News on an MYOB classic
Important announcement about our AccountRight Classic (v19) software
As of 30th September 2019, MYOB will no longer provide features, patches, compliance updates or product support for AccountRight Classic (sometimes known as v19).
After this date anyone with a perpetual licence will still be able to access their file, but you will no longer have updates to your software. This means no new feature updates and no new compliance updates.
We will also no longer provide updates
to ensure AccountRight works on new
Windows operating systems.
Here’s our Head of Product Dale Dixon with more.
Hundreds of thousands of businesses are already enjoying the benefits of working both offline and online with the latest AccountRight to get the job done (offline access is a key feature after all).
This includes electronic BAS, Single Touch Payroll and more.
Over the next 12 months we’ll be contacting you to help find a
solution for your
AccountRight Classic customers.
How can you work with clients on this?
Check out our full Partner Toolkit below to help you work through this transition!
We’ll release a final FY19/20 compliance update.
We’ll stop product support for our AccountRight Classic platform.

The next steps
The impact of this decision on some of your clients isn’t lost on us – please see below for more information:
We’re in the process of developing a new and improved multi-currency solution in the latest version of AccountRight so that your client can upgrade as soon as possible. Some features of multi-currency are available in 2018.3 and additional components will be incorporated into all AccountRight release through to May 2019.
Register interest here for the Multi-currency beta to ensure we can notify you once your clients are eligible to migrate and enjoy all the additional benefits of being online.
M-Powered Payments is not supported in AccountRight 2018. We’re in the process of developing a supplier and payroll payments solution for the newer versions of AccountRight to replace M-Powered Payments. It will be ready in advance of the September 2019 deadline.
In the meantime, M-Powered Payments users can create and ABA (Australian Banking Association) file in the latest version of AccountRight and load it up to your internet banking or business banking portal for payment. Bank feeds will then let you automatically allocate the payment in AccountRight.
We’re in the process of developing a multi-location solution in the latest version of AccountRight so that you can upgrade as soon as possible. It will be ready in advance of the September 2019 deadline.
Negative inventory is not currently supported in AccountRight 2018. If your clients require this feature, please connect with your partner manager who will be able to assist.
Super Portal is not supported in the newer versions of AccountRight.
By moving to the newer version of AccountRight, you have access to Pay Super which gives you the ability to submit super with the click of the button directly from AccountRight. You can also control who can authorise payments and track payment processing status. Pay Super is a free service included in an AccountRight subscription however, as this is a live service, users will need an active subscription per each company file.
Users will need to complete the Pay Super application process to activate this service.
Most of our developer partners who have built integrations for v19 have in the past 5 years also developed integrations to AccountRight 2018. We recommend you contact your developer and ask about their integration support for AccountRight 2018. If you are unable to use your existing add-on with AccountRight 2018, we recommend checking out our directory of over 300 add-ons by visiting myob.com/addons.
Accountants Enterprise/Accountants Office and EXO clients who have M-Powered merchant facilities can continue to transaction and use their M-Powered Services as normal. However, from 1 Sept 2018, clients cannot add/change legal entities or ABNs on their accounts as to do this would require a new application.
We will be ending support of ODBC from September 2018. This means there will be no more technical integration support for new ODBC developments from September 2018. We recommend developers use Stack Overflow for future peer support with MYOB ODBC.
We will cease issuance of new ODBC licenses and keys from September 2018. This means that no new ODBC Keys will be issued, however any existing ODBC key will continue to work. OEM issued ODBC Keys will still be able to activate ODBC licences for clients. All other activations will cease.
We will cease activation of all ODBC licences and keys from August 2019 in alignment with the cease of support for AccountRight v19.
