Enter historical payroll prior to conversion to Essentials



I have just upgraded to Essentials, with all my files being converted by MYOB.


I now need to re-enter 10 pay runs so that the employees payslips will show a true YTD figure.


I understand that I will then need to raise a journal so that I do not have duplicate entries on the bank account.


Does anybody know the account codes I should use?


Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi @Melanie75


I would recommend speaking to an accountant in regards to what accounts, amounts and tax codes you should be using for your transactions.

However in saying that if you do need to enter history for MYOB Essentials (NZ) you would do so via Employees>>Selecting the employee>>Selecting the Pay History tab>>Select "Enter pay history prior to using MYOB Essentials". This will allow you to enter the Gross earnings, Hours worked, PAYE and take home pay values for those pays recorded prior to using MYOB Essentials - which in turn will be used in leave calculations, year to date values on payslips/on screen however NOT in reports.

Kind Regards,
