Thank you for visiting our Partner Zone. This area is an exclusive space for MYOB Partners. Find out how to Partner with MYOB.
I am currently using MYOB essentials as a sole trader and have recently changed to a Partnership.
I have called MYOB support but didnt get any help.
Do I need to create a new business? So that would mean deactivating MYOB for my sole trader account?
Any advice would be great

A Sole Trader and a Partnership are two destinctly different entities. There is obviously a new partner, which means you need Capital Accounts for each partner. The new partnership will have a new ABN. All the Assets of the Sole Trader would presumably have been transferred to the Partnership. Were there any debtors and creditors, and what happened to them? It is too complcated to continue using this file.
So, my suggestion would be to start a new file. You will need to keep the old one active until you have lodged your tax retirns for this year, and then before de-activating it, make copies of all data and relavant reports, as once de-activated or cancelled, you will not be able to re-activate the file and access any data.
