CHANGES
Workpapers CS™
We have addressed an issue that prevented the application from displaying the new Group brokerage
forms checkbox in the Preferences tab of the Setup > Firm Information > Firm screen for firms using the
application via Virtual Office CS® or Software as a Service (SaaS).
Reports


We have added the following payroll reports to provide information for Affordable Care Act reporting
purposes.
 Average Full-Time Employees Worksheet. This report lists the average number of employees,
including the number of full-time employees, full-time equivalent employees, and the average
number of employees for every month included in the selected date range.
 Average Hours Worksheet. This report lists the average number of hours worked for all or for
selected employees, including the beginning date of the first pay period, the ending date of the
last pay period, the number of weeks worked, the number of hours worked, and the average
number of hours worked per week.
Note: Only staff members who are in security groups that have access to the Report Designer are
automatically granted access to new reports. To grant permission for new reports to other security
groups, mark the checkboxes for the appropriate reports in the Reports tab of the Setup > Firm
Information > Security Groups screen and/or the Setup > Firm Information > Client Security Groups
screen for each applicable security group.
We have updated the Tax Deposits payroll report to group state and local taxes by their jurisdiction.
Note: If your firm has modified the predefined version of a report, an updated version will not
overwrite your existing report. If this is the case, you will need to make the necessary changes to your
customized report manually or you will need to restore the latest predefined version using the Report

Designer. To do the latter, select the report from the Reports list pane in the Report Designer and
then choose File > Restore Default.
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.

agents, payroll tax forms, and payroll tax tables.
Accounting CS Payroll, for live payroll processing
In addition to the changes made for general payroll features listed above for after-the-fact payroll
processing, we have made the following changes for the live payroll processing features specific to
Accounting CS Payroll.
We have addressed the following issues.
 The application did not reflect overridden direct deposit payroll amounts on payroll checks and
reports. This issue would have affected only payroll checks printed using v.2013.1.7 of the
application.
 In certain circumstances, the application did not refresh payroll item amounts from checks that were
imported from NetClient CS® Remote Payroll after the employee rate had been changed.
 The application displayed an incorrect verification level for employee address changes that were
imported into the application via Remote Payroll.
