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 the Tasks > Retrieve command to retrieve the CBS client's export files into Accountant's Assistant. When retrieving information, Accountant's Assistant looks in the default path specified in the Setup > File Locations dialog.

Be sure the GL and payroll periods are set to the appropriate dates relative to the client data you are about to retrieve.

  • The current GL period should correspond to the earliest month represented in the client's export files. No transactions will be transferred into a GL period prior to the current CSA fiscal year at the time of transfer.
  • Payroll periods are transferred into CSA based on the options selected on the PayCheck tab of the Setup > Miscellaneous Information dialog in Accountant's Assistant - either the current payroll period ending date or the month of the check date.

Choose Tasks > Retrieve, or click the Retrieve button icon on the shortcut bar, to retrieve your client's exported information.

Note: If client data from a previous retrieval still exists in your Accountant's Assistant application, you will see a prompt that allows you to choose whether you want to remove old client data and continue with the procedure or to discontinue the retrieval process.
