Payroll: Enter 4 digit hours/quantities

When using Essentials Payroll to pay truck drivers, if they are using the cents per kilometer method then the truck drivers are paid per km. A truck driver will do over a 1000 km per week easily and this cannot be entered into an Essentials Payroll as there is a limit on the hourly field of 999.

This makes sense for a normal payroll but makes it unusable for the trucking industry that pays their drivers via this method.

Maybe a tick in the settings to allow this?

    Hi Everyone

    MYOB Essentials allows users to have 4+ characters in the quantity/hours field within the Calculate pays window.


    Note: This payroll change is available for the new MYOB Essentials platform. Existing (original) MYOB Essentials platform users will be migrated across to the new platform in due course based on the complexity of their MYOB Essentials product level. At the time of posting, migrations are already underway.
