Using MYOB Essentials with Payroll?

If you’re using payroll functionality, there’s a few things you should consider checking beforehand (such as finishing any saved pay runs).

If you currently use MYOB’s Super Portal, we recommend you familiarise yourself with the new way you’ll pay super after the upgrade is complete.

If you use YourPay to track timesheets, check that your employees have completed and saved any timesheets. Consider setting up MYOB Team to continue managing timesheet hours and payslips after your upgrade.

Check users (for Practices only)​

When a file is upgraded, all current users will be migrated; this means any users who have been invited to the file.​

Therefore, we encourage you to review your contacts and clean up any old users that haven’t been removed.​
