Employee Wages Split Bank Accounts - Business Pro Payroll




5 Posts

We are in NZ and are due to change from Essentials to Business Pro in about 4 weeks time. We have been told by MYOB help desk that we need to put all split wage accounts into one for the upgrade, but once it is done, we will be able to split wages as previously. This seems to be conflicting with the moderators comments and we are very concerned, as it is vital we have this feature.  It could be that this is going to be available in a months time and we are worrying about nothing, but if we do the changeover and find we cant split, it is going to be a real problem. Does anyone know if this is going to be available in NZ shortly as it is in Australia.

Hi @JamesWren1896


Thank you for your post. I'd like to extend you a warm welcome to the Community Forum. I hope you find it a valuable resource.


MYOB Business doesn't yet allow you to pay employees into multiple accounts. If an employee's pay is split into multiple bank accounts, you should update their banking details so that they are only paid into one account before your file is upgraded. If you leave the employee's pay split into multiple accounts, only the details for the first bank account will be brought across during the upgrade. We don’t have a specific date when it will be available after the upgrade but surely, we will keep you updated once this is already available.


This Help Article: Preparing for MYOB Essentials upgrade will give you all the information regarding with the upgrade.
