A Common Ledger - What’s it all about?

It’s about building smarter connections with your clients. We’re making it even easier by providing new software solutions that work directly with your clients’ data located in the cloud – creating a Common Ledger between you and your clients

It’s made possible with two significant developments:

  • The next generation of MYOB AccountRight. In 2012, your clients using MYOB AccountRight will have the choice to add online services bringing together a rich desktop experience with online benefits including anywhere access, secure data back-up and so much more
  • New AE Client Accounting tools for accountants that access your clients’ AccountRight data directly from the cloud.  

We have just created the Common Ledger. It will eliminate time-wasting tasks including retrieving and rekeying data. Instead, you and your clients work from the same data source in real-time. It’s always available and it’s always up to date.

What will you do with the extra time? You might decide to offer valuable advisory services, take on additional clients or get the work/life balance you desire. 

Start Today

You don’t need to wait until 2012 to access the benefits of AE Client Accounting. The solution already works with client’s AccountRight data file located on your network or across the practice general ledger (MAS or Accounts). 

Acting now means you will streamline processes and enable you to embrace the Common Ledger in 2012. If your clients don’t immediately embrace the cloud benefits, you still enhance your practice processes with one set of applications for every job.

Start working smarter and get better results today.

AE Client Accounting makes it easier to connect with your clients. It is integrated within the AE suite based on the latest Microsoft technology. Representing excellent value, AE Client Accounting includes:

  • MAS or Accounts General Ledger
  • Statutory Reporter
  • Workpapers
  • Assets
  • Public Accountant Professional Partner Program

Eliminate the need to maintain a separate general ledger for your clients. Statutory Reporter is a component of the new MYOB AE Client Accounting solution.

Statutory Reporter creates financial statements directly from a client’s AccountRight data file. It’s designed to save you time on every job. Stop revising and start advising today.


Based on the data stored within the AccountRight file, Statutory Reporter allocates the majority of account codes and makes decisions on what notes to the account are appropriate. Any additional accounts are allocated quickly and easily using drag and drop.

Formatting financial statements can take a long time. Statutory Reporter makes the process quick by allowing you to reorder reports in seconds and edit text on-screen. Common tasks such as page numbering, watermarks and insertion of logos are just a click away.

The review process is fast and efficient with Statutory Reporter. Simply double click on any amount and see exactly what accounts make up the number. You can even reallocate accounts there and then.

Because Statutory Reporter is part of the AE suite, information such as company directors and addresses flow into financial statements without the need to re-key. Storing final copies in PDF is a mouse click away when used with MYOB AE Document Manager.
