I am new to Reckon and have taken over an existing accounts and payroll. One of the first things I've noticed is that my payroll expenses are all going to theone GL code rather than the separate GL codes for PAY W/H and SGC Liab. Basically all are processing as 2100 instead of PAYG to 2110 & SGC to 2130

have a look at the set up of the payroll item Super - you should be able to change the liability account to the one you want.

Thanks for the reply, I'm not even sure where to go to change the payroll item though. I have 18 years experience with the other small business software, self taught from a manual and know it well but unfortunately I'm finding it very hard to get around Reckon. Any further help would be appreciated, regards.

I usually find the Help function excellent. 
To check the Payroll item - go to Lists, then Payroll Item List.  Find the item that is is not going to the correct liability account (ie PAYG Withholding), then open it by double clicking.  Move through the screens until you get to the Agency for employee-paid liability screen and check it is the correct liability account.  Next open the payroll item for the super that is not posting where you want it and check the account on the Agency for company-paid liability screen.
