Can you please update the software to allow a dissection function where one of the entries is greater than the amount recieved or paid? Some of our client need to break down transactions with negative amounts.


For example when  a client receives payments where withholding tax is deducted.  For example amount received is $950, this needs to be coded accordingly


Cr Gross income $1000

Cr GST $150

Dr W/H tax $200


This function was easily handled in Banklink but we can not do it in MYOB Essentials


"negative amount in dissection"

Current Status: Done
Last Changed: January 2015

Thanks for your suggestion. You can now enter in negative lines when entering transactions in MYOB Essentials.

Thansk Steven, I'd missed that in the 'new' banking materials.
