If you've added your employees into MYOB Essentials (where you set up the basic details of your employees, including pay rate), you're almost ready to do your first pay run. But first, complete your payroll settings.
This includes choosing the bank account you’ll be paying wages from, choosing if you'll be paying employees electronically, and some payslip display settings.
If you want to pay any employees electronically and you bank with ASB, ANZ, BNZ, Westpac or Kiwibank, select the option Pay employees using bank files. You can then enter your bank details and any information you want to appear on bank statements.
If you'll be paying all your employees cash or cheque, leave the Pay employees using bank files option deselected.
When you're finished entering details on this tab, click Save settings, or continue your payroll setup by clicking the Payslips tab. See below for details.
Select the Show personal leave entitlement on payslip option if you want to include accrued personal (sick) leave on employee payslips. If this option is not selected, only the annual leave and alternative holiday balances will show on payslips.
Set up payslip email options
When you email payslips to your employees, the payslip is sent as a PDF document attached to an email message. You can change the text in the email message, and choose to send payslips to additional email addresses. Your employees won't be able to see that you have emailed their payslip to these other addresses, so please keep their privacy in mind.
When you do a pay run, click in the Email column to select which employees you want to email payslips to.
