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.

After you have successfully sent your enrollment file and received verification, you are ready to create and transmit your EFTPS payment file. Before beginning this procedure, be sure to print and review your payroll reports (choose File > Print Reports) to verify the payment amounts retrieved or entered are correct. These are the amounts that are used in the file to send to EFTPS.

  1. Choose Utilities > EFTPS Batch Filer Export and click the Payment tab.
  2. Verify or modify the batch file location. See Maintaining EFTPS files
  3. In the Payment tab of the EFTPS Batch Filer Export dialog, enter the appropriate data for the open client.
  4. Complete the required fields in the Payment tab, as appropriate for the selected client.
  5. Choose the appropriate transmission software.
  6. Click the Create button to create the Payment file and save it to the selected file location.
  7. Open your EFTPS bank software and import the EFTPS payment file by following either the Importing and Transmitting Payment or Enrollment Files for EFTBF (Batch Filer) or the Importing and Transmitting Payment or Enrollment Files for BatchFilerPC32 procedure.
