MYOB have recently announced that as of 30th September 2019 they will no longer provide features, patches, compliance updates or product support for AccountRight Classic (sometimes known as v19) in Australia and New Zealand. This announcement also applies to all MYOB Desktop versions including MYOB Premier editions.
It was bound to happen eventually. MYOB have finally pulled up stumps on their legacy desktop software after recognising that cloud-based accounting software is the way of the future. Put simply, the Serial Number that MYOB continually ask you to verify will no longer work – forcing you to either upgrade or move to a new system.
In our mind, this is not a bad thing. Desktop systems are from a bygone era and cloud-based accounting systems introduce features that make business and software collaboration so much easier.
