Australian Taxation Office for payments made after
THIS UPDATE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH
MYOB Accounting Plus v14 THROUGH TO CURRENT
THE TAX TABLE UPDATE IS NOT COMPATABLE WITH
MYOB PREMIER v8 THROUGH TO CURRENT
most MYOB users would be aware, in order to obtain the
update Tax Tables from MYOB users
must pay an annual subscription to "MYOB Cover". MYOB package the
support subscription with the current version of their software, which
is available directly from MYOB for $799.00 or from retail outlets.
for those that only require the Tax Tables without support there is no
alternative to the full package.
announced in January 2007 it will no longer support any version of it's
software which are now more than 2 versions preceeding the current
version, a further announcement in January 2008 added to
the deleted support list any version older than 3 years old.
to MYOB Cover in effect results in an upgrade to the current version
of the software, which may not suit all users of the software. Some
users, like me, are quite happy with the older versions and aside from
Tax Table support happily
have no ongoing need for the support packages nor the newer upgraded
versions of the software. I personally, had never contacted MYOB
13 is the last version of MYOB which contains a text file based Tax
Table which is user amendable. As such my updated Tax Table
files will only
Accounting Plus v13 or older, and Premier v7 or older along with 2003 ver Mac Accounting Edge .
(ie Versions 14 and 8 respectively through to current will not benefit from this update)
A reversion to Version 13+ or Premier v7 will enable the use
of this Tax Table update.
Accounting Plus Version 14 onwards, MYOB have written the Tax Table file in a coded
format which serves to frustrate any efforts to manually update it,
along with I imagine setting up a claim of copywrite over the
contents. With over 700,000 businesses world wide using MYOB and
requiring the Tax Table updates in it's accompanying Support Package .... a
very clever move that creates a multi million dollar income stream.
software has without doubt developed into an impressive and
sophisticated stable of programs, and the current versions encompasses some very
impressive and dazzling functions and options if you have a business
that can utilise that sophistication. Many users have no use for any
more than that basics that is provided by what their
offer. Some users are just happy to stick with what they know and what
I downloaded and test drove the Accounting Plus Version 17 (demo) and from
of my own needs I found it basically the same in looks and function as
Accounting Plus Version 13 with no additional features that would be of much use to me.
tax table file within MYOB has to comply with the Tax Office figures
and has to contain those figures exactly as released. The MYOB file in
Version 13 and older is
relatively easy to update manually with a text editor from the figures
published by the Australian Tax Office.
updating I do to the file is not overly complex nor is there any secret special
computer nerd magic, or fairy dust, it is merely time consuming. Updating is not only
easily possible, with a little knowledge, patience and drive it can be
achieved by mostly anybody. The $52.00
I charge for the updated file
would equate to couple or hours of time for someone to
manually do it
update the file for my own use as the need arises, and because there is
no other option for users not wishing to upgrade, I'm offering
my updated tax table file for $52.00 to anyone who wants it.
I've amended the file over the years for my own personal use, which is
still the case. The file was never amended singularly for the purpose
tested the update in a coupe of older Accounting Plus Versions which has worked fine. Previous version MYOB files are
basically identical in format to the tax file in MYOB Acounting Plus Ver 13.
Although I havent checked other MYOB products which
contain a payrole module such as Premier, the Tax Table update works in
Premier v7 or older. I also have the Mac compatible Tax Table
update for Accounting Edge of the same year, 2003.
have only adjusted the table applicable for my own use, which is
limited to the 8 general tables as listed below simply because I dont
require the additional tables.
|No tax free
|Tax free threshold
with leave loading
|No TFN resident
|No TFN non resident
|Tax free threshold
no leave loading
purchasing the file you acknowledge and accept that I offer the file
without any warranty or claim, athough I'm happy to discuss issues and
offer suggestions if I can.

and they are written for people with only basic computer knowledge. I
copy of the applicable sections of Tax Office table along with instructions on how to check the
for your own peace of mind prior to use.
actual changes are made the MYOB software as such. The changes made
relate only to the Tax Table figures MYOB calls upon to calculate PAYG
important point to mention is that by
following the simple intructions, the changes made by using the updated
Tax Table are not permanent and are completely reversible at any time.
When reading the instructions I have included explanations to describe
the processes to alleviate any possible fear and
do suggest you follow these instructions to double check the figures
against a tax table for your own peace of mind. I may be able to
provide limited other tax categories.
I'm also interested in obtaining or
purchasing original copies of Version 13+ or older for redistribution
with the current Tax Tables. If you have any copies, please let me
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
The update was written specifically for the Windows release of Accounting Plus Version 13
(my version). It does work in older versions of Accounting Plus, along
with MYOB Premier and Mac Accounting Edge released in 2003. It
does also work in other MYOB products released before 2004, please note
my aim is simply to cost effectively keep my own Version 13 upto date
and not provide broad ranging support accross the entire range of MYOB
