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.

Rounding of financial statements in Trial Balance CS is based on the report balance as defined in the Setup > Balance Definitions dialog.

While financial statements can be established with the rounding option using any of the five available bases (unadjusted, adjusted, report, tax, and other), the report basis is the only basis that assures an in-balance, properly footed financial statement.

  1. Choose Setup > Balance Definitions to open the Balance Definitions dialog.
  2. Select the Report balance definition in the list pane of the Balance Definitions dialog.
  3. Click the Edit button, and then mark the adjusting entry type(s) in the Entry Types group box that are to be included as part of the Report balance definition.
  4. Click the Enter button to save your choices, and then click the Done button to close the Balance definitions dialog. The selected entry types that are included in this balance definition are accumulated when the specific basis is requested in a financial statement.
Note: The Report balance definition, along with Tax and Other can be edited to include all of the different types of adjusting entries.
