Registering and Activating Your MYOB

This post is about:
  1. Registering your MYOB
  2. Activating your MYOB
  3. Confirming your MYOB licenses

Registering MYOB

As soon as you receive your MYOB software CD installer, install it at once and register it online. Though you can also register it through your reseller or by fax, registering it online is the easiest. Registration is necessary before you can activate your company data file. It takes time before you can activate your company data file. You cannot activate it on the same day you registered your MYOB. The MYOB software itself will guide you how to register.

If you wish to register through your reseller, make sure that your MYOB CD has a registration card. If none, you can ask from your reseller. If you want it sent via email, request a pdf or jpeg copy.

Activating MYOB

You have 30 days to use your MYOB unless you activate it. While you have not activated it, it keeps on reminding you to activate it. To activate it online is the easiest and most convenient. You can also activate it by phone.

Enabling Your License

Enabling your license and additional licenses online is the easiest way to do it. You can also enable your licenses by phone, from which a recorded voice will give you the confirmation code that you have to enter in the license window. In case you purchased a multi-user version of MYOB Premier with additional sub-licenses, your MYOB reseller may require you to register the software through them. Just make sure that you give them the correct company code. The company code is automatically generated by MYOB.

If the Company Code didn't match the Confirmation Code

Each time you enable your license online, it generates the next company code. If the confirmation code provided by your reseller does not match the company code generated by MYOB, you can disregard the confirmation code and opt to enable your licenses online. You only need a confirmation code if you need to enable your licenses by phone or through a reseller. In some cases, your reseller wants to control the registration of your MYOB. That means even if you enable your licenses online, your MYOB remains a single user. You will need to wait until your reseller gives you the confirmation code.
