MYOB AccountRight Add-On

Export your timesheet data in one easy file for direct import into MYOB AccountRight

Integration format: TXT file

The MYOB AccountRight add-on allows you to easily process payroll by exporting a file with employee hours as set up in your Ento employment contracts for easy import into MYOB.
Please note: This is for the offline ‘AccountRight’ version of MYOB. The cloud-based ‘MYOB AccountRight Live’ uses a different API-based add-on.
This add-on is not compatible with MYOB for Mac, and may not be compatible with older versions of MYOB AccountRight. To check if the add-on will work with your version, please get in touch with Ento Support.

Initial setup

The MYOB AccountRight integration can be added to your account by navigating to Add-Ons > MYOB AccountRight.
Export options are set within the add-on edit screen:

Name: The name of the integration that will appear in your list of export options when exporting pay cycle data.
Job field: Sends through one of a few system options, or a custom employee field, as the job field required by MYOB.
Please note: MYOB AccountRight can only import a single week of data at once. Even if you run a fortnightly paycycle in MYOB, set up a weekly paycycle in Ento and import the weeks individually, to then be paid fortnightly.

Configuring Ento to communicate with MYOB AccountRight

To ensure that the export file created by Ento can be imported and read by your MYOB AccountRight system successfully and without errors, you’ll need to ensure that:

  • All employee IDs in Ento all match those of your MYOB setup
  • Each earning rate in your Ento employment contracts have a earning rate ID that matches a corresponding pay element in MYOB
  • Each leave type in Ento has an ID that matches a corresponding pay element in MYOB

This should all be set up during your Ento implementation, so for any future changes or additions, it’s advised to chat to Ento Support for assistance.

Exporting timesheets as part of a pay run

Once you’re ready to send timesheet data to MYOB, simply navigate to Payroll & Leave > Pay cycles and click ‘Export’ next to the pay cycle in question.
Choose the MYOB AccountRight export type and it’ll display information relating to the processing of data, before allowing you to download the file that you can use for importing.

Help using MYOB AccountRight

For assistance with your MYOB AccountRight system, including importing timesheet files, please contact the MYOB support team or your MYOB account manager.
