Are there any steps I need to do before I migrate my data? Toggle Section

Yes, before you submit your request there are a few things you will need to do to prepare your file and ensure no transactions are lost:

  1. Make sure all users stop entering data before exporting to avoid additional costs.

  2. Reconcile all your bank and credit card accounts. Address unreconciled transactions and identify issues such as duplicate entries.

  3. Resolve all outstanding invoices or bills that are not going to be paid.

  4. Ensure your contact lists and employee leave records are accurate and consistent.

  5. Review your inventory and adjust any negative stock. Note that MYOB do not handle negative stock.

  6. Make a file backup.

Are there any steps I need to do after I migrate my data? Toggle Section

Yes, after your data has been migrated there are some things you will need to do to ensure your reports are correct:

  1. Please seek advice from your BAS agent or accountant when running your first lot of reports for BAS, PAYG, and super. As transactions migrate across as General Journals, rather than entering through the MYOB payroll system, your BAS link will not pick up the figures from the payroll history.

  2. We recommend you obtain the advice of your tax agent or financial adviser when completing your first round of GST reporting after the conversion. Find an advisor >
