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 your MYOB AccountRight Classic desktop software.

This includes updates for any future 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.

I’m 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 you’re able to 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.

I’m using AccountRight V19 with multi-location Toggle Section

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

I’m using AccountRight V19 with negative inventory Toggle Section

Negative inventory will not be supported in the online version of AccountRight.

You can still upgrade to the latest version by adjusting your inventory quantities and values to zero (or greater) and turn off negative inventory. 

If you need to continue using negative inventory, please call our friendly team to discuss your options on 0800 60 69 62. Or read more about it here.


I’m using AccountRight V19 with a 3rd Party Solution (an add-on) Toggle Section

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

If you choose not to migrate to the latest version of AccountRight, your existing ODBC integration to v19 will not be affected. However this means it will no longer be supported and you'll be using it at your own risk.

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.
