The MYOB Story

MYOB Today

When MYOB started out in 1991 from a home office we had one big idea - to create affordable tools that made business life easier.

We're big now, but our focus on supporting businesses (big and small) remains the same:

  • We know it takes guts to start and run a business.
  • Your work’s important but so is life.
  • That’s why we focus on making business life easier, leaving you to do what you do best.

Love your work

We now help approximately 1.2 million Australian and New Zealand businesses do so via our 50+ products and services and our network of over 40,000 accountants, bookkeepers and other professional partners.

We’re proud to be Australia’s largest business management solutions provider. We recognise one size does not fit all so we offer products ranging from a simple bank feeds service, MYOB Banklink, to our cloud accounting product suites, MYOB Essentials and MYOB AccountRight, through to enterprise software for more complex businesses, MYOB Exo Business.

Did you know two in three Australian businesses use accounting software and of these around 60% use MYOB?
Did you know that around 70% of accountants use MYOB?

You’re in good company.

Where we began: one small business with one big idea.

Our very first product was revolutionary. No one had ever made accounting so easy for non-accountants. We were the first to successfully use Windows to achieve this. The launch of the original MYOB product helped start-ups and small businesses to:

  • Be more productive
  • Be more competitive
  • Save time and money

Now, MYOB has grown into a large company that offers a wide range of desktop and cloud-based business management solutions, from the simple to the feature-rich.

We might be bigger but we remember our origins. We remember what it’s like to work around the clock to build your business and develop your team. We know where you’re coming from.

Awarded Australian Business of the Year

When MYOB took home the Telstra Australian Business of the Year Award in 1996, we realised we were onto something big. Our affordable, friendly solutions were definitely making a difference to the lives of business owners everywhere.

They still are – we now help approximately 1.2 million business owners across Australia and New Zealand. MYOB has made a clear choice to concentrate on our home turf. International expansion isn’t on our priority list. You are.
