For each bank or credit card transaction on this page, you need to either:
- match it to an existing MYOB transaction (or bank transfer)
- allocate it to one of your MYOB accounts.

What to look for
When you match or allocate a transaction, you’re identifying whether or not it has been entered in MYOB. You should check for:
- Transactions already entered in MYOB (e.g. invoices and bills, or payments like Spend Money and Receive Money transactions). You should match these bank transactions to the corresponding MYOB transaction. See Matching bank transactions.
- Transactions not entered in MYOB (e.g. bank charges, bank interest, cash withdrawals or deposits). You should allocate these bank transactions to the appropriate MYOB account. See Allocating bank transactions.
If you have regularly occurring bank transactions that always have a particular description (such as a transaction containing the text BANK INTEREST), you can set up rules to manage them. The next time these transactions are received or imported, MYOB will allocate them automatically to an account you choose. For more details, see Creating rules.
Transfers between bank accounts. If you’ve transferred money between two of your bank accounts, MYOB can match the two bank transactions, even if you haven’t entered a bank transfer transaction into MYOB. You should confirm that this match is correct. See Transferring funds from a bank transaction.
Why am I getting the error 'An unbalanced transaction may not be recorded' when allocating a transaction when it does balance?
This is a bug and our experts are looking into it.
What keyboard shortcuts are available on the Bank transactions page?
There's a range of keyboard shortcuts available to help make allocating transactions faster. To reveal these shortcuts, press CTRL and / (PC) or CMD and / (Mac) simultaneously.
Why are some dates on my bank feed different to my bank statement?
The dates on bank feeds can vary to the dates on your bank statement due to the difference between the transaction date and the date the transaction was processed by your bank. This usually occurs due to weekends and public holidays which delay the bank processing.
This means a transaction made on a Saturday may not be processed until a Tuesday. The transaction will then come through on Wednesday’s bank feed with Tuesday’s date. The bank will subsequently adjust the date to show on your statement as the actual transaction date.
This leaves your bank feed transaction dated for Tuesday, but on your bank statement it shows with Saturday’s date. Although transactions are still able to be allocated and matched normally, this date discrepancy could pose some reconciliation challenges when they occur on either side of a month, quarter or a financial year.
If you need help working out the best way to handle these discrepancies, check with your accounting advisor or contact product support.
Can I attach documents to a bank transaction?
Yes, you sure can. See Attaching documents to bank transactions.
I've imported a bank statement and now I have duplicated transactions in MYOB - what can I do?
This can occur if you've imported a bank statement which includes transactions which have already been brought into MYOB via bank feeds.
To fix this:
What can I do if there's duplicated bank feed transactions?
If there are duplicated transactions in the bank feed, the only way you can get rid of them at the moment is to delete the entire day's bank feed. Individual or partial day's transactions can't be deleted.
