Linked Accounts (connecting the modules in AccountRight)
How do we ensure our accounting is right when we use MYOB AccountRight as 80% of users have no formal accounting training?
The answer to this boils down to MYOB’s famous linked accounts. When MYOB is first setup for a business, you ensure the correct general ledger accounts are selected as the linked accounts. This ensures that when a transaction is entered, the debit and/or credit sides are correct. View the linked accounts in your company file by selecting, Setup, Linked Accounts.
The linked accounts for sample company, Clearwater are pictured below:
Warning! The linked accounts are critical to the integrity of your general ledger. We suggest you don’t change them unless you know what you are doing. Having said that you can untick the options if you don’t need them. For example if you don’t pay charges for late payment then untick the box. Then you can delete the Late Fees Paid account from your accounts list.
