Allocating Single Payroll Payment

We have started paying our employees via one payment through ANZ. Now when the transaction comes in via the Bank Feed, I'm not sure how to allocate it.


When we used to make separate payments, MYOB Essentials used to automatically allocate it to the Payroll transaction. But now it won't let me.


As an example:

Employee 1: $250 wages

Employee 2: $300 wages

Employee 3: $350 wages


but it shows as ONE transaction in our bank feed transaction of $900. 


Any suggestions on what account to allocate the $900 to?


Cheers, Graeme
