Miles Townsend Pty Ltd is a MYOB connected Accounting Practice and authorised reseller of the full range of MYOB products. We have extensive experience with MYOB Desktop applications and the new MYOB live cloud solution. MYOB's stand-alone functionality is arguably the most compressive of any Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) record keeping solution on the market. However, the downside to MYOB's features is usability, which does take time and training to understand.

Miles Townsend has developed a direct integration between MYOB and our accounting software (Handisoft) which reduces time in preparing clients year end accounts and ultimately results in lower compliance costs for our clients. Many Accountant's manually process data between MYOB and their system, which is not only time consuming and inefficient but can lead to inadvertent errors. Our system eliminates these issues.

If you are not quite ready to move to a cloud based system, but may be in the future then MYOB is the solution for you.

If you are currently using MYOB in your business and wish to extract the maximum for your investment, reduce your processing time or simply ask a question you can email through our contact page or give us a call.
