Making the Most of MYOB

Accounting software may not be the sexiest technology gear around, but it's a necessity for many businesses. Making the Most of MYOB provides a useful resource for people trying to come to grips with the system used by many of Australia's small and medium concerns.

The book covers various MYOB products including MYOB FirstAccounts v3.5, MYOB Accounting v12, MYOB Accounting Plus v12, MYOB Premier v6 and MYOB AccountEdge v2.

Making the Most of MYOB scores particularly well on two areas: it has a relatively low cost for a technology book, and a good deal of effort has been taken to make it easy to navigate. Following the contents, for example, there's a long list of typical questions organised by topic (GST and invoicing, setting up suppliers, and so on) that should help you get to the information you need (there's an index as well). Readers may also appreciate icons to designate advanced tips, GST tips, classic mistakes and golden rules (fundamental concepts).

Overall, the approach is to ease the reader into using the software and allay anxiety - so there's a good deal of handholding (the author also wrote MYOB for Dummies). Now, if only the taxman was so helpful.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
