AccountRight Plus and Premier, Australia only

The Pay Slip Delivery field in an employee's card determines if their pay slips will be emailed, printed or both (but this can be changed during the pay run, if you like).

You can print or email pay slips when processing your payroll, or at any time afterwards. We cover both scenarios below.

Before you start, make sure AccountRight is set up to send emails. Also, if you want to change the appearance of your pay slips, see Personalising pay slips.

To print or email pay slips when processing your payroll

  1. Complete the first 3 steps of the Process Payroll Assistant (Payroll command centre > Process Payroll). Need a process payroll refresher?
  2. At the Pay Slips step of the Assistant, click Print or Email Pay Slips.

  1. Go to the Payroll command centre and click Print/Email Pay Slips.
  2. Click the To Be Printed or To Be Emailed tab (depending on what you want to do).

If no records appear in the Review Pay Slips Before Delivery window, check the default pay slip delivery method in the employee card.

  1. Go to the Card File command centre and click Cards List > Employee tab > click the zoom arrow next to the employee card you want.
  2. Click the Payroll Details tab and then Pay Slip Delivery:

Employee card default payslip delivery method

If it's set to Already Printed or Sent, change it to the delivery method you want. Repeat this for employee you want to print or email pay slips for. When you re-open or refresh the Review Pay Slips Before Delivery window, the records should appear.

Note that you can also set the pay slip delivery status when you process payroll, in the Pay Employee window:

Pay Employee window Pay Slip Delivery Status

This overrides the default pay slip delivery method in the employee card for that pay run only.

How do I select the email address pay slips will be sent from?

If you're emailing via Microsoft Outlook, emails from AccountRight will be sent from the default email address selected in Outlook. To change this email address, see Sending emails using Microsoft Outlook.

If you're emailing directly from AccountRight:

  • Emails are delivered on your behalf using MYOB’s email server so will appear from @apps.myob.com.
  • These emails are digitally signed using a Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) signature and the domain is protected by the Sender Policy Framework (SPF).
  • These measures reduce the risk of phishing, and emails sent from AccountRight are less likely to be considered spam by your recipient’s email service. Some email services won’t accept messages that are sent on behalf of someone else. For example, emails that have an @yahoo.com From address, but are delivered using another email provider’s mail server could be marked as spam or be blocked by the recipient’s email provider.
  • You can set the reply-to email address in the email preferences (Setup menu > Preferences > Emailing tab > Reply-to Email Address).

Why am I getting the message "error sending email"?

If you're getting the message "Error sending email", make sure you're using the latest version of AccountRight. An issue was found in an earlier version and fixed in 2015.2.

If the error persists, go to Setup > Preferences > Reports & Forms tab and deselect the option to Include all YTD amounts and Entitlement Balances on Paycheques Stubs. You can also try to process a "dummy" pay for the employee, then display the pay transaction via the transaction journal and then delete (or Reverse) it. Now try emailing the pay slip which was causing the error.

Which email programs can I use to send emails?

If you send emails directly from AccountRight you won't need a separate email program. Otherwise you'll need to use Microsoft Outlook 2010 (32-bit) or later. If you usually send emails via a web email service, such as Gmail, you can most likely access and send emails from Microsoft Outlook via IMAP or POP.

You'll need to refer to your email provider's instructions on how to access and send emails from Outlook, but here's some information that might help you out:

How do I delete a pay slip?

If you need to...do this...
Remove a pay slip which is waiting to be printed or emailed

Open the associated pay and change the Delivery Status to Already Printed or Sent.

Delete an employee's pay and associated pay slip

Delete the pay (open the pay, go to the Edit menu and choose Delete Transaction). This will delete the pay and associated pay slip.

For more details, see Changing a recorded pay.
