MYOB Bank Feeds

MYOB bank feeds let you compare your bank account and credit card transactions with the information you have in AccountRight and easily add transactions. Information from your financial institution is sent straight to AccountRight

so you can sort out your banking and reconciliations quickly.

MYOB banks feeds are included with an AccountRight subscription and MYOB support many financial institutions in Australia and New Zealand, including banks, credit unions, and building societies.

There are two steps to setting up a MYOB bank feed:

  • Apply—Start the application process in AccountRight and choose your financial institution and the bank or credit card you want to set up the bank feed for. Some banks allow the application to be completed via internet banking, otherwise you’ll need to submit an application form as described below.
  • Link—Finish the process by choosing the AccountRight account you want to link the bank feed to.

What happens next?

MYOB Australia will notify you by email when your bank feed is ready, and you can also check the status by clicking Check/update status in the Manage Bank Accounts window. This may take a couple of weeks.

When your bank feed is ready, you’ll be able to download and approve transactions into your company file.

Note that the first bank feed you receive will have transactions dated from when your bank feed was approved. Any transactions that occurred while you were waiting for the bank feed to be set up won’t be included. If you want to import and reconcile transactions dated before your feed approval date, you can use the Get Statement feature.

This section explains the bank feeds management tasks you may need to perform after you’ve set up a bank feed, or when you no longer want to receive a bank feed.
