 Is this bank transaction for a deposit or withdrawal you’ve already entered into MYOB Essentials, or for an MYOB Essentials invoice or expense? If so see Matching bank transactions.

If you import a bank transaction that you haven’t entered into MYOB Essentials, you can allocate it to one or more of your MYOB Essentials accounts.

Most transactions that need to be allocated will display an Allocate Me status ( ) on the Bank transactions page.

Managing bank transactions that are automatically allocated

MYOB Essentials will use any allocation rules you’ve set up to automatically allocate bank transactions to your MYOB Essentials accounts (see Using allocation rules). If one of your bank transactions has been automatically allocated, you can check it to confirm that the allocation is correct, or allocate or match the transaction yourself. See To manage bank transactions that are automatically allocated.

To allocate a bank transaction to a MYOB Essentials account  x

  1. Click Banking. The Bank transactions page appears.
  2. In the Bank transactions list, locate the bank transaction you want to allocate.

    To see more transaction details, or split the transaction

    If you want to see more details for the bank transaction, or split it between two or more accounts, click on the bank transaction’s Description. In the Withdrawal details window (if the transaction is an amount you’ve paid) or the Deposit details window (if the transaction is an amount that’s been deposited) that appears, you can see more transaction details. To split the transaction between two or more accounts, see To split a bank transaction between two or more MYOB Essentials accounts.
  3. In the Allocate or Match column for your chosen bank transaction, select the LiveAccounts account you want to allocate the bank transaction amount to.
    If you know the account name, you can type it directly over the Allocate me text in the field. As you type, LiveAccounts updates the drop-down list to show only those account names that include the text you’ve typed.
    Or, you can select the account from the drop-down list, which displays all your LiveAccounts expense accounts or income accounts (depending on the type of transaction). If you want to:
    • view all of your MYOB Essentials accounts, click More… from the list.
    • create a new MYOB Essentials account to allocate the bank transaction amount to, select Add new from the list. In the Create Account window that appears, enter the account details and click Save.

    The bank transaction status (in the Allocate or Match column) is updated.
