Practice MYOB settings

To enable MYOB AE/AO to perform tasks that require administrator access to MYOB’s online services, you will need to specify MYOB administrator details for your practice on the Practice my.MYOB Settings window.

The Login field on the Practice my.MYOB Settings window requires a valid MYOB Login that has both administrator and partner administrator access rights to the client code specified in the MYOB client code field.

If you do not have a login with Administrator rights, you will need to use to create a new login or edit an existing one. See Identifying if you have administrator MYOB access for more information.

If you are working with online data you need to configure your MYOB settings to access your data. This will require your MYOB client code.

Once your Practice MYOB settings are configured you will be able to:

  • create other MYOB Logins

  • access AE/AO Live

  • manage AccountRight 2013 or later file access rights.

    You must enter an MYOB Login that has administrator access to the practice’s my.MYOB account.

    Your clients should be instructed to send all AccountRight Live invitations to this email address.
    Your clients will need to invite the MYOB Login that you have specified here, so that their AccountRight Live file(s) can be shared as an Administrator. This is required to enable MYOB AE/AO to manage your employee’s access rights to the file.
