M-Powered Payments users

We're building a new service to replace M-Powered Payments that works with the new AccountRight – but it isn't ready yet.

This means that if you're using M-Powered Payments, you can continue using AccountRight v19 until 30 September 2019, by which time the replacement for M-Powered Payments will be available and you'll be able to upgrade.

However, if you're using M-Powered services and are not using any of the other features not available in the new AccountRight, you may choose to upgrade now and do without the ability to directly transmit payments to your employees and suppliers until the new feature is available.

In the meantime, you'll be able to pay your employees and suppliers electronically using the electronic payments feature.

You do this by setting up AccountRight to create an electronic file containing payment details which you can upload to your bank for processing (known as the ABA file). And, if you set up bank feeds, these payments will be automatically matched in AccountRight.

The choice is yours. If you're just using M-Powered Payments and not any other unavailable features, you can:

  • upgrade now and use alternative features, or
  • hold off from upgrading until the replacement for M-Powered Payments is available.
