Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017. CSA will not include 2017 tax rates or payroll forms, so, for 2017 and beyond, you will need to process payroll in another application. We recommend Accounting CS Payroll and myPay Solutions. For more information, see the following topics.

Use the Chart of Accounts dialog to add a new general ledger account, to change the type or description of a general ledger account, or to delete an account. The client's Chart of Accounts information is stored in numeric order, by GL account number.

Please complete all steps that apply to the modules for which you are licensed and that you want to use for processing the selected client.

  • Changing the Chart of Accounts mask after initial setup is not recommended. Therefore, when defining a client's Chart of Accounts mask, you should allow for the growth of the client's business. This will help minimize the need to modify the Chart of Accounts in the future.
  • For a payroll-only client, you can set up Locations and Departments by choosing Change Chart of Accounts Mask from the F3 or right-click context menu in the Chart of Accounts dialog.
