Tax changes may be on your doorstep, but if you install the new AccountRight 2017.1 release you’ll rest easy.

AccountRight 2017.1 includes:

  • Compliance changes for Australian businesses – you can stay compliant with Fringe Benefits Tax reporting changes and if you employ working holiday makers.
  • Easier ways to search for transactions – there are more search options in your bank feeds and you now only need to type a few letters or an amount to find transactions in Sales and Purchases Register windows.
  • Send allocation query reports to your clients for review – if you need to follow up transactions in your bank feeds, you can now copy these to Windows clipboard, and then paste the details into a spreadsheet, document or email.
  • Bug fixes and improvements – we’ve addressed niggles and suggested improvements from customers.

Those are just the highlights. There’s a heap more in this release – see what’s new.

Upgrading your software is easy.


  • Install it, open it up and click Upgrade a company file.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts to find your old file and upload it to us.

It’s that simple. We’ll do the rest and let you know when your upgraded file is ready to use (usually within a few hours).

NOTE: If you’re using the following AccountRight features, you might not be able to upgrade just yet as these aren’t available in the latest AccountRight: M-Powered Payments multi-currency, negative inventory or multi-location stock tracking add-ons that require ODBC to connect to AccountRight.

If you’re using any third-party solution connected to your accounting software, you must check with the vendor before upgrading.
