Adding a company to Fathom from MYOB AccountRight

To import data from MYOB AccountRight, you will need to download and install the Fathom Desktop Connector. After installation, you will be able to upload data from your MYOB files into Fathom.

The Fathom Desktop Connector will work with the three most recent versions of MYOB AccountRight. In cases where we do not integrate directly, we suggest using Excel to import your data.

Installing the Fathom Desktop Connector

To import data from a MYOB file (.myo or .myox), please download and install the Desktop Connector. After installation, you will be able to extract and upload data from your MYOB files. For system requirements and other information please see our article on the Fathom Desktop Connector.

To install the Fathom Desktop Connector:

  1. From the Fathom ‘My Companies’ page, select the green ‘Add’ button in the upper right corner.

  2. Choose ‘Company’

  3. Then, select ‘MYOB’

  4. In the following screen, under the heading 'MYOB Desktop' click 'Launch the Fathom Desktop Connector'.

  5. Open the Fathom Desktop Connector to launch it.

    Note: The Desktop Connector must be located on the same machine as the MYOB AccountRight file.

  6. The Desktop Connector will ask you to enter your Fathom credentials.

  7. Once you’ve entered your Fathom credentials, select the Fathom organization you want to import the MYOB AccountRight file into, if you have access to multiple Fathom organizations.

Connecting Fathom to your MYOB AccountRight file

After launching the Desktop Connector, follow these steps to import your company data into Fathom:

  2. Ensure it is the only company file open in MYOB AccountRight.

  4. You should see your MYOB file listed in the Fathom Desktop Connector. Select ‘Upload to Fathom’.

The connector will securely extract the financial statement data for all periods within the MYOB file. This includes data for the prior, current, and future financial years.

After the file is uploaded to Fathom, you’ll be prompted with a message to take you to your ‘My Companies’ page in Fathom. You should see the company listed on the ‘My Companies’ page where you’ll be able to access the settings, analysis, reports, and forecasting tools.
