Under Deductions, click Add deductions and choose Court fines.
Enter the details of the court fine:
Enter the Balance owing. This is the total amount of the court fine to be deducted over time. Once this balance is reached, the deductions will stop.
Enter the Amount per pay to be deducted.
Next time you do a pay runfor the employee, the court fine deduction will be included.
Protected net earnings
Employees who are required to pay court fines are entitled to keep 60% of their net (after-tax) earnings. If a court fines deduction will leave the employee with less than 60% of their net pay, the court fines deduction will be adjusted automatically to comply with the protected net earnings rule.
You can check the Balance owing on the court fine at any time in the employee's standard pay (Payroll > Employees > click the employee > Standard pay tab).
Can I change the account my deductions are allocated to?
Court fines 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.
