Accidentally deleted payroll entry from last Financial Year

Hi all,


I have accidentally deleted a payroll entry of year 2017. And MYOB didnot allow me enter it back.


I did do the manual record journal entry. It worked for the balance but it did not work for the Payroll Actitivy Summary as that journal entry did not linked to the that employee. And his summary in MYOB is different from the actutal payment.


How can I fix this payroll summary of that employee?


Thank you.

Re: Accidentally deleted payroll entry from last Financial Year



Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find plenty of useful information.


With Payroll once you have rolled over a year the ONLY way to fix up any errors in a previous year is to restore a backup onto your desktop and enter the correct into that year.

For a 2017 pay you will need to go back and find your backup from when you processed the Payment Summaries in June or July 2017 and restore that backup.

I would get rid of the journal you did and just do the correct entry in the 2017 year.

NOTE as this is a restored file just do the correction and run the Payment Summary again then back it up again before closing the file and then get rid of it so you don't confuse it with your current file.
