each reconciliation adjustment in the selected date range, choose the Detail option. To export one journal entry for all reconciliation adjustments in the selected date range, choose the Summary option.
