Hi, you really should check with your accountant how to set up the relevant settings in MYOB. There’s also some good info on the MYOB help site area.

For me, mine is set up in Capital Assets, and the accountant depreciates with other assets at the end of the year.
Assets/Fixed Assets/Motor Vehicles/Motor Vehicles at cost

If you claim GST and you have purchased outright then you can claim the percentage of GST paid immediately on your next BAS.

Then for other expenses to do with the car …
My car expenses are 80% business, so every entry for petrol, insurance etc is divided into 80% business and 20% private. I set is up as a Purchase with 2 lines – the business and private portions, and allocate the relevant amounts each time. I save it as a recurring transaction so I only have to change the amounts.
