FAQs

How do I get the update?

If you’re using the latest version of AccountRight or AccountEdge, and you have a current subscription, you’ll see a pop-up message in your software with the compliance update is available. You can update your software from this message.

If you’re using an earlier version of AccountRight or AccountEdge, or you don’t have a current subscription, you can check for updates from the MYOB website (available end June.) 

 

What do I need to do if my backpackers weren't paid after 1 January 2017?

If your last pay to your working holiday makers was made on or before 31 December 2016, the new tax does not affect them.
