MYOB AE/AO release notes—2023.1 (New Zealand)

Release date—12 July 2023

We've fixed some client accounting issues in this release.

Client accounting

Statutory Reporter

Minutes of trust

  • The spacing in the Capital Distribution paragraph has been updated.
  • We've added a new minute for No income distribution.

Annual General Meeting

  • Spelling error corrected on Special purpose financial statements paragraph.


  • We've updated the Footer and Footer notes to include the following wording These financial statements have been compiled without undertaking an audit engagement or review engagement.


  • In the Imputation Credit to Retained Earnings workpaper, the (Profit)/Loss field is deducting depreciation twice from the profit amount.
    This happens when there are duplicated account codes within one account group folder, which is used to calculate the (Profit)/Loss field. This is now fixed.

Resolved issues

  • Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object when rolling over a workpaper from 2022 to 2023. This is now fixed.
