explore the higher product before you purchase it

Your software is now able to open company files for any product in the AccountRight rangeIf you've upgraded from a lower AccountRight product to a higher AccountRight product, some command centres might not show. For example, you can open a sample company file of AccountRight Plus, even if you only have a licence for AccountRight Standard.

The advantage of this is that you can:

  • easily upgrade your company file to be used with a higher product, without performing a separate product installation (charges apply)
  • if you've upgraded to AccountRight Plus or Premier (Australia only) and you’ve never used payroll features before, the Payroll command centre won’t appear. Similarly, if you've upgraded from AccountRight Basics to AccountRight Standard, the Purchases and Inventory command centres won't appear.

    Try before you buy

    AccountRight lets you try any product in the AccountRight range by using the sample company file (Clearwater). This means if you only have a license for AccountRight Basics or Standard, you can take a look at the features and functions in a higher product, like AccountRight Plus or Premier.

    To change your AccountRight product

    Although you can explore any product level with your software, you can only upgrade files to a higher product level (for example, from AccountRight Basics to AccountRight Standard, AccountRight Plus, or AccountRight

    Standard to AccountRight

    Premier).

    To explore a different product

    If you want, you can explore the features of another product using the library of sample company files.

    • Start your AccountRight software and, in the welcome window that appears, click Explore a sample company. In the Library Browser window, open the Samples folder to display a list of sample company files for different AccountRight products. Choose the file that matches the product you want and click Open.

    Here's how:

    1.  Open your company file.
    2. Go to the Help menu and choose Change Product.
    3. Select the product you’re changing to.

    Downgrading not available

    Once an AccountRight v19 company file has been upgraded to the new AccountRight, it can't be downgraded. Pre-upgraded company files can still be opened in AccountRight v19.
