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.

The State of New York signed into law the Wage Theft Prevention Act, effective April 12, 2011, which requires detailed information to be included on pay stubs for pay rates, gross wages, deductions, and net wages.

By including appropriate variables on the check layouts that you select for New York clients and employees, you can have the application include all of the pay stub information required to comply with this law.

The names of most of the check layout variables provided with the application are sufficiently descriptive to help you choose appropriate variables to include on the stub portions of your payroll check layouts. In addition, to display certain required information, you may need to select the following payroll check layout variables:
