MYOB Set to Scrap Accounting Desktop Product - 11th September 2018

AccountRight Classic, which has been in the market for about 20 years and is one of MYOB's original desktop products, won't be updated beyond September 30 next year. 

For those who want up-to-date support and systems beyond September 2019, this will mean an upgrade to MYOB's cloud-based suite of products.

According to MYOB boss Tim Reed, about three per cent of paying users are still on AccountRight Classic. He told Accountants Daily the bulk of new users, about 94 per cent last year, opt for online-only services. 

Mr Reed also said this move is "absolutely" in line with MYOB's broader plans to cease investment in desktop products. 

"This is in line with what we've been telling clients about where we're headed. Going forward, we envisage more of these announcements," Mr Reed said.

At this stage, Mr Reed said dates aren't set for further wind-downs.
