Employee ID Missing

Hi there,

 

We recently created a new MYOB file for a new entity, it is identical to our previous file however we have noticed the new file doesnt have the "Employee ID" field in the employee card files. which is an auto generated ID in our previous file.

 

Is this a setting that we need to change or is this no longer a feature?

 

Thank you

    As this field is only used for STP Reporting, it only shows once the file is registered for STP Reporting.

     

    Take care if you are changing the company file mid year. I recommend you Finalise in both the original file for all payrolls to that date, then report and finalise in the new file from that date - do not bring YTD payroll history across.

     

    The reason being the employee id will be different in the new file and you may have a hard time sorting this out if you bring payroll YTD amounts across to the new file.

     

    Regards

      I have swapt payroll providers mid year and was not aware of the need to finalise the MYOB payroll before leaving. Since the new balances were brought over I need to included the employees ID from MYOB to the new system. Could you please tell me where I can access them on MYOB EDGE.

       

      Thanks
