MYOB Business Terms of Use

MYOB Business Terms of Use

1. Introduction

These terms and conditions (Terms) apply to your use of the MYOB Business product. These Terms are a legal contract between you and MYOB and this document describes your and our legal rights and obligations. You cannot use MYOB Business without agreeing to these Terms.

Tip for reading these Terms. Some words in these Terms have defined meanings; each time that word is used throughout these Terms, it has the same meaning. For example: the words “you” and “your” mean the Subscriber and/or User (as applicable). You can find a list of the defined words and their meaning at the end of the document.

2.  Subscribing to and using MYOB Business

2.1        Services.  

We agree to supply, and you agree to use, MYOB Business in accordance with these Terms.

2.2        Subscription Plans. 

MYOB offers a range of subscription plans that cover products, add-ons, Integrated Services and tiers of support services; to see the range of subscription plans that are available, check out the MYOB Business webpage (Subscription Plans).

Subscription Plans have varying product and support inclusions and limitations, such as limits on the number of monthly transactions or limits on the number of employees paid per month. These limits will be disclosed during your sign-up or in other communications made available to you, including via our webpage. For information on Payroll limits check out this Help page.

You can find details regarding your Subscription Plan via “My Product” which is accessible from the "My Account" dashboard.

2.3        Upgrading and downgrading your Subscription Plan. 

MYOB Business Subscription Plans can be easily upgraded or downgraded at any time via the “My Account” dashboard by Users with appropriate authority.  

2.4        Access to MYOB Business. 

To access MYOB Business, you must purchase a Subscription Plan. As a Subscriber, you control access to your MYOB Business product by giving access to Users. It’s important to understand that by granting Users access:

  • Users will be able to view and modify your Subscriber Data; and
  • Certain Users (Administrator, Accountant, Bookkeeper, and Payroll users) will be able to accrue Fees on behalf of the Subscriber.

Only Administrators or the owner of the business can modify or remove User access. This can be done at any time by updating your User list within MYOB Business or by contacting us.

To learn more about the level of access and permissions of Users, check out this Help Page.

2.5        Things you should do when using MYOB Business. 

When using MYOB Business, you must do so in accordance with the following general responsibilities and obligations:

  • Provide current contact details. You must ensure that we have your up-to-date contact details
  • Provide accurate data. You are responsible for verifying the accuracy and completeness of the data (including Payroll Data) that you or your Users input into MYOB Business.
  • Backup Data. There is an inherent risk of data loss with any technology which is why it’s important that you take steps to safeguard your data. You should retain a copy of your records and all Subscriber Data at all times. Your access to your Subscriber Data within MYOB Business is conditional upon you paying the Fees in full when due.
  • Comply with Relevant Laws. It’s your responsibility to comply with relevant laws including retaining records for Tax Law and ER Law compliance purposes (as applicable). If you decide to terminate your Subscription Plan, you should extract your Subscriber Data in its entirety as soon as possible prior to or following termination. MYOB is not responsible for your failure to meet your legal obligations.
  • Secure your data. At MYOB we take data security seriously. Unless you also take security precautions, it may be possible for an unauthorised person to access Subscriber Data. You must ensure that your username and password are not misused, and remain secure and confidential. You should never:
    • tell anyone your username and password; or
    • let anyone else, whether acting as your agent or not, access MYOB Business using your username and password.

You should be particularly careful when accessing MYOB Business from a public computer.

If you think anyone else might know your login credentials, you should reset the affected password in MYOB Business, or contact us without delay to arrange a password reset.
