change from AccountRight to AccountRight Live

Hi, 

I would like to move to a fully cloud based version of MYOB, that operates like Xero - meaning i can access the entire company file from any web browser. Is this what the AccountRight Live does? Can i just move my file to Live, and if so how? I would like to be able to generate invoices/payslips etc when I am not near my home or work PC (they have MYOB program installed), which at the moment is impossible. Thanks in advance.

Hi @Elitebal

 

AccountRight 2018 allows for the company file to be stored locally or online. To access a company file, be it a local or online file, you do need to have the AccountRight program installed. This does mean that the company information is not able to accessed through a web browser. One of the benefits of this setup is that you can use AccountRight 2018 company files locally or online and use an online file locally if you don't have an internet connection.

 

You can upload an AccountRight 2018 locally stored file to the cloud via opening that file and going File>>Go Online (upload this file) to upload that file to the cloud. It should also be noted that while in the cloud you can use access to additional benefits such as MYOB Invoices*, Online emailing and much more.

 

Alternatively, if you would like a full based web-browser program MYOB Essentials may be better suited to your needs.

 

*Mobile based app that can be used to manage contacts and record invoices and quotes while on the go

Kind regards,
Steven

Re: change from AccountRight to AccountRight Live

Hi Steven,

I already use the cloud based file. I want to be able to access the file from anywhere, and do mostly wages, payroll etc when I cannot be in the office or even overseas. Can MYOB essentials also do payroll?

 

I'm really trying to avoid moving over to Xero which offfers all of these options, but I need a mobile solution.

 

Regards,

Hi @Elitebal

 

We do offer a migration service to migrate from AccountRight or AccountEdge to MYOB Essentials. You can find out more information and arrange for that service to be actioned via Move to Essentials.
