Known issue 08/07/2020

We're currently experiencing an issue affecting access to online company files and other online services. Our experts are working on this as a priority as we realise how important it is to fix as soon as possible.

 

When a company file is online, you can access it from any computer that has the latest version of AccountRight installed.

Once you sign in to AccountRight, you can access all the company files that you have uploaded or created online, or that you've been invited to access.

Because a company file contains highly sensitive business data, there's some security details you'll need to access it.

    Don't see the Internet Time tab?

    If your computer is on a domain-based network, the workstations will not have the Internet Time tab. This is because the workstations will automatically synchronise their time with the Domain Controller (Server) each time they start up. You may need to contact your IT specialist to confirm that your Domain Controller is correctly configured to synchronise with Internet Time.

  6. Click Change Settings.
  7. Select the option Synchronize with an internet time server.
  8. In the Server field, select time.windows.com.
  9. Click Update now.
    Your computer's time will be synchronised with an online time server.
  10. When complete, click OK to close all open windows.

You should now be able to open AccountRight and successfully sign in to AccountRight Live.

If the above steps didn't work, talk to your IT specialist, as only they will be able to diagnose the specific cause in your system of the date or time error.
