If your computer meets the recommended system requirements, you're ready to go. If you'll be using AccountRight in a network, see Set up a network. If you're already using AccountRight and you're looking for the latest version, see Getting the latest version.

We recommend you use Google Chrome to download the installation file (download Chrome here). We've seen cases where other browsers, like Internet Explorer, can affect the file extension of downloaded files. What browser am I currently using?

Having trouble installing AccountRight?

Some antivirus software can interrupt software installation. If you have issues installing, try temporarily disabling your antivirus software and enable it again after installing. If you need some more installation help, see Installation troubleshooting.

Who can use AccountRight?

You can use the latest AccountRight version to enter data if you:

  • have been invited to access an online company file (learn more about accepting an invitation), or

If you don't have an AccountRight subscription, company files you create or upgrade in the latest AccountRight version will become read-only after 30 days.

If you're already using AccountRight, you can check the version in the Welcome window that appears when you start AccountRight. The AccountRight shortcut on your desktop also contains the version number.
