Let's start

  3. Click Yes. The Terms of Use display.

  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 Portal. 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 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.
