This support note applies to:

  • AE Practice Manager (NZ)

Article ID: 31320

In MYOB Practice Manager (MYOB PM) there is no option to automatically charge interest on overdue debtor balances. 

Interest can be charged by entering a miscellaneous charge with a zero tax rate.

For details refer to Entering a miscellaneous charge in Practice Manager.

To set up a new Miscellaneous Charge Task Code with a zero tax rate
    1. In MYOB PM, follow the menu path Maintenance > Maintenance Map > Miscellaneous > Code Types. The Code Types screen appears.
    2. Click the [+] for Misc Charge. The list of codes for the code type appears.
    3. In the new record row, complete the fields:
      • Code
      • Short Name
      • Description
      • Unit
      • Markup
      • Tax Rate 
      • CRM Type/Availability

      For the Code, Short Name or Description you could call this INTEREST.

      Ensure you select the relevant tax rate for example, GST Free Supplies (0.00%) at the Tax Rate field.

    4. Click OK. The Task Code is created.

    For AE sites, if no nominal code defaults are set up, you will need to manually add a nominal account under the Nominal column for this new miscellaneous code type under Maintenance > Ledger Maintenance > Nominal Codes > Data Entry Codes Available for Company tab. 

    Once this is complete, you should then set up your default nominal codes from Maintenance > Ledger Maintenance > Nominal Codes > Nominal Code Defaults tab, so you do not have to manually apply a nominal code to a new task code again, as the system will then apply a default nominal when the new code is created.

    For more details on creating new task codes and nominal code defaults, refer to Creating a new task code for timesheet/disbursement data entry.
