Paying PAYG tax from two bank accounts


Is there a way to split the payment of PAYG for the month from two bank accounts.  When I go into "Pay Liabilities" window there doesn't seem to be a way to part pay the tax owing or pay only selected employees.  If not I'll just do a transfer in MYOB between the accounts but thought I'd see if there was a way to avoid this.  Thanks

Don't use Pay Liabilities. Pay your PAYG using  a Spend Money transaction and you can split it over as many payments and bank accounts as you like.

If you use the BAS feature in MYOB you should not be using Pay Liabilities for PAYG.

If my response to your query and has helped, please mark my post as a solution to help others in the future.

Hi @Snichols


Great to see that @GDay53 has offered a potential solution to your enquiry.

If you do wish to pay those values via Pay Liabilities and need to use multiple different bank accounts you would be looking at using a holding account process. I've outlined the process below for you

  1. Create a holding account - Accounts>>Accounts Lists>>New and create a new Asset account ensuring that the Account Type is set to Bank.
  2. Process the Pay Liabilities transaction ensuring that the Pay from Account is that newly created holding account.
  3. Go to Banking>>Spend Money and enter a transaction from the first bank account for the amount you have paid via that account. The Allocation account would be that newly created holding account. 
  4. Repeat Step 3 for each bank account you have made payment from.

Kind regards,
