MYOB Essentials

Setup: Add a budget





7 Posts



Feedback from our clients tells us that many clients would like a simple budgeting feature.


One suggestion was to enter in either a monthly, quarterly or yearly budgeted figure for each account and then a report to print at intervals to see how the actual expenses are comparing.





Current Status: Done
Last Changed: September 2014

We are happy to consider adding Budgets in the future. I encourage others who want Budgets to add their vote by clicking the + vote button.

This really does need to be addressed. As said by many, budgeting is an essential and basic requirement of any sized business. Pretty please?

As you have mentioned, currently this idea has been marked as Under Consideration for MYOB Essentials. At this stage we are unable to provide an exact time frame for when this idea will be marked as in development or implemented in the program. However its one of the things that the team are actively looking into for future updates. We are still encourage clients that would like to see this function included in the program to vote and comment if required for this idea.
