Remote payroll features administration — Accounting CS

Alerts and notices

Through remote payroll features, your firm can do the following.

  • Prepare payroll and vendor checks and then transmit a PDF file of check images for a client to print.
  • Provide clients with secure, online access to enter payroll data at their convenience and make the payroll data available to your firm instantly. More information.
    When a client enters payroll data remotely, you start by exporting timesheet information from Accounting CS Payroll to the client’s portal. The client then logs in to NetClient CS, updates the employee information (if necessary), and completes the electronic timesheet. When you select a payroll schedule in the Enter Batch Payroll Checks screen, Accounting CS Payroll retrieves the information from the client’s portal and you can process the client’s payroll without having to enter any additional data.

Note: Remote Check Printing and Remote Payroll are billable modules (some exceptions may apply).
