Some older AccountRight versions refer to a redundant 24/7 automated confirmation phone line.

To confirm by phone, give us a call:

Australia - 1300 555 151 | Monday to Friday 7am to 8pm, Saturday to Sunday 9am to 5pm (Melbourne time)

New Zealand - 0800 606 962 | Monday to Friday 9am to 10pm, Saturday to Sunday 11am to 7pm (New Zealand time)

After a company file is activated, you'll need to confirm the file regularly to ensure you're using a licensed product. You'll also need to confirm your company file if you upgrade to the new AccountRight.

Receiving an error when confirming? See activation and confirmation errors for more detail.

When confirmation is due and you attempt to open an activated company file, the Company File Confirmation window appears. You can also display the assistant any time by going to the Help menu and choosing Confirm Company File .

These procedures show you how to confirm an activated company file and set up automatic confirmation:

Confirmation FAQs


I'm an accountant and I'm being prompted to confirm my client's company file - should I?

I'm an accountant and I'm being prompted to confirm my client's company file - should I?

Yes, this is fine. Providing the client's company file has been activated with their serial number, you can confirm it.

What happens if I don't confirm a company file within the required period?

What happens if I don't confirm a company file within the required period?

If you don’t confirm the file within the time period allowed, the company file will become read-only. This means you can still view your business information, print reports and export data, but you won't be able to enter new transactions or make changes to information. If you have multiple users accessing the file, they will also have read-only access.

If you want to continue entering transactions in the company file, you need to confirm the file.
