CHANGES
Accounting
Accounts Payable
We have addressed an issue that prevented the application from allowing an AP date prior to January 1,
2014 to be set in the Actions > Change AP Date dialog.
Financial statement conversion from Creative Solutions Accounting™ (CSA) to
Accounting CS
We have addressed an issue that prevented the application from applying proper cell formatting for
percentage cells for the Decimal places, Negative amounts, and Zero amounts fields for the Percentage
category in the Format tab of the Format > Cells dialog in the Report Designer for converted financial
statements.
Report Designer
We have addressed the following issues.
 An error occurred during attempts to preview or print a custom report using the location and
department distribution variables from the following areas of the variable tree.
 Employee > Deduction Items > Details > Location and Department Distributions
 Employee > Employer Contributions > Details > Location and Department Distributions
 Employee > Pay Items > Details > Location and Department Distributions
 The application displayed a trailing whitespace in right-aligned percentage cells when the percent
sign (%) was set not to display.

In certain circumstances, the application did not allow the editing of text that had been copied from a
CSA transmittal letter and pasted into an Accounting CS letter.
Payroll – General
We have addressed an issue that prevented the application from deleting voided payroll checks, in
certain circumstances.
Payroll compliance



Federal. We have addressed an issue that caused an error to occur when 1099-INT forms with no
CUSIP numbers were printed using the Internet filing method.
Maryland. The application will now create a zero filing notification for Accelerated depositors when
required.
Massachusetts. We have updated the Unemployment Rate dialog (accessed by clicking the Ellipsis
button next to the UI base rate field in the Payroll Taxes tab of the Setup > Clients screen) to reflect
the new Employer Medical Assistance Contribution (EMAC), that became effective January 1, 2014
and that replaces the Unemployment Health Insurance (UHI).
Minnesota. We have updated the Additional Assessment to be 0.00 percent for new clients. For
existing clients, you will need to manually change the rate in the Unemployment Rate dialog
(accessed by clicking the Ellipsis button next to the UI base rate field in the Payroll Taxes tab of the
Setup > Clients screen).
Pennsylvania local. We have addressed an issue that caused an error to occur when the application
created the Pennsylvania Lancaster Copy 1 Internet file.
Payroll form and filing information
The Payroll Form and Filing Information portlet on the Home or Firm dashboard provides the following
information: form approval status, form availability, available filing methods, form due dates, form filing
addresses, tax payment information (for all tax types), agency contact information, new hire reporting
information, payroll resources, and tax calendar (to view and print tax deposit due dates and form due
dates for all federal, state, and certain local tax agents). Click the applicable jurisdiction on the map to
display the federal, state, and local tax form information within the tabbed pages in the lower section of
the portlet. For information on working with portlets, enter “Dashboard portlet: Payroll Form & Filing
Information” in the search field on the application toolbar.
