The entity name or business name (trading name) you selected when you first set up your MYOB Atlas website will appear in your website footer by default.

You can change the name that appears in your website footer if:

  • you have more than one business name registered to your ABN, and want to switch from one to another.
  • you have an entity name listed in your footer, but want to display your business name instead (or vice versa).

Example

If you're a sole trader that conducts business under your business name, you might want to display your business name in the footer, instead of your first and last name (entity name).
