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.

  1. Select the employee's name from the employee list of the Employees window.
  2. Right-click outside of any data fields in the Employees window and choose Tip Allocation from the menu, or choose Edit > Tip Allocation.
  3. In the Tip Allocation dialog, enter information in the Gross tipped sales and/or the Tip percentage fields, as necessary.
  4. Choose Tipped sales or Hours worked as the method of calculation.
  5. Click the Calculate button.
  6. On the Tip Allocation Worksheet, click Print if you want to print a copy of the worksheet.
  7. Click Close to close the Tip Allocation Worksheet.
  8. When the Tip Allocation dialog redisplays, click Post to post the allocated tips to the individual employees, overwrite the previous posting, and close the Tip Allocation dialog.

In order to post to an employee, the employee must have an Allocated Tips pay item on their Earnings tab. (No item properties need to be set up for this item.)
