eInvoicing

If you've previously used eInvoicing, you'll need to cancel your existing eInvoicing agreement with your current provider. Then follow the steps below to register again to keep sending eInvoices from MYOB.

Electronic invoicing, or eInvoicing, is a business improvement initiative to enable businesses to exchange invoices directly between their accounting software.

This means:

  • improved security

  • less manual data entry

  • reduced risk of human error

  • businesses will get paid faster.

Currently, eInvoicing is mainly for businesses whose customers include government agencies and some large businesses, but the network of businesses is growing.

eInvoicing is supported by the Australian and New Zealand governments due to its business and economic benefits. To learn more about what's behind the eInvoicing initiative, check these government websites: Australia | New Zealand

MYOB Business is recognised by the government as an eInvoicing-ready product: Australia | New Zealand

As well as sending eInvoices from MYOB to customers who are able to receive eInvoices, you are now able to receive supplier eInvoices yourself straight into MYOB.

How does eInvoicing work?

Different accounting software systems don't typically talk to each other, so eInvoicing is made possible via a standardised protocol. This means both you and your customer need to be registered to send and receive eInvoices. Once you're registered, you can send the customer an eInvoice straight from MYOB and it'll be delivered into their accounting software, regardless of the solution they are using. No paper, no emails—just sent straight from your software into theirs.

You'll also be able to track the status of the eInvoices you've sent so you'll know when they've been received, approved for payment, or if anything went wrong.

Who can use eInvoicing

If you use MYOB Business or you access your online AccountRight company file in a web browser, you can register to use eInvoicing.

If you're an AccountRight desktop user, you need to have an online company file to be able to use eInvoicing. You can then register for eInvoicing when you access your company file in a web browser.

Any MYOB user can set up eInvoicing. Once you're set up, anyone who can currently create invoices in MYOB will be able to send eInvoices from MYOB and track their statuses

If you've previously used eInvoicing, you'll need to cancel your existing eInvoicing agreement with your current provider. Then follow the steps below to register again to keep sending eInvoices from MYOB.

You can now receive eInvoices from suppliers straight into your In tray – see Receiving eInvoices.
