The Payroll Getting Started guide helps you understand and set up the ACS Payroll module.
First, we suggest reading through the Startup Outline. You could even check off each setup step as you complete it.
After reading through the Startup Outline, you can set up posting options, the group insurance table, and time off options for your employees. Then, you can define adjustments, cost centers, pay types, and worker's compensation. You can also add or update local tax tables, or add accounts to the chart of accounts, if you need to.
Once you've set up the module and defined lists, you can begin entering employee records. If you're rolling out Payroll during the middle of the year, you can enter accumulated W-2 totals to date.
Finally, you're ready to begin entering time sheets and complete the payroll posting process.
