When Calxa imports accounts from MYOB it attempts to determine their type – some accounts are critical for properly calculating the cashflow forecast and if they are not identified correctly the import cannot continue.

 

Important Accounts


  • The main Bank account
  • Trade Debtors (this is the account nominated in Setup, Linked Accounts, Sales Accounts as the Asset Account for Tracking Receivable). The type of this account should be set to Accounts Receivable (setting it to Bank will cause the import to fail)
  • Trade Creditors (this is the account nominated in Setup, Linked Accounts, Purchases Accounts as the Liability Account for Tracking Payable. The type of this account should be set to Accounts Payable (setting it to Credit Card will cause the import to fail)
  • Retained Earnings (this is the account nominated in Setup, Linked Accounts, Accounts & Banking Accounts)
  • Current Earnings (this is the account nominated in Setup, Linked Accounts, Accounts & Banking Accounts)
  • GST Collected and GST Paid (these are the accounts nominated in the GST Tax Code)
  • Superannuation Expense (this is the account nominated in Setup, Linked Accounts, Payroll Accounts as the Default Employer Expense Account).
  • Wages Expense (this is the account nominated in Setup, Linked Accounts, Payroll Accounts as the Default Wages Expense Account).
  • PAYG Withholding (this is the account nominated in Setup, Linked Accounts, Payroll Accounts as the Default Tax/Deductions Payable Account).

 

Jobs and Categories


We recommend that jobs and categories have names as well as numbers. In some lists in Calxa, only the name is visible and not the number.

 

General Housekeeping


We recommend that you regularly optimise your MYOB file. This will enable the ODBC Driver to link to it and extract the data more efficiently.
