How to setup a deduction in MYOB payroll

Hi there, I was hoping someone can help me.  I need to set up a deduction for personal goods purchased on a company account.  The employee asked me if I can just deduct it from his wages.


Thank you in advance

Re: How to setup a deduction in MYOB payroll

Hi @AdriHurst


In MYOB Payroll (Desktop NZ software) you can select to deduct a value from an employee by creating a Pre-tax or Post-tax deduction. One of these can be created using the Maintenance>>Maintain Pay Codes and select the New button. You would need to select the type of code, give the code a pay code and description. Once that code has been created you can select to add in a default pay rate (or if the value varies you could select Allow rate to be modified when entering pay details). 

After that code has been set you can go to Maintain Employees>>Select the relevant employee>>Select the Pay Defaults/Totals tab and select New to add that new pay code to the employee. Do make sure that you add in a 1 to Quantity and have the required rate added.

Kind Regards,
