Is MYOB going to add the option to have pay items be calculated as a percentage of the base rate?
I.e. casual loading, penalty rates or leave loading rates being a percentage of the standard base rate?
Seems an incredible shortfall on MYOB's behalf to not have this option, as it's now a very manual task to calculate and input these rates for all employees individually.
Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a wealth of knowledge
Currently, Pay Items in MYOB Essentials can either be set to a fixed amount or a per hour amount. To my knowledge, the ability to set a percentage of employee's pay rate for a new earning is not something that we are actively working on with the MYOB Essentials range. Although, this may be something that we do look into for the future.
This response refers to the Hospitality Award
Saturday, Sunday, Public Holiday penalties and annual leave loading are all a percentage of the base rate in our Award. Why on earth would MYOB not have the ability to click on percentage under the rate button in the "edit earnings tab"?
We have staff on 8 different award levels. Instead of selecting 4 "edit earnings" I have to calculate 32 penaltys, enter 32 "edit earnings" and then apply them to 19 members of staff. How ridiculous.
I'm dealing with hospitality and retail awards and the overtime alone is ridiculous. Updating each of them for the 1st July pay increase is going to be such a treat.
MYOB needs to look at this as a matter of urgency because I would absolutely recommend that our clients use Xero for payroll purposes over Essentials at this stage, and I imagine that I wouldn't be the only one.
Saw your response on penal rates and it seems much like a cop out to me. I see posts from others who, like me, have to go through a painstaking process of updating a whole range of items unncessarily. We pay a reasonble amount for this package and serioulsy we expect better than such a glib resopnse.
Thank you for your feedback in regards to MYOB Essentials Pay Items.
As mentioned, we don't have any immediate plans to update MYOB Essentials to be based on a percentage of the employee's pay rate at this time. However, I have shared your comments with the required team.
Hi Graham and everyone else on this thread.
Just wanted to give you an update that we've just released a pay rate multiplier into Essentials.
This will make life considerably easier when working with penantly rates, etc.
To find out more, check out this post.
This is part of some work to deliver a few small but very important features to payroll in Essentials this year.
Thank you to all of you for you patience while we worked to deliver this - and for posting your feedback.
Keep it coming!
