AccountRight 2017.2. An update by your design

As a result of feedback from the AccountRight community, we’ve made a heap of small 1% changes that pack a massive punch to the way you do your bookwork. We’ve got more of what you wanted.

We’ve got more of what you wanted:


Back up button has been added to the Combine Accounts and Combine Cards windows


The WIP button is back!


Grand Total now available in Superannuation Accrual by Fund Summary, Accrual by Category, and Employee Advice Summary reports


Advanced Search in ‘receive payments’ helps you find open invoices easier


New columns to choose from when viewing employees in the Cards List


New keyboard shortcuts for Recurring Purchases and Purchase Orders

And we’ve sweated the small stuff so you don’t have to:

  • Column widths are saved so you don’t have to adjust them again when you open custom reports
  • Rounding issue fixed in Prepare Budgets window
  • Leading and trailing spaces now removed when copying recurring transactions
  • Inactive items no longer appear in time billing invoices
  • We’ve fixed some distracting spelling and grammar errors

We’ve also added some much-needed hot items, such as
simpler BAS reporting and gearing up for Single Touch Payroll.

Simpler BAS Reporting

Merge two tax codes to remove any codes that are no longer required, while still
maintaining historical records attached to the original tax code

Reduce complexity by combining tax codes and easily moving to Simpler BAS reporting

Preparing for Single Touch Payroll (STP)

When you enter an employee’s TFN in the employee card, you will get a
warning message if the TFN is invalid

There is a new STP Category field in payroll categories. Don’t worry, this one’s not mandatory

Updating is easy

And to make the deal even sweeter, if you update now, we’ll throw in a $50 gift card of your choice!ˆ
