While AccountRight installs, you’ll enter some basic information about your business, like your contact details, and when installation is complete, you’ll have a company file ready for you to use.
If you can’t find the installer file, see the email MYOB sent you after purchasing AccountRight. The email has a link to the installer and more details on how to install AccountRight.
Bought from a retail store?
If you purchased a point-of-sale activation (POSA) card from a retail store, you need to redeem your redemption code online and register your business details. This also registers you as the owner of your AccountRight software.
