In the Payroll Options > Accounting tab, select the default payroll liability account to which you want to post your payroll journals. If MYOB Payroll locates a valid chart of accounts, a drop‐down list will be available. Select an account, for example, Wages Liability, from the chart of accounts displayed in the drop‐down list for the default payroll liabilities account.
If you have set up specific liability accounts for taxes, deductions or payments in the Maintain Pay Codes window, these will override the default liability code set here.
If you want the journals to have individual lines for each employee, select the Create separate journals for each employee option.
If you want to use your MYOB Payroll cost centres as job codes in the AccountRight journals, select the Include cost centres as job codes in journals option.
Select the Automatically post journals into the company file option.
If you want to select account codes for each department or cost centre, go to the Maintenance command centre and click Maintain Departments.
If you want to select account codes for your pay codes, click Maintain Pay Codes in the Maintenance command centre. You can select a General Ledger code in the Other tab for each Deduction, Tax or Payment code.
When a pay is finalised, MYOB Payroll automatically creates and posts a journal file, formatted for the relevant integration settings.
The journals contain debit entries for the gross wages costs allocated to each department for the pay (gross earnings, taxable allowances and non‐taxable allowances) and a credit entry for the total wages cost for that pay.
