Configuring MYOB

Before exporting, you just need to ensure you have the following setup in MYOB:


Timesheets turned on:

  • Under Setup, click on Preferences and then under the System tab (first one by default), ensure you have ticked I Use Timesheets for Payroll and my Week Starts on a….:


Removed Standard Pay (not for Salaried):

Some businesses use Standard Pay hours to make processing pay quicker. As we’re sending timesheet hours from Tanda, if you have Standard Pay hours as well, you’ll be doubling up. You’ll want to remove this for all Full Time, Part Time and Casual Staff:

  • To remove Standard Pay in MYOB:

Go to Card File, Cards List and Employee. Select a staff member and then go to their Payroll Details tab. Click on Standard Pay and in the table, where you see Base Hourly and in the next column for Hours, you might see 38 or 76 hours. Double click the number and Delete and then click Ok.

Repeat this for all your Full Time, Part Time and Casual Staff.

In 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:

If your MYOB Live connection with Tanda has been disconnected, you may be taken to the login screen to MYOB.

This is a two step process. First, log in to your MYOB account. Then, choose your MYOB business name and enter the login details for your company file. Leave the password field blank if you do not have a password for your company file.

You will then see a thinking bar showing that the timesheet is being sent to MYOB. Depending on how many timesheets you are sending, this can take a minute or so.

Once it has completed you will be taken to the following screen:

You can now go to MYOB and begin processing your payroll by going to Payroll > Process Payroll: 

If you encounter any errors or timesheets that don't export, check the MYOB ARL Timesheet Errors Troubleshooting article.
