Frequently Asked Questions


Before you begin


Before you start connecting your MYOB account to Kounta, you'll want to make sure your MYOB AccountRight account set up - you may need to double check this with your Accountant, or Bookkeeper.

From here you can then you'll need to enable the MYOB AccountRight integration. We wrote a guide to help you enable this integration and to sync your Takings and Account Sales data.

Finally, you'll also need to be on the Kounta Purchase Advanced plan.


Setting up Purchase Orders


1. To begin setting up your Purchase Orders select the Manage tab.

2. Check the box next to For each purchase order in Kounta, create a Bill in MYOB AccountRight.



3. Once enabled, you will now see options for mapping your account for your Purchase Orders - this is very similar to mapping Default Accounts for takings and accounts sales (which is covered in our guide on how to Integrate your MYOB AccountRight Live with Kounta).

Use the drop-down arrows on the right side to select which account should receive the cost associated with received purchase orders. Then, scroll down and map your taxes to their MYOB AccountRight Live equivalents.

Based on Sales type




Map Expenses Tax Codes

Once the Purchase Account has been mapped, you will need to then select the MYOB Tax Type mapping for your Kounta tax codes - you can find out more about adding and managing your taxes in your Kounta Account here.


The Integration will give you the recommended tax codes from your MYOB Accounting Program for these tax types. If you don't see the option here but you use this Tax Type in Kounta, you will need to create the corresponding tax code in MYOB.



As purchase orders are marked as received in Kounta, they will export across to MYOB.

For further details on how Kounta handles purchase orders, see our guide on Inventory Management with Kounta.


Note - Once the above mapping has been completed, select Save 




Frequently Asked Questions


Do I have to pay anything extra for MYOB integration?

No. Certain integrations are only available on certain plans - this purchase data sync is only included under the Kounta Purchase Advanced plan, however, if you decide to integrate your Kounta with MYOB, you’ll have to subscribe to their services as well as ours.


Where does my data go in MYOB?

Glad you asked. We have a guide called Where does my data export? which goes into a little more detail on this subject. Make sure to check that out!


I'm not in Australia or New Zealand - can I still Integrate my Kounta to MYOB?

Honestly, this will depend on where exactly you are. First, you should check that you are in a Kounta supported region. Then, you can reach out to our 24-Hour Support Team to confirm that your integration will work.


How does Kounta Sync my Suppliers to my MYOB AccountRight Live?

We simply match the Kounta supplier Name to MYOB's Customer Name for unique identification.


How do I sync purchase orders with MYOB Essentials?

The MYOB Essentials plan does not currently support this feature.


What's my next step?


Purchase data is just one of three main data points that the accounting integration syncs between MYOB AccountRight Live and Kounta - once the integration is enabled. In case you haven't already, make sure to check out our guide on enabling the MYOB AccountRight Live integration and syncing Takings data & Account Sales data.
