Our advanced MYOB AccountRight live integration

  • Employee base rates sent to MYOB.
  • Employee wage categories are checked and enabled automatically if required on employee CARDS in MYOB.
  • Wage category multipliers or hourly rates are updated as required.
  • Employee 'Base Hourly' or default code standard pay is forced to 0.

 

Run export checks

As part of the MYOB AccountRight Version 2 integration we have built a run export checks function that can be accessed on the payroll report at any time - allowing the integration to be checked ahead of the pay run:

2) How the MYOB live integration works

Both Easy Employer and MYOB act as "master databases" for certain information. The connection is done through the internet (API).

MYOB

  • Is the master database for employee details (e.g. address, mobile number, bank details, super details).
  • If there is a change to user details (e.g. email, mobile, address, bank details) this needs to be updated in MYOB then imported back into Easy Employer by following the process below "Updating user details".
  • Is the master database for entitlement accruals and balances.
  • When a new user starts, you can add them to MYOB and import them into Easy Employer. Or add them into each system separately then import and link them via the import/update users process.

Easy Employer

  • Is the master database for user’s pay rates (this is why it is very important the rates in Easy Employer are correct).
  • When exporting a pay run, if a difference in rates exists the system will flag this and prompt users to update MYOB. This greatly helps the process when there is a yearly increase.
  • If a user’s rate needs updating, update Easy Employer by following the guide here.
  • If award rates need updating, update Easy Employer by following the guide here.

 

3) New user(s)

When a new employee starts, the employee needs to be added to MYOB and imported into Easy Employer, or added into both systems manually and linked via the import/update users process.

 

MYOB into Easy Employer (recommended process)

  1. Capture the employee details using your standard process (e.g. new employee form).
  2. Add them into MYOB:
    • Add in all relevant information including email and mobile (phone no. 2).
  3. Perform an import to add them into Easy Employer (guide located here).
  4. Complete their profile in MYOB (e.g. bank details, super details, tax scales).
  5. Update their profile in Easy Employer:
    • Update their details/settings located in the details tab in their profile page (e.g. emergency contact, communication preferences).
    • Assign to roles.
    • Assign to pay conditions.
    • Grant online access.

 

MYOB and Easy Employer separately

  1. Add the employee into Easy Employer and MYOB separately.
  2. Perform an import/update users to link the employee profile (guide located here).

 

4) Updating user details

MYOB is the master database for user details. The user's details need to be updated in MYOB and imported into Easy Employer.

  1. Update the employee details in MYOB.
  2. Import the employees into Easy Employer (guide located here).

 

5) Updating leave entitlement balances

MYOB is the master database for all leave entitlement balances.  These balances should be updated in Easy Employer regularly and it is recommended to do this after each pay run:

6) MYOB important fields

Employee cards

  • Mobile phone: The mobile phone number needs to be stored in MYOB against "Phone No. 2".
  • Email: The email address employees want to receive Easy Employer communications from. For example, managers would set this as their work email.
  • Payslip email: The email to employees who want their payslips sent. This can be different to the email above.

Inactive cards

  • Employee cards in MYOB should not be made inactive until the employee no longer exists within a pay period in Easy Employer.

 

7) New wage categories

  • Any new wage categories need to be manually added to MYOB.

  • User known as name.
  • Pin code (set by the user when online sign up completed).
  • Location (GPS coordinates on map).
  • City.
