Include employee timesheets in a pay run

AccountRight Plus and Premier only     

If you record employee hours on timesheets, the Pay Period step of the Process Payroll Assistant (Payroll command centre > Process Payroll) lists employee timesheets for the specified pay period. If you've set up MYOB Team, approved timesheets will be available to include in your employees' pays.

Note that this option is only available if you have selected the timesheets preference.

Initially, all timesheets are selected to be included in the pay period.

Why are my timesheet hours not included when processing payroll?


If your timesheet hours are not appearing when you process payroll this can be caused by the following.

  • The pay period dates when processing payroll don't match the timesheet dates.

  • Part or all of the timesheet has been included in a previous pay run. To check this open the current timesheet and check if any of the days are uneditable (greyed out).

Why are more hours showing on my pays than are on my timesheet?


Most likely this is due to hours being entered in the employee's standard pay. The quantity of hours shown on a pay take into account hours entered in the timesheet as well as hours entered in the standard pay.

If you only want to use timesheets to enter the hours an employee worked, zero out any hours from the standard pay in their employee card.
