The lack of this feature lets this product down

 

"Exporting payments to bank . Create an .aba file"

Current Status: Done
Last Changed: December 2015

Hi Everyone

Thank you for your feedback and showing your support for this idea.

I'm pleased to announce that you can create an ABA file  for paying your employees in the recent MYOB Essentials update. Do take a look at Making tracking your invoices and paying your employees even easier for more information to this process.

Once again thank you all for your comments and voting for this idea.

I Agree totally with rossi.

 

It is unthinkable that  any new product would not contain these features. Especially when the opposition on-line products do.  MYOB already know how to create these files in other products - why not add this feature to Essentials.

 

I am seriously thinking about using Quickbooks.

Thank you very much for your vote and comment @LJPhysio

 

Creating .ABA file in MYOB Essentials Accounting is definitely a popular idea. I have shared your feedback with the relevant team, hopefully we can see it implemented in a future update.

MYOB Essentails has the ability to process (pay) 20+ employees with their payroll function. I dont want to be doing this one by one! This should be an absolute priority MYOB. The question to ask is whay is it not already a feature? MYOB need to look to focus their $ on cloud products and not the hybrid products (2015.2) which will be surpassed in take up by cloud based. Think ahead MYOB.

Sorry MYOB, I don't understand!!

How do you expect small business owners to pay staff? Are you expecting small business owners to copy & Paste Bank account details every week?? 

Again I don't understand how you didn't build this feature into the system, as it is I feel it's totally unworkable long term because mistakes will happen.
