Using AcountRight v19? Your help is here.

Are you replacing your computer, or want to use AccountRight on more than one computer? The steps to get you up and running depend on whether your company file is online or offline (that is, stored locally on your desktop or server). Follow the instructions relevant to you.

Before you start, check that your computer meets the system requirements for running AccountRight.

Using AccountRight online (subscription required)

  1. Get the latest AccountRight installer.
  2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the prompts to install AccountRight.
  3. If you use personalised letters, have customised Microsoft Excel templates or use BASlink (Australia only), you also need to copy these files onto the new computer. See below for the location of your personalised files.
    Note that all other files, such as customised invoices and payslips are stored in your online company file and don't need to be copied.
