Hi there

 

At the moment MyobLive doesn't seem to have much automated functionalityfor BAS. 

 

Given that the system already calcuates the BAS it seems really odd that the user has to manually create a spend journal or a reversal to allocate GST Paid, Collected, PAYG instalment etc, and also fill in the ATO forms.  Surely this could all be automated, afterall it's the most confusing thing for small business and the one where MYOB already does much of the heavy lifting (in my case, the main reason for using the package in the first place).

Hi Everyone

MYOB Essentials allows users to lodge their BAS online. Check out Lodge your activity statement for more information.

Totally agree. This is a greatly needed feature.

 

Please add my vote to the list.

My suggestions is that LiveAccounts "GST report for activity statement" include the PAYGW figures on the report and not just the GST disclosures.

 

This would be really hand rather than having to run two reports to get the figures.

 

Thanks for considering my suggestion.

Thanks for your feedback on this. Making a single report that shows you the commonly needed BAS information, including your PAYG details is certainly something that we would be happy to look into. Those who would also like to see this added please make sure that you vote on this suggestion.

I agree - this needs to be implemented so we can prepare the BAS a lot quicker.  It will also ensure the PAYG Instalment identified by the ATO is included as well.

Here it is.  Please vote for it so the votes don't get split between threads.

When will I be able to submit a TFN declaration out of Essentials? How far away is connection with SBR?

Hi tf.  Unfortunately there hasn't been an update on adding the SBR to Essentials.  We are hoping for it to be availabler later this year but I don't have any exact dates we can provide at this time.  We will update this idea as soon as we have some further information.

This forum seems to be a waste of space and only really exists to appease annoyed subscribers. 

 

Far too many "We will consider it", "later on but no date as yet" responses. 


If you truly want to make this product exceptional, stop mucking about and implement some of the ideas that have been bandied about. A new template, colour scheme and minor cosmetic changes are simply not enough in this day and age. 


Hell, If I were MYOB, i'd strive for the best product possible by listening to the users not the blokes in a shirt and tie that are straight out of uni. 


Perhaps these forums may one day see a start-up take all of the ideas from here and actually create a product that is worth using.
