This blog is a simple list of progress made at the association, key decisions taken, and developments.  This association is intended to create a lobby for the resumption of proper distribution of MYOB-related software in the UK and Eire.  We will make available all news that we can - as it occurs.  If you would like to give us a tip please email us at: info@myobusergroup.co.uk

However we much prefer participation in the Forums on the next tab: Forums

    SO we ran codes for over 100 businesses today.  They are all operating software over 13 years old.  We hope that they are continuing to be successful despite all the pressures.

    We are continuing to offer this service.  However there are many threats to what we do.  MYOB is now a firmly legacy software. If anything in our operation fails there is no safeguard. Nobody to sue!

    Making Tax digital for VAT makes it compulsory to file electronically for all UK vat-registered businesses from April 22.  For those unsure of what they are doing this will become a problem.  There is a threat that the old MYOB software will become incompatible with operating systems.  There is a deeper threat that the code calculation mechanism will suddenly become inoperable.

    There is even a threat that the way that we have rescued MYOB users will become inoperable.  We could lose the ability to upgrade datafiles to Acclivity account edge (which we have now done for over a hundred ex-MYOB users).

    If there was a moment to move on... this is it.

    We offer a general support to all Accountedge users through this website and will gradually reorientate our work here to support this new software.

    We will be making a few changes to our website over the next few weeks.  If you experience any problems please let us know by email.

    You should now have received two emails telling you about this quarter's file reconfirmations for MYOB Users.  We will be generating confirmation codes this Friday (21st December) so if you still need a confirmation code please add your company file code to your User Group profile now.

    See How to Reconfirm (you have to login to see this page).

    Wishing you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

    HMRC have now put back the start date for Making Tax Digital (MTD) for some businesses and organisations until the first VAT period starting on or after 1 October 2019. This deferral applies to trusts, not-for-profit organisations (unless they are run through a limited company), divisional and group registrations, businesses based overseas, plus those required to make VAT payments on account or who use the VAT Annual Accounting scheme. 

    Businesses with a VAT threshold below £1.35m per year can use the VAT Annual Accounting Scheme - and this is a good way to delay the MTD problem.

    In addition, the recent House of Lords report, Making Tax Digital for VAT: Treating Small Businesses Fairly seeks to delay the start of MTD for all businesses. The report states that HMRC, taxpayers and the software market are unprepared for the implementation of MTD for VAT in April 2019. It recommends that the Government defers the date for mandating MTD for VAT for all businesses by at least one year, while encouraging businesses to join voluntarily. We will wait and see whether any of its conclusions are accepted by the Government.

    Email us at info@myobusergroup.co.uk if you'd like us to help you simplify your path to MTD,

    The HMRC's Making Tax Digital (MTD) will go live in April 2019 for VAT. We have examined  options for MYOB and Acclivity users and expect to be able to provide a solution for uploading the required data.   Have a look at the discussion of the issues on our forum and have your say!

    We have now generated the final set of codes for the Quarter 3 confirmation run.  If you haven't already done so, please copy your confirmation code/s from your MYOB User Group profile and use them to confirm your datafile in MYOB. 

  • 08 Mar 2018 10:36 AM | Mark Hill (Administrator)

    We are preparing to generate confirmation codes for the 2nd quarter of 2018.  If you put your MYOB company file code/s on your user group profile now we will generate your confirmation codes for you this Sunday (11th March).  Remember: it is important that you use you code to confirm your file as soon as possible.

    Priority Software Ltd., an Israel-based provider of ERP solutions has acquired Acclivity LLC, developers of AccountEdge accounting software.  Acclivity was formed as the management buyout of MYOB in the US in 2008. Priority has its HQ in Israel with offices in the US, Romania and Oxford!

    Around 45 Acclivity staff have joined Priority US including the founders, Scott Davisson and Tom Nash. The latter will both stay in the larger organisation in the role of MDs according to Davisson.

    There is definitely a future for AccountEdge which will please existing customers. The product will continue to exist as a business unit under Priority US and the roadmap is being worked on. Priority will bring a depth of experience, especially in cloud that should help them develop a cloud solution.

    In the UK and Ireland, AccountEdge is exclusively distributed by Mamut Software Ltd, a Visma company, however they only sell a mac based version.  Although that may remain the case in the short term, Priority are likely to take control of that distribution in time.  If so, this will be very good news for UK MYOB Users. In the meantime UK users can buy Acclivity Accountedge (Canada) online directly from Acclivity.

    We are planning another series of training courses in February - focusing on getting the best from MYOB and AccountEdge, this time also looking at the implications of Making Tax Digital.  Cost - about £120 (+ VAT) for a full day including lunch.  We can tailor the course to those coming.  Possible locations include South Downs, London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Dublin.  But we can run a course near you if at least seven members can come.  Let us know if you are interested - with possible location/ dates.
