AccountRight 2017.2. An update by your design

As a result of feedback from the AccountRight community, we’ve made a heap of small 1% changes that pack a massive punch to the way you do your bookwork. We’ve got more of what you wanted.

We’ve got more of what you wanted:


Back up button has been added to the Combine Accounts and Combine Cards windows


The WIP button is back!


Grand Total now available in Superannuation Accrual by Fund Summary, Accrual by Category, and Employee Advice Summary reports


Advanced Search in ‘receive payments’ helps you find open invoices easier


New columns to choose from when viewing employees in the Cards List


New keyboard shortcuts for Recurring Purchases and Purchase Orders

And we’ve sweated the small stuff so you don’t have to:

  • Column widths are saved so you don’t have to adjust them again when you open custom reports
  • Rounding issue fixed in Prepare Budgets window
  • Leading and trailing spaces now removed when copying recurring transactions
  • Inactive items no longer appear in time billing invoices
  • We’ve fixed some distracting spelling and grammar errors

We’ve also added some much-needed hot items, such as a way to tidy up
unwanted GST codes and an advanced search to find opened invoices:

Find open invoices easier

Need to find an invoice based on the invoice number when receiving payments?
Use the new Advanced Search option in the Receive Payments ‘Customer field’ to search
open invoices by the invoice number or the invoice amount.

Tidy up unwanted GST codes

Merge two tax or GST codes to remove any unused codes that are no longer required

 Maintain your historical records as the information is transferred to the combined GST code
