There are 3 steps in creating a client file. This process needs to be done only once for each client as you transition your file to Jazzit templates. In subsequent years, Jazzit rolls forward the ending balances to become next year’s opening balances.
Copy Template; Setting up the Document Manager
Import Client Trial Balance; Getting the Accounting Information into CaseWare
Assign Mapping; Mapping the Accounts
|Use CaseWare’s “Copy Components” function to copy the desired Jazzit templates and mapping structure into your client files. We provide the master files to copy from.||Import the client's accounting data into your CaseWare trial balance and engagement properties. The Jazzit templates will then pull information into the working papers, letters, and financial statements based on the assigned map numbers in Step 3.||Jazzit uses a simplified mapping chart. Our mapping structure helps to reduce the time to map the accounts and provides feedback regarding which GIFI code is being assigned to your accounts (to be exported to your T2).|
In addition to the above information, Jazzit also has a number of bulletins and videos to help you with various aspects of your Jazzit experience: file preparer User Resources
