The new AccountRight is built from the ground up to give you the time saving, cashflow and collaboration benefits of online accounting, but with the flexibility to work online or offline. You also get to be compliant with tax changes, such as Single Touch Payroll, as well as get regular updates giving you new and updated features. 

Are you:

Upgrading is pretty easy. Once you've downloaded the new version, you find your company file and send it to us–we'll do the rest to upgrade your file. Watch this video:

 

 

 

If you're moving from AccountRight v19 (or earler) to AccountRight 2018, 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.

Upgrade AccountRight

 

Download and install AccountRight
  1. Download the latest version (AccountRight subscription required). If you don't have an AccountRight subscription for an online company file, visit our MYOB website (Australia | New Zealand) to purchase one.
     
  2. Click the installer file you've saved to your computer to install the new AccountRight version. For more information about installing AccountRight, see Install AccountRight.
Send your file to us to upgrade

MYOB can take the hassle out of upgrading—you can send your file to us and we'll put it online for you and let you know when it's ready to use. 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. 

If you don't have an internet connection, or a subscription for an online file, you can upgrade the file without putting it online—but this does mean you won't have access to key features.

  1. Start AccountRight (look for the new AR shortcut icon on your desktop or in the Start menu). The Welcome  window appears.

  2. Click Upgrade a company file. The Upgrade Assistant appears.
  3. 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. Still having trouble? Get help finding your company file.
  4. If the file you're upgrading is password-protected, type in the password and click Continue.
  5. Sign in to AccountRight with your MYOB account details and then click Upload.
  6. Once your file has uploaded, you can close AccountRight while we do the rest. 
  7. We'll email you when the upgrade's complete, or if we come across any issues along the way.
Complete post-upgrade tasks

After you get your upgraded file back, there may be a few more things you need to do (depending on the features you want to use). Don’t stress though, you only need to do them once. 

And if you need any help along the way, feel free to contact us.

We're working on it

Some features require an AccountRight subscription, and some features are only available if your file’s online. To learn what AccountRight can do for your business, download a trial, or to subscribe, visit the MYOB website (Australia | New Zealand). 

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).

Check our list of things you should know before upgrading, and complete any tasks that apply to you. 

How many company files can be put online?

An AccountRight subscription enables AccountRight Basics, Standard and Plus users to put 1 file online. AccountRight Premier subscribers can move two files online. You can purchase more files to move online if you wish, see 

You can also upgrade additional files without putting them online–but you won't have access to online services for those files.  

If you were using the following Classic AccountRight features, you're not able to upgrade just yet because these features aren't yet available in the new AccountRight:

  1. M-Powered Payments
  2. multi-currency, negative inventory or multi-location stock tracking
  3. add-ons that require ODBC. Are your add-ons compatible?

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. If you use ODBC add-ons, we recommend you contact the add-on provider to check if the add-on can work with the new AccountRight. 

Can't upgrade and need to be compliant for Single Touch Payroll (STP)? Don't worry, we've got your back. We've worked with the ATO and you've been granted a deferral from STP reporting until 31/5/2019. We'll build out the features you need to move in the meantime, such as multiple currency. More details about this deferral will be provided soon. See Single Touch Payroll.
