For the AccountRight 2019.3 release, we've added functions to some of our most popular features, including: 

  • Multi-currency changes–– Send statements to your overseas customers, enter item prices in foreign currencies and easily access the currency calculator when changing rates in transactions.
  • Bank feed rule enhancements–– Take transaction coding to the next level by creating bank feed rules that match transactions by a dollar amount. And for Australian businesses, bank feed rules can now be set up to mark taxable payments as reportable.
  • In Tray enhancements–– Create a spend money transaction by uploading a document to the In Tray, saving you time on tedious data entry.

Plus bug fixes and a set of small but helpful improvements.


[Premier only] Multi-currency enhancements 

Send statements to your overseas customers 

When sending statements to your overseas customers the amounts will now display in your customers currency. You can also add a currency code to your personalised statement to display the currency on your statement. 





Item prices entered in foreign currency value

Item prices can now be entered in the foreign value. We’ve made this change to reflect how AccountRight v19 handled items and multi-currency.



Easily access the currency calculator when changing transaction rates

If you need to manually calculate the exchange rate, you can now easily access the currency calculator when changing the rate on a transaction.



Smarter bank feed rules

Create rules for a dollar amount

You make the rules and AccountRight plays by them. You can now set up bank feed rules for specific amounts. So, if you have regular amounts going through your bank account each month, set up bank feed rules for those amounts. AccountRight will then identify them and take care of the rest.



Create rules for reportable contractor payments (Australia only)

Marking taxable payments as reportable has always been a manual process…until now. Say hello to a new bank feed rule option which does it for you.

Create a spend money transaction from an In Tray document

You can now create a spend money transaction by uploading a document, such as a receipt, to the In Tray. This enables you to save time on manual data entry. AccountRight uses some smarts to read and automatically fill in as many of the fields on the transaction as possible.


All you need to do is check the details that have been automatically entered and enter any additional details that are needed.


If you use In Tray to create spend money transactions, you'll also:

  • know that expense documents are stored securely online and easy to access
  • have a proof of purchase for transactions, which is important for compliance.

You can add documents and use them to create spend money transactions or link them to existing ones - just go to the Banking command centre, click In Tray and choose an option.


With your documents securely stored in AccountRight, you can then move the emailed originals to that special folder – trash!
