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 this procedure to transfer general ledger account balances (based on tax code assignments) from a Write-Up CS or Trial Balance CS client into the client's database within UltraTax CS.

Steps in CSA

  1. Specify the data path for UltraTax CS (on the File Locations tab of the Setup > User Preferences dialog in CSA).
  2. Specify the appropriate tax codes (from the Setup > Chart of Accounts window in CSA).

Steps in UltraTax CS

  1. Open UltraTax CS and verify that the appropriate file locations have been specified for the CS Accounting Products (on the File Locations tab of the Setup > User Preferences dialog).
  2. Open the UltraTax CS client and click the CS Accounting Products (Import) button on the toolbar.
  3. In the Import from CS Accounting Products dialog, double-click the CSA client whose balances you want to import and click Import.
  4. When the Import is complete, click the Done button.

Notes

  • If the imported balances are incorrect, the import file used by UltraTax CS may need to be updated. To force an update of the file, open CSA and choose Setup > Chart of Accounts. Make an edit to any account (for example, to the account description), press ENTER to save the changes, close the Chart of Accounts window, and then repeat the import from within UltraTax CS.
  • For a Trial Balance CS client: When importing amounts for the Schedule M-3 in UltraTax CS, balances must be imported as adjusted balances. The amounts for columns B and C will be calculated based on the Tax Adjustment journal entries entered for the CSA client. If the amounts for column B and C are incorrect, the journal entry import file used by UltraTax CS may need to be updated.

    To force an update of the file, choose Tasks > Adjusting Journal Entries in CSA, make an edit to any entry, press Enter to save the changes, close the Adjusting Journal Entries window, and then repeat the import from within UltraTax CS.

  • For a Trial Balance CS client: UltraTax CS does not support the import of amounts that are posted directly to M-3 Tax Codes using the Tax Adjustment - Tax Code journal entry type. Adjustments made to the M-3 Tax Codes must be made to applicable accounts using the Tax Adjustment adjusting journal entry type.
  • For more information about tax codes and the import procedures in UltraTax CS, search on Tax codes from the index of the UltraTax CS help browser.
