Good Afternoon

 

I just came accross this with a client and couldn't believe that this feature was available.  

 

Our client is on MYOB Essentials and wanted to create an ABA file for bills being paid today.  As this has  been implemented for Payroll it seems only natural that this would be done for supplier invoices as well.

 

This needs to be implemented as soon as possible as it is very difficult to recommend a client to move to MYOB Essentials when there is no ABA file creation for payments to be made.  This client operates using a Mac so they are limited with MYOB online offerings.  

 

Regards

This feature would enable automation of payments as part of a complete end to end workflow. Without it, we can capture supplier invoice details in one system and have the invoices turn up in MYOB, but the payment still needs to be made separately through the bank's app or portal. Hard to convince users to adopt new systems when details need to be entered twice.

Does MYOB have any intention to add this feature to Essentials? It's such a shortfall and should absolutely be a priority.

Quickbooks Online has been offering this feature of paying supplier bills by generating an ABA file for ages! Their price is $38.50 per month. If MYOB wants to be competitive, this is a MUST.

This is really shocking! I have been working as a bookkeeper for 7 years, and I am running my own business as part-time, I signed up with MYOB one month ago. Today I was trying to pay my suppliers, and found there is no place to enter their banking details, and of course no ABA file can be downloaded. I am wondering if I picked the wrong side!!! I would spend more money with Xero now.

Doesn't seem to be a logical reason to use the intra and create a supplier transaction if it doesn't pay the account at the same time.  Easier to just file the accounts in email.  Would be great if payments can be made via myob.

This is a show stopper for essentials and needs to be sorted immediately.

It would be great feedback to always advise likelihood of update and timeframe, not just that its on someones wishlist!

This is 'essential' as is supplier remittance.

This feature is essential (pardon the pun).  If it can be done for payroll - surely it can be done for suppliers.  I have a few clients that will not transfer to MYOB due to this.

This is a question I now ask client if they want and if so I suggest other software. In this new cloud environment some things are just a must!!

Couldn't agree more. Your post was over 3 years ago. What is MYOB doing? You need to catch up.
