If you import a bank transaction that you haven’t entered into MYOB Essentials, you can allocate it directly to one or more of your MYOB Essentials accounts without manually recording a transaction.
If you need to, you can split the transaction between more than one account.
If you've already entered a corresponding transaction in MYOB Essentials, you should match the transaction instead. See Matching bank transactions.
Allocate a transaction to a single account
If a transaction on the bank feed hasn’t been entered in MYOB Essentials, you can allocate it to your MYOB Essentials accounts.
To allocate to a single account, just click in the Allocate or Match column on the right half of the screen and choose which account you want to allocate the transaction to.
Going to allocate many transactions to the same account? Auto-allocate the next transaction based on the previous transaction's allocation by pressing the + key from a keypad, or Shift and + from a keyboard. For example, if you allocate a transaction to your Sales Account, and the next three unallocated transactions will also go to your Sales Account, pressing + or Shift + three times will do the work for you!
Allocate to more than one account
To allocate a transaction to more than one account, click the down arrow to expand the transaction. On the Allocate tab, choose the accounts you want to allocate the transaction to, and enter the amount to allocate to each account.
When you’re done, click Save. The allocation account is shown in the list, next to the transaction details. If you chose multiple accounts, this will appear as Split across accounts.
If you need to allocate a $0 transaction this will not save if we simply allocate an account.
You will need to click on the arrow to the right of the transaction. This will allow us to type in 100% in the Amount in $ or % field. Fill in the Account, Tax code and enter a Description and you will then be able to Save.
