Institute of Certified NZ Bookkeepers


A new vision for the future of bookkeeping in New Zealand

It was great to meet everyone at the ICNZB Conference recently. The conference may be over, but that’s not where the journey ends.

At MYOB, we relish the opportunity to connect with bookkeepers and accountants to make sure our solutions meet the needs of modern businesspeople and their valued advisors. After all, we want what you want: to support and grow healthy, local businesses.

And as the only online accounting provider dedicated to Australia and New Zealand, we’re well positioned to deliver.

Welcome to MYOB – Home of The Connected Practice

You might have heard about our vision for The Connected Practice. It has driven everything we do in supply and partnering with bookkeepers and accountants.

This vision describes the coming together of three critical functions within a practice: transaction processing, compliance, and business advisory. Perhaps most importantly, it’s leveraging the power of automation tools in transaction processing and compliance to enable new income streams for practices in business advice.

To enable this vision in 2018, we’ve a few key developments you should know about.

MYOB Advisor – A tool for the 21st Century

Busy advisors know that it’s not always easy to find the time to delve into their clients’ books for opportunities to help them succeed.

And we want to prove that putting cutting-edge software in the hands of advisors only makes them better at their jobs.

That’s why we’ve released an AI tool that can be used in conjunction with MYOB Essentials or AccountRight to derive easy-to-understand insights from your clients’ online files.

MYOB Advisor can be used to highlight opportunities and risks to clients’ businesses in plain English, giving accountants and bookkeepers the tools to initiate advisory conversations with their clients.

Welcome to a brave new world in advice – combining AI and human expertise.
