CHANGES
All CSA products
Important! If you are running Creative Solutions Accounting from a network installation, you will be
prompted to run the desktop setup on each workstation the first time CSA is launched after applying this
update. In a Terminal Server environment, you must run the desktop setup from each terminal server that
runs CSA.
Note: You must log in to your computer as an administrator to download and apply software updates via
CS Connect™ and to run the desktop setup. Be certain to restart your computer after running the desktop
setup to insure that all components are installed correctly.


We have updated the Payroll Journal report to provide a value for the average number of hours per
check to make it easier to comply with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. To include this
amount on the report, mark the Employee totals checkbox and either the Hours:Totals checkbox or
the Show components checkbox on the General tab of the Payroll Journal Options dialog.
State Payroll Tax modules
We have updated the following forms to the latest versions available from the agencies and also made
the following changes.
 Alaska. Form TQ01C.
 Arizona. Forms A1-QRT and A1-QRT (p2)
 Connecticut. Form CT-941
 Delaware. Form W1Q 9701
 Florida. Forms RT-6, RT-6A, RT-6NF, and RTS-3
 Georgia. Forms G-7(M) and G-7(Q)
 Illinois.
 Forms IL-941 and UI-3/40
 The Edit Employee Detail dialog in the Payroll Tax Processing window now displays monthly
SUTA amounts when the option to enable monthly SUTA wage filing is marked and data is
retrieved from the first or second month of a quarter.
 We have addressed an issue that caused the Illinois Monthly UI Wage Reporting worksheet to
include nontaxable pay item amounts in the monthly employee totals.
 Maine. Forms 941 ME, 941-C1-ME, Schedule 1, Schedule 1 (C1), Schedule 2, and Schedule 2 (C1)
 Michigan.
 Form UIA-1028 (rev 2/13), currently available on the Unemployment Insurance Agency website,
has not been finalized. The state is currently working on revising this form to include the
Apportionment checkbox that was originally included in the previous version of Form UIA-1028.
We are checking for the release of this form daily and will make it available as soon as an
updated version has been released. Please note the bulk internet file version of Form UIA-1028 is
currently available to be filed.

have processed payroll tax forms using Global Payroll Tax Processing in the application.

Engagement CS®


We have addressed an issue that prevented CSA help topics from displaying correctly when

Microsoft Word documents that were opened from within the engagement and that contained links to
other files.
