Account groups and Tax Account Groups

Statutory Reporter uses Account Groups to determine which account balances to display in each section of the financial statements and which notes to include by default. Tax account groups are used to transfer data from client accounting into the tax return.

Tax account groups

Tax Account Groups are used specifically for integration into Income Tax integration workpaper. In Tax account groups, you cannot add custom groups.

To access the Tax account group:

  1. Open the client and go to the Client Accounting tab
  2. On the Tasks bar on the left, select Tax Account Groups.

Import values from the Income Tax Integration workpaper templates (AU) in MYOB Workpapers for the following entity types:

  • Company
  • Partnership
  • Individual
  • Trust.

The import must be for the full financial year. Period dates in Workpapers must be the same as the financial year in AE or AO Tax.

To import balances from Workpapers to AE or AO Tax:

  1. Complete the Income Tax Integration workpaper.
  2. To ensure that the return has been rolled over from the prior year, if applicable, check that you have created an Income Tax Return for the financial year and that the status of the return is In Progress.
  3. Go to your client's Tax tab and, on the TASKS bar, click Import Ledger Data.
    The values are populated to the business schedule of the return.

See Exporting Ledger Data to Tax.

Account groups (statutory reporter)

Statutory Reporter uses Account Groups to determine which account balances to display in each section of the financial statements and which notes to include by default.

Account groups allow modification of the contents of a report without modifying the report definition itself. This means that the same Master Level Report Definitions can be used to generate reports for a variety of client charts.

For example, if the Balance Sheet > Assets and Liabilities > Assets > Current Assets > Cash and Cash equivalents account group contain any accounts with non-zero balances, these account balances will be included in the Current Assets section of the Balance Sheet, as well as the Cash and Cash Equivalents Note. In addition, the Cash and Cash Equivalents accounting policy note will be displayed in the Statement of Significant Accounting Policies.

This example is an AU system but can be used for NZ. NZ systems may have some differences.

Display account codes/range

Select to display accounts allocated to the account group by individual account codes or by an account range (e.g. 300:470 instead of 300, 301, 302, 303 ... 470).
LSeparating debits and credits

Opens the Range Settings window. In this window you can choose to separate account balances by Debits or Credits.

For example, all accounts in range 680:683 with a debit balance will display under Current Assets in the balance sheet. If any accounts in range 680:683 have a credit balance, the account will appear under Current liabilities in the Balance Sheet.
