Under Deductions, click Add deductions and choose Child support.
Enter the amount to be deducted each pay. This amount will only apply to this employee.
Next time you do a pay run for the employee, the child support deduction will be included.
Protected net earnings
Employees who are required to pay child support are entitled to keep 60% of their net (after-tax) earnings. If a child support deduction will leave the employee with less than 60% of their net pay, the child support deduction will be adjusted automatically to comply with the protected net earnings rule. For more information visit the Inland Revenue website.
Can I change the account my deductions are allocated to?
Child support deductions withheld from pays are allocated to the linked account you've set in MYOB for your payroll deductions (Accounting menu > Manage linked accounts > Payroll tab).
If you'd like your deductions to be allocated to a different account, you'll need to change this linked account. This affects the accounting side of MYOB so you might want help from your accounting advisor before doing this. They can also help work out if you should create another liability account for this purpose.
