MYOB AE Reporter release notes and install guide—3.5.3 (New Zealand)

Release date—5 May 2020 

Release notes 

Installing this release will install new and updated report formats. To update your practice and client masters, you can either copy from these new master versions, or manually update your own practice and client versions using the information provided about each report format change included below. Masters is now version 3.5.300.

Roll forward

We've rolled forward the Reporter Masters right up to 2023. This means if there aren't any format changes between now and 2023 you can roll forward without waiting for a new release.

New insolvency note

A new Insolvency note is now available for companies. It will print if your liabilities exceed your assets.
Alternatively, to force the note on:

  1. Go to Non-transaction data > Notes > Print Control > Insolvency.
  2. Select Yes for the insolvency note.

    This will only print the note heading.

To type details for the note:

  1. Go to Non-transaction data > Notes > Contents > Insolvency.
  2. Select the insolvency note
  3. Type the details in the text box.
Compilation report changes

The paragraph for the Departure from Framework is no longer required.

In the compilation report format, rows 24-27 are set to False so they no longer print.

If you have the compilation report at practice or client level, you must change rows 24-27 to False. This is because this update won't overwrite anything you've got at a practice or client level.

Notes - distributions changes

In the format Notes - Distributions we've added the highlighted text to the paragraph
