Adding a Payroll Company

MYOB Exo Payroll can have unlimited "live" payrolls in the same program, in addition to the Demonstration Company.

After opening Exo Payroll, the first thing you see is the MYOB Login Screen.

Adding a payroll company

To add a company, click the Add button or press F4. The following window appears:

Company Name Enter the name for the new company. This is the name that will appear in the list of payrolls. You may want to add "Wages" or "Salaries" or the name, to show who the new payroll is for.

Directory The default directory name is automatically generated, based on the first few characters of the company name you enter.

Copy information from an existing company This option allows you to copy the basic setup data from another company. This is useful where you have split the Wages and Salaries payrolls into two payrolls, both of which follow similar payroll practices. Tick the box and select the closest matching company from the Copy Information From list. If in doubt, choose the Demonstration Company. You will then be able to specify which areas of the other payroll you want to copy by ticking the appropriate boxes below.

Once the procedure is complete, click Save or press F10 and you will be taken to your new company.

Once in the new company you will be presented with the Payroll Setup Cycle window. This window steps you through the process of configuring the various essential settings.

Deleting a payroll company

If you want to delete a company for any reason, select the company on the Login Screen and click Delete or press F6. You are then asked to confirm that you want to delete this company. Click No to cancel, or click Yes to proceed. You must enter the administrator password for the company, then take a backup of the company before it is deleted.
