Hi Everyone

Following the update of the latest Tax Tables in AccountRight and Essentials, here are the answers to some  frequently asked questions on the matter:


Where can I get the update from?


MYOB Essentials - has been automatically updated and ready to use.

AccountRight - Detailed information on accessing the update can be found here AccountRight 2020.3.1 is now available 


How can I check my AccountRight version?

In your company file, go to the Help menu and choose About MYOB AccountRight.


After installing the update, the version number should be 2020.3.1.


Note: If you use an online company file in AccountRight 2020.3 your version number will not change. 




How can I check if the new tax tables are installed? 

When processing your pays after installing the update, the Tax table Revision Date on Step 2: Employee Pays of the Process Payroll will have the date of 13/10/2020.



The date in the General Payroll Information window (Setup>>General Payroll Information>>Tax table Revision date) will update after processing the first pay with the new tax tables.


Why am I getting a fatal error when installing the update?
