My business transitioned to the new MYOB Essentials a few days ago (January 2023) and I have run my first pay run, it has been quite the journey! This idea would significantly increase efficiency and save me much needed time as this now takes a lot longer to do!
I am now required to enter "Hours in a pay cycle" for each employee (under Employees > Payroll details > Salary and wages. If I put 0, it says "hours in a pay cycle must be greater than zero" although most of my employees are part time and casual and this means during the pay run I need to zero out every single employees base hours (especially ones who only work weekends, or may not have worked that week at all). This causes a big slow down and also shows the incorrect annual salary on their payslip (my part time and casual employees should not show any salary on the pay slip, like it was before in MYOB Essentials).
