A smarter way to manage your bills
Not available in AccountRight Basics.
At the 2015 MYOB Roadshow, which kicked off in Melbourne last week, we announced a great new feature for AccountRight, that many have dubbed ‘smart bills’.
In a nutshell, here’s how it works. If you’re working online, you can now also store your supplier invoices securely online and link them to your AccountRight bills.
You drag and drop documents into the AccountRight In Tray, or email them to a special email address and they’ll appear like magic in the In Tray. You can then link the documents to existing bills in your company file, or create a new bill based on the information in the supplier’s invoice.
Things get real smart when you create a new bill. Using advanced OCR technology, we’ll grab what we can from the supplier invoices and fill in the details for you, so you can create bills faster and easier.
So now you can cut down on data entry, reduce paper filing, and keep all your supplier documents nicely organised and easy to find. It also makes it easier to work with your accountant or bookkeeper as they’ll always have the source document to refer to when reviewing your file.

We’ve made some great improvements to the company file sign-on process, so you don’t have to enter two sets of credentials when opening online company files.
When signing on to your online file, you can now choose to link your my.MYOB account to your company file user ID. When you next open the file, the Command Centre will appear automatically - you won’t need to enter a user ID or password.
We’ve also got a new feature for large accounting practices who assign multiple people in their business to review client files. The new ‘Advisor’ user account helps keep to a minimum the number of logins to set up for each client file, while maintaining maximum security. For help creating an Advisor user, see our ‘Add new company file users’ help page.
[Update 18/2: Note that in the User Access window, you can only enter email addresses that have 35 characters or less. We're working on increasing this limit. If your email address has more than 35 characters, you can link your account by selecting the "Link this User ID to your my.MYOB account" option in the Sign-on window, as shown above ]
Consolidated To Do List bill payments
Not available in AccountRight Basics.
Previously, if you used the Accounts Payable view of the To Do List to pay a few bills, a separate Pay Bill transaction would be recorded for each purchase, even if you were paying the one supplier.
Now when paying several bills for the same supplier, a single Pay Bill transaction will be recorded. This makes it much easier to match up the payment with what appears in your bank feed and statement.
Roll back a closed financial year
For those times where you close a financial year, and then realise you need to record another adjustment for that year, we’ve introduced a great new rollback feature.
You can now roll back the last financial year that you closed, to enter adjustments and new transactions, or to reverse existing transactions.
However, you won’t be able to edit or delete transactions dated in the year you’ve rolled back to.
To roll back the last financial year, go to the File menu > Close a Year > Roll Back a Financial Year. Then when you’re done, you can close the financial year again. Any transactions dated after the year you roll back are not affected.
In this release, we’ve sped up a couple more popular features of AccountRight.
Reports to help you analyse and compare
For AccountRight Standard and Plus, check out these reports that are now available for you:
(Plus) Time Billing
(Australia only) Improved superannuation reporting
The Superannuation Payment by Fund and Superannuation Payment by Employee reports in AccountRight Plus and Premier now list Pay Super payments, so you can now see all the superannuation payments you’ve made electronically in two easy to read reports.

How to get the update

Using Windows XP or Server 2003? AccountRight 2015.1 comes with the latest Microsoft .NET Framework software, which isn’t compatible with Windows XP or Server 2003. This means both the PC and Server Editions of AccountRight 2015.1 won’t install on Windows XP or Server 2003. We recommend Windows 7 or later for PCs, and Windows Server 2008 SP2 or later for servers.
