Can MYOB design & include in Essentials:


Entitlement Balance detail report which shows A] by pay period, and B] for each leave type:

  • employee name,
  • opening balance leave hours,
  • leave hours accrued,
  • leavehours taken,
  • leave available hours (cumulative).


Please base design on "Entitlement Balance (detail) report" which is in Account Edge Pro v13.5


"MYOB Essentials - to provide Leave Entitlement Balance Detailed Report"

Current Status: Done
Last Changed: April 2021

Hi Everyone

MYOB Essentials has been expanded to include additional reports, one of these reports is the Leave balance (detail) Report. This report will showcase leave available, hours taken and accrued on for employees basis based on a specified date range. This report will be similar in nature to the AccountRight and AccountEdge's Entitlement Balance [Detail] report.


Note: This report is available for the new MYOB Essentials platform. Existing (original) MYOB Essentials platform users will be migrated across to the new platform in due course based on the complexity of their MYOB Essentials product level. At the time of posting, migrations are already underway.

Hi @Jacqui_M 


Yes, the newer MYOB Essentials Platform's Leave balance report will show the Value for the entitlement (similar to that of AccountRight's Entitlement Balance Summary report). The value being calculated as the available hours multiplied by employee's hourly rate.


Example of report is below:

I have been advised for 5 years that the leave report is in the works - still waiting.


NZ have had a leave report for more than 5 years.


It is such a basic report for a payroll software!!


I dont think we're asking for too much?????
