Important Information on AccountEdge

Hi everyone,


Last year we announced that we would not be making AccountEdge compatible with Apple's newer operating systems. Due to ongoing compatibility and compliance obligations, MYOB has made the difficult decision to no longer support AccountEdge from 1 April 2022


Users holding an AccountEdge subscription plan/MYOB Cover Membership will receive a compliance update in June 2021.  Please be aware that this is the final update that will be provided for our AccountEdge software. This update would not include changes to Payroll Reporting (STP Phase 2).


Note: You will still be able to access your file and continue to use AccountEdge after 1 April 2022.

Although we're changing the way we support AccountEdge in the future, we are still supporting your business. MYOB has a range of solutions in place for you and can help you move your data across whenever you choose. The range of solutions are below:

  • MYOB Essentials is a browser-based platform, which will allow users to manage their accounts anywhere, anytime including on a mobile device, MAC OS or Windows OS. Users would be able to manage accounts, generate sales and purchases, prepare and process pays, and much more. Note: Multi-currency, inventory, categories, and time-billing features are currently not available in MYOB Essentials.


  • AccountRight is a browser-based platform that allows more complex tasks to be completed via a corresponding Windows desktop application. This will be the most suited product for the majority of users that wish to use more complex features such as multi-currency, inventory, categories and time-billing features in their product. These complex features are available in the Windows desktop application. Note: AccountRight is a Windows-based product that allows for files to be stored in the cloud to be accessed via an Internet browser including a MAC OS X browser. A Windows PC would be required for company file maintenance.

  • For those larger users of AccountEdge or companies that may have outgrown AccountEdge, we do have a large range of Bigger Business solutions available.


Should you need assistance with helping decide what product may best suit your needs or wish to further discuss your migration options we do recommend contacting our phone-based team to discuss your options.

Kind regards,
