You will not be able to use MYOB software to do your payroll
after December 31st, 2002. Why? And what’s the alternative?

Dear Mr. Customer,

As you are probably aware, Intuit Canada took over the Canadian operations of MYOB in 2001. Since that time, we have been analyzing the potential of both our product lines to determine how to provide the most value to our small business customers as we move forward.

In order to deliver the best possible product, services and support to all of our customers, we’ve decided to focus our time and energy on one line of small business accounting software – QuickBooks. Therefore, after this year, we will no longer be producing tax tables for MYOB AccountEdge software.

We completely understand that changing to a new way of doing things can be an inconvenience. However, we are trying to make this change as easy as possible. To assist you in completing payroll for your employees, we have negotiated a special offer on your behalf with ADP. ADP is Canada’s leading provider of payroll and related services, and has solutions to suit the needs of businesses of all sizes.
