2021.1.4 Release Notes

Installing this release

The 2021.1.4 release is automatically deployed to all production accounts.

New Features

Advanced People name change

MYOB Advanced People has been renamed to MYOB Advanced Payroll.

Autosaving standard pay item changes

On the Pay Details screen (MPPP2310), if you make changes on the Pay Group tab that affect standard pay items, your changes are automatically applied to the relevant information on the Standard Pay tab. This autosave feature replaces the warning that would remind you to manually apply your changes.

New API endpoints

We've added new API endpoints for:

  • timesheets
  • data maps
  • entitlements
  • posting classes
  • General Ledger purposes
  • pay item liabilities
  • pay items
  • pay details
  • organisation employee (employee and employee class).

Field-level logging for Advanced Payroll

Field-level logging is now enabled for Advanced Payroll.

Payroll expense allocation update

On the Payroll Preferences screen (MPPP1100), you must enter the default account and subaccount values if the following conditions are met:

  • The allocation method is Time.
  • The Expense Account Source field is set to Project or Project Task.
  • The Expense Subaccount Source field is set to Project or Project Task.
  • Project/project task in an imported timesheet is not defined in the system.

New Zealand – Holiday Acts (2003) update

MYOB Advanced now handles additional scenarios to make sure the following are correct and compliant:

  • AWE, OWP and ADP rates calculations.
  • Annual Leave Year-To-Date calculations for termination payments.

For example, this includes additional pays, overlapping pays and adjusted pays.

New Zealand – Payday filing changes update

Pay details screen

On the Taxation tab for a new or existing employee with a tax code of WT or ND, the IRD Number field can be left blank. For all other tax code, the IRD Number field is mandatory and must be completed.

ED return (MPPP5025) batch file
  • The ED batch file reports a new employee's tax code and IRD number as saved in in their pay details (including blank values). This is a one-time entry.
  • For an existing employee, the ED batch file doesn't report their tax code changing from WT to another code. It also doesn't report their IRD number changing if their tax code is WT.
  • For an existing employee, the ED batch file reports a change in their tax code from ND to another code as two separate entries. The first entry is for the previous tax code (ND) with an end date entered in the IRD ND End Date field on Pay Details screen. The second entry is for the new tax code with a start date.
  • The IRD ND End Date field on the Pay Details screen should only be updated when user changes tax code from ND to another code, otherwise the following warning appears: “Only required when the tax code is supplied for an employee that was previously set to ND (no notification).”
EI return (MPPP5024) file

In the EI file, report employees' new or updated tax codes, as displayed in their current pay.

Further, employees with the WT tax code can't have Kiwisaver pay items. When processing pay runs, if a pay group has an employee with the WT tax code, a warning appears: "For WT Tax Code, Kiwisaver pay items are not supported." The pay run still processes successfully, even if Kiwisaver pay items were added.

New Zealand – Employee Details Return screen update

On the Employee Details Return screen (MPPP5024), when exporting to a CSV file, an error now occurs if phone number number fields (like Mobile phone orDaytime phone number) contain non-numeric values or contain gaps.

New Zealand – Employment info return (EI) for IRD

The Employment Info Return (EI) screen (MPPP5024) now automatically refreshes to display the most recently updated IRD numbers and tax codes.
