Hello all,

 

I had, until this week, understood that the Multi-Currency functions in the Classic Premier version would be available in the 2014 Live version later this year.

It appears that this is now not the case, and may not even happen next year, or even longer.

 

I have a number of clients now using M-C in Premier v19.10 who want to move to the live version to obtain the benefits that they see available, but it now seems they will be stuck with the old version for quite some time.

All that they get for their almost $1200 pa subscription is updates of tax tables.

 

I urge all Premier M-C users and those with clients using M-C to vote to have this functionality returned without delay.

 

Cheers

David

Hi all, as most of you you may know by now, we've been building multi-currency for AccountRight Premier and expect to deliver it soon. The functionality is currently in beta, but you can have a play and see what it currently can—and can’t—do in the AccountRight Premier 2018.2 sample file.

To learn about our multi-currency beta program, where it’s headed, or how you can get involved, visit our website. And if you have any questions or feedback around the multi-currency test drive in Clearwater sample file, please let us know via the Multi Currency Test Drive board.

Suggest you look at the great multi-currency features in QuickBooks Onlinefrom Intuit Australia. Serious competition there !

Hi @Kym__Yeoward 

 

Multi-currency is due for release later this year - but it has always been the poor-mans part of the premier pack seeing little or no development over the years.

 

I have [untill recently] used the premier multi-currency part extensively - and was recently asked to give written comments on old and desired new features for the multi-currency 2014 version. I was then extensively interviewed re my comments.

 

I am sure other longterm users of multi-currency will have been so asked for critique.

 

If my comments and thoughts and recommendations are listened to - and are the same as other users the new multi-currency should be a whole lot different from the old.

 

I do know for example that the cumbersome dual currency account necessary in the old premier is to go!

 

Watch this space but I think there will be a lot of new features - thank goodness

Thank you for your post, @Kym__Yeoward

 

As the Doc mentioned, we are currently working on including multi currency functionality to AccountRight Premier. We expect to release a multi currency capable version of Premier by the end of this year. 

 

Please do post again should you have any further queries.

Multi-currency is a must and MYOB to not deliver multi-currency in the new version would undoubtedly send people looking elsewhere.

Thanks for your feedback. We are still committed to adding multi-currency functionality to the Premier version of the new AccountRight. However, the functionality is difficult to implement and won't be available in 2014. We will update this post when we have more information. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks for your feedback. We are still committed to adding multi-currency functionality to the Premier version of the new AccountRight. However, the functionality is proving difficult to implement and unfortunately won't be available in 2014. We will update this post when we have more information about a release. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.
