News on an MYOB classic

Important announcement about our
AccountRight Classic (v19) software

As of 30th September 2019, MYOB will no longer provide features, patches, compliance updates or product support for AccountRight Classic (sometimes known as v19).

After this date anyone with a perpetual licence will still be able to access their file, but you will no longer have updates to your software. This means no new feature updates and no new compliance updates.

We will also no longer provide updates to ensure AccountRight works on new
Windows operating systems.

Working towards the future. Today.

When we developed this product, business was done differently to now. The books had to be worked on in the office, data entry was done by hand and getting that information to your trusted advisor required multiple drives, file versions and a booked face-to-face meeting.

Today’s business is all about working whenever, wherever.

Now collaboration can be done from anywhere. Tech speeds up data entry. As the needs of our clients and industry have changed, we’ve had to change the way we develop software as well.
We are committed to delivering solutions that provide users with:


The greatest value


Improved business outcomes


Better connections with trusted advisors

We believe this to be the most effective path forward.

Hundreds of thousands of businesses are already enjoying the benefits of working both offline and online with the latest AccountRight to get the job done (offline access is a key feature after all).

How can you work with clients on this?

The next steps

The impact of this decision on some of your clients isn’t lost on us – please see below for more information:

My client is using AccountRight Classic Toggle Section

If they have an MYOB subscription they’ll automatically have access to the new AccountRight. Give me the upgrade instructions.

If not, it’s a good idea to upgrade your client now to receive all the benefits of online accounting (including compliance updates).

My client is using AccountRight V19 with multi-currency Toggle Section

Multi-currency functionality is now available in the latest version of AccountRight (Premier only). You’ll notice we’ve made several improvements and there are still a few differences between the v19 and online versions.

To find out if your client can upgrade to the latest version today, and see what’s different in the online version, check out our help topic on how to upgrade a multi-currency company file.

My client is using AccountRight V19 with multi-location Toggle Section

Users who hold inventory in multiple locations and use multiple inventory location tracking to track stock quantities, can now upgrade to the latest version of AccountRight (Premier only). To read more about multi-location functionality, please refer to Multiple stock locations

My client is using AccountRight V19 with negative inventory Toggle Section

Negative inventory is not currently supported in AccountRight 2018. If your clients require this feature, please connect with the MYOB team who can assist.

My client is using AccountRight V19 with add-ons Toggle Section

Most of our developer partners who have built integrations for v19 have in the past 5 years also developed integrations to AccountRight 2018. We recommend you contact your developer and ask about their integration support for AccountRight 2018. If you are unable to use your existing add-on with AccountRight 2018, we recommend checking out our directory of over 300 add-ons by visiting

Developers Toggle Section

As of September 2018, we ceased issuing new ODBC licenses and keys. Any existing ODBC key will continue to work.

We will cease activation of all ODBC licences and keys from August 2019 in alignment with the cease of support for AccountRight v19.
