Easy peasy converting your MYOB AO ledgers to Xero

We recently updated My Xero for our accounting practices to make managing their clients and staff even easier.  You can read about these introduced changes here.

Now we’ve made the process better for those accounting practices using MYOB Accountants Office General Ledger.  We are offering an overnight conversion process, via a special upload page, that converts an MYOB AO GL backup file into a Xero organisation, complete with Chart of Accounts and comparative annual balances.

We even send you pre-populated bank authority forms for your clients to sign and return directly to Xero, which makes moving from MYOB BankConnect for the new financial year a breeze.

To watch this in action, check out MYOB AO Export, then contact your local Xero Account Manager for assistance in getting set up to convert your AO GLs before 31 March.

Soon we are releasing Fixed Assets and Depreciation, to ensure that monthly management reports and annual accounts are accurate and up to date – an essential requirement for your clients in the current economic climate.

Stuart – great news – looks like a nice solution…. but just “backend” at this stage? Nothing for conversion of customer accounts yet?

Ben, this is a special service we are offering NZ accountants to help them quickly get their clients setup on Xero. The team have some other stuff in the pipeline to help with the conversion of business accounting software, so stay tuned.

Good news about FA and depreciation. A big plus versus the rest of the pack on and off-premise. Any plans for a simple investment ledger?

Hi Jim, yes we are looking at that. Bit down the priority list but we do understand the need.

Won’t Xero be the complete package once FA and Depreciation is up and running and the overnight conversion process will convert the entire MYOBAO GL and Asset Register to Xero. Tell me this will happen????

Yes, that’s right, and this is something we showed to over 600 accountants at our recent Future of Accounting roadshow around New Zealand. In association with Acclipse, we’ll provide a full replacement to MYOB Accountants Office by March 2010.
So now is a great time to get clients on Xero for the new financial year in New Zealand. The introduction of Fixed Assets and Depreciation last week means monthly Management Reports are now completely up to date and accurately reflect the current position of the business.
This creates a compelling opportunity for Accountants to support their business clients and assist in these times of economic uncertainty, something that is almost impossible in the isolated world of disconnected, out-dated desktop accounting.
