It would be great to have long service accrual recorded similar to annual leave. This not only useful for employee but essential for employers. It is available on AccountRight why not make it available here. I feel like I'm going backwards in giving my employees information they need. Please make this a priority on Essentials. Can't be too hard. Cheers

Thank you for your post, comments and votes. I understand it would be great to be able to setup and accrue Long Service Leave in MYOB Essentials. We hope to introduce it in a  future update of the software. In the meantime we request everyone wanting this function to please continue to vote and add comments.

Hi @150463

 

Currently this idea has been marked as under consideration at this time we are still investigating adding it into the program with a future release. At this stage we don't have a time frame for when it will be added. However in saying that we are still encouraging clients that would like to see this idea added to vote and comment if required for this idea.

Couldnt agree more. I am operating two systems at the moment just so I can track LSL as we have a few employees becoming due for it.

I am wanting to pay an employee LSL and have followed this thread which appears to have been going for a year now.

I have MYOB essentials - how do I pay my employee LSL when there is no function for it?

You have to go to the Payroll Command Centre and add a new payroll category called Long Service Leave.

Has MYOB made any attempt to address accruing for LSL.

 

In South Australia LSL does not kick in until 7 years from the anniversary start date.

 

It is 1.3 weeks for every year of service, so after 7 years it is 7 x 1.3 = 9.1 weeks, then 1.3 weeks after each anniversary date.

 

It does not accrue per pay period, as holiday pay does, but only after their anniversary start date.

 

I imagine each state has a variation of this system.
