Tanda can import staff data from a recent pay history in MYOB (New Zealand edition).


To generate this report, go to Reports > Period Reports > Export Pay History. Save the file somewhere on your computer where you can find it easily again shortly. The report will be generated in .csv format.

Importing into Tanda

In Tanda, go to Workforce > Staff:

On the right, click on + Add Staff:

In the pop-up window select Import from > select MYOB AccountRight Desktop.

At the top you'll notice a prompt for MYOB payroll in New Zealand, click on the click here button to go to the particular download instructions for this system:

Follow the prompts to upload the file you exported from MYOB:

You’ll then be redirected back to Tanda, where you’ll see a progress indicator and once your staff have been imported you’ll see the list of them.

Exporting from Tanda

Once you have approved all your timesheets and configured Tanda for your payroll, you can now export the timesheets to Xero.

In Timesheets > Weekly > click the Export to Payroll link:

You will be taken to the Timesheet Export Preview page. If there are any errors in your timesheets, this will be flagged so you can fix it in order to export the timesheet.

When you are ready to export click Export to Payroll Software:

When you click the button, a .csv file will be downloaded to your computer. You’ll be able to open this file in Excel if you need to take a look at it.

Importing into MYOB

In MYOB, click the Import Timesheets button on the Prepare Pays command centre. Select the file you downloaded from Tanda, and click Import. Staff from Tanda will be matched to MYOB based on their employee code, which is the second column in the CSV, and the employee number in Tanda. So it’s important that these match.

Once the data has been imported, you can continue your pay run in MYOB.
