- We also feature case studies in our Excel online training courses and Digital and Social Media Marketing courses.
Migrating from MYOB Accountright
Accounting software programs are databases essentially made up of contacts (suppliers & customers), inventory items (or services), employees and invoices and purchases and your chart of accounts. When you make the decision to migrate away from your current software program to a new one you need to export all the data and then import it into your new accounting software program.
The migration from MYOB AccountRight to Xero is very common and you’ll most likely need to use Microsoft Excel spreadsheet program halfway through to make sure all of the data is correct and matched.

Just What IS Cloud Accounting?
For the most part, MYOB has been the dominant accounting software provider in Australia. MYOB is a global company that started creating their software in Australia. In 2013 it was purchased by a large US Private Equity company; Bain Capital.
After software version 19.5, the company had to re-create their software from scratch because the code-base it was previously built on was no longer going to be supported. MYOB is now built on a Microsoft Programming Platform called .NET.
We have been proudly teaching people to use MYOB through our MYOB Training Courses since 2006. We are proud to offer our Lifetime Membership option when you enrol in our MYOB courses. MYOB has been very popular with accountants, and as a result, it was widely recommended to small business owners as a way of better managing their financial and compliance requirements.
DID YOU KNOW? MYOB’s founder, Craig Winkler, sold out of the company when Archer Capital took over. Winkler is now a major shareholder in MYOB’s largest competitor in Australia and New Zealand: Xero.

Why Should I Use Cloud Accounting Software?
There are lots of reasons why you should opt for cloud accounting software, if you haven’t already. Some include:
- Most small businesses realise the benefit of both their staff and their accountant (who often works remotely from his/her own office) can see the information and make entries and modifications at the same time.
- With the emergence of Bankfeeds that exists for cloud accounting, much of the data that previously had to be entered by entry-level bookkeepers has become redundant.
- Having a hosted solution means that the software provider ensures the highest level of security and storage (most of them seem to be using Amazon’s AWS) which means you don’t need to worry as much about having a backup and moving files around.
- Interaction between your accounting software and other programs like quoting, workflow management, project management and MANY others means you can have a more comprehensive system that all works together using what is called API (Application Programming Interfaces).
- Live data means it is up-to-date and you can get instant reports about profitability, cashflow and credit management.
- Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence means that the software will learn about your transactions and the coding that you use (or should use).
