Importing employees

You can import employees into MYOB instead of setting them up one at a time. This is handy if you have a list of employees you've exported from another program or if they're saved in a spreadsheet.

Your plan may limit the number of employees you can pay each month. Learn about payroll limits and fees.

For the easiest import, we recommend using a sample file. It works like a template and ensures the required information is entered in a format that's accepted by MYOB. We've provided a sample file below which contains all available fields needed for importing employees. All you need to do is download the file, open it in a spreadsheet program like Excel, add your employee information, then import it into MYOB.
