Viewing pay history for the current year

You can view an employee’s pay history on the Pay history tab of their employee record (Payroll menu > Employees > click to open the employee > Payroll details tab > Pay history). This tab shows pay history for all of the employee’s pay items for a month, a quarter or year-to-date.

If you've started using MYOB part way through the payroll year, you can enter your employees' payroll history as a record of the amounts you've paid them this year.

Don't tamper with history

If you've made a mistake in a pay, don't try to fix it by changing an employee's pay history. Instead, fix it by adjusting the employee's next pay. See Fixing a pay and Managing your employees’ leave for all the details.

Changing the pay history in an employee's contact record will cause a few headaches, including:

  • it won't fix an incorrect pay

  • the amounts won't be posted to your payroll accounts

  • payroll calculations, such as superannuation, will be affected

  • the change will only be reflected on the Payroll register report, not the Payroll activity report (this report is based on what's been entered into the pays you're processed in MYOB). So if your payroll register and payroll activity reports don't match, it usually means an employee's pay history has been changed.
