If you're moving from AccountRight v19 (or earler) to AccountRight 2017, this information is for you. If you're updating AccountRight 2011 or later, check out 'Getting the latest version' instead. To check your current AccountRight version, go to the Help menu and choose About AccountRight.
With the new AccountRight, you can choose to connect your bank, put your file in the cloud, hook up your data to a range of powerful add-ons, and take payments online. And that's just the beginning.
Take a look at our What's new for v19 users help page.
What does it cost to upgrade? If you have an AccountRight subscription, you're entitled to upgrade to the latest version. For pricing and other subscription info, visit the MYOB website (Australia | New Zealand).

Before you begin
Check our list of things you should know before upgrading, and complete any tasks that apply to you.
If you were using the following Classic AccountRight features, you might not be able to upgrade just yet because these features aren't available in the new AccountRight:
- M-Powered Payments
- multi-currency, negative inventory or multi-location stock tracking
- add-ons that require ODBC. Are your add-ons compatible?
Ready, set... download!
Before upgrading your company file, you'll need to download and install the latest AccountRight version (AccountRight subscription required). If you don't have an AccountRight subscription, your company file will become read-only after 30 days.
Once you've saved the installer to your computer, double-click it to install the new AccountRight version.
Let's do it
Now you can upgrade your file. We'll even put it online for you at the same time. Or you can upgrade the file without putting it online .
Upgrades usually take a couple of hours (depending on your company file size), and you can't make changes to your file during this time, so you should do it outside of business hours.
- Start AccountRight (look for the new AR shortcut icon on your desktop or in the Start menu).
- When the Welcome window appears, click Upgrade a company file .
Click Continue and then click Browse to locate and select the file you want to upgrade.
Can't find your file? Try looking in your AccountRight v19 installation folder, like c:\Plus19 or c:\PremierClassic. Look for a file with a .myo or .prm extension. If you can only find a .MYOX file, it means it's already upgraded. Learn how to open a company file.

If the file you're upgrading is password-protected, type in the password and click Continue.
- Sign in to AccountRight Live with your MYOB account details and then click Upload.
Once your file has uploaded, you can close AccountRight while we do the rest.
- We'll email you when the upgrade's complete, or if we come across any issues along the way.
