MYOB Exo Employer Services

End of Support Notification

If you’ve found this post on Google or LinkedIn, chances are you received the email from MYOB stating that as of 1st January 2024, they will end support for issues arising from use of unsupported operating systems. As per the latest systems guidelines document, MYOB not offer support for issues that arise due to unsupported operating systems.

So what does this all mean for you and your business? And most importantly, what pre-emptive steps you should take.

Did You Get The End of Support Email?

It’s OK – there’s plenty of time left

As part of MYOB’s ongoing security and quality commitments, from 1 January 2024, they will no longer provide support for Windows operating systems that are not supported by Microsoft. Whilst this may come as somewhat of a surprise, this is all part of the life cycle of a product. The first point is that yes, you will have have to update your system. At BusinessHub, we understand that updating systems for any business can have a huge impact.

Thankfully, you have plenty of time to prepare to get everything in order by the 31st December 2023.

What should you do?

If you currently use MYOB Exo Employer Services with a operating system that will become unsupported by the end of the year, we recommend upgrading to a later Microsoft operating system prior to this date, at the very minimum.
