Are you able to upgrade?
If you use the following Classic AccountRight features, you might not be able to upgrade from AccountRight Classic Check the following features
Take note if you use these features in your Classic AccountRight (v19 or earlier) just yet because these features aren't available in the new AccountRight:
multi-currency (we're working on this now - learn more about the multi-currency beta program)
negative inventory or multi-location stock trackingadd
Negative inventory - inventory items can't have a negative quantity or value in the new AccounRight. But if you adjust your inventory quantities and values to zero or greater (in each location, if you use multiple inventory locations), you can turn off negative inventory in AccountRight v19 and it won't prevent you from upgrading.
Add-ons that require ODBC. Are your add-ons compatible? Check here, the add-on centre (Australia | New Zealand) or contact the add-on provider to check if the add-on can work with the new AccountRight.
MYOB is working on building out features like multi-currency in the new AccountRight. We'll let you know when they're available so you can move.
