    titleLet's startFirst-time setup


    1. Open your MYOB AE or MYOB AO software on your desktop. 

    2. Click

      Image Removed

      Image Added on the toolbar. A message displays letting you know that it may take some time to set up your online data.

    3. Click Yes. The Terms of Use display.

    4. Carefully read through the terms and conditions and then select the I agree with the above terms of use checkbox.

    5. Click OK.
      Once your online data has been set up, you'll be directed to MYOB


      Practice. A Welcome to AO/AE Live screen displays.

    6. Enter your practice name.
      By default, this is your company name as entered in MYOB AE or MYOB AO on your desktop. You would have set this up in Maintenance > Internal > Companies > Company Name. The first name in the list on the Maintenance - Companies page is used. If you would like to use a different practice name, simply edit the existing text.

    7. Click Finish.

      You'll now have access to MYOB


      Practice. You'll be logged in as the same user you were logged into MYOB AE or MYOB AO - your desktop version.

    Access after the first time

    After the first time, you'll be able to access MYOB Portal, either:

    • directly from your browser using (if you have MYOB AE) or (if you have MYOB AO). Bookmark the page for easy access in the future.
    • clicking Image Removed on the toolbar of your desktop version of MYOB AE or MYOB AO.

    Once you've logged in, you'll automatically have access to the same database that you were using on your desktop.

    What do I do next?

  • The first thing you may want to do is view your clients.
  • Next, you can complete setting up your portal.
  • You may also want to consider enabling two-factor authentication for your account. Two-factor authentication is a feature that makes signing into your account more secure. It combines something you know (your password) with something you have (your phone). This makes it harder for people to log into your account using a stolen password.
    Want to learn more about 2FA? See The cheat's guide to two-factor authentication, or view the 2-factor authentication online help.
    For more information on whether or not 2FA is suitable for your practice, see Two-factor authentication for accountants.
