FAQs & troubleshooting

How do I create an MYOB account?


When you receive your invitation to connect with your advisor, you'll have the choice to log in using an MYOB account or a Google login.

If you choose to use an MYOB account but don’t have one yet, you can create one from the Portal login page.

  1. On the login page, click the green Sign up button, or if the Don’t have an account? message appears, click the Sign up hyperlink.
    You'll be directed to a Sign up to MYOB page.

  2. Enter your email address.

  3. Enter a password.

  4. Click Sign up.

  5. Return to the Portal login page.

  6. Click Sign in and then enter the details for the MYOB account you've just created.

How do I access my portal directly without using the link in an email?


Bookmark the URL,, where 'practicename' is your advisor's business name.


Unable to login to the Portal


If you're having trouble logging in to the Portal, check the following:

  • Check if you've already signed up. If you have, you'll see a message saying xxxx@gmail already exists.

  • Make sure you've cleared your browser's cache and then try logging in to the portal.

  • Try logging in to the Portal using a different browser. It will usually be, where 'practicename' is your advisor's business name. Otherwise, ask your advisor for the Portal address.

  • Try resetting your password using the option on the login page.

If you've tried all the above and are still having issues, ask your advisor to go to MYOB Practice, click the Help button (?) in the left menu bar, select Log a support call and complete the Support request form. Ask your advisor to give us the email address you're trying to use, so we can reset the password.

Error message: Sorry, but it seems you failed to authenticate...


If you're getting a message to check your credentials, you're probably accessing your Portal using an email address that is different to the one that your advisor is using for you.

Check the email invitation you received from your advisor. This email has the address that your advisor is using for the collaborative Portal.

If the email address on the invitation is incorrect, let your advisor know and they'll re-send the invitation with the correct email.

Why don't I see anything when I log into my portal?


When you first access your collaborative Portal, the Tasks page is displayed. You might not see anything in this view if your accountant hasn't created a task for you to action. Simply click the Documents tab to view your documents.
