Dinner & drinks:


MYOB is a sponsor of this event, they will be hosting the dinner and drinks on Thursday 11 April at their offices.

MYOB NZ started out in 1992 from a home office in Auckland with one big idea - to create affordable tools that made business life easier.

They’re big now, but their focus on supporting businesses (big and small) remains the same:

  • It takes guts to start and run a business.
  • Your work’s important but so is life.
  • They focus on making business life easier, leaving you to do what you do best.

MYOB has helped many New Zealand businesses over the years, via 50+ products and services as well as an extensive, committed network of business mentors and accountants.

MYOB is proud to be a leading provider of business management solutions in New Zealand and Australia and recognise that one size doesn’t fit all.

  • MYOB helps approximately 1.2 million businesses and over 40,000 accountants and other professional partners across New Zealand and Australia.
  • Approximately three in four New Zealand businesses use accounting software and of these around 60% use MYOB.
  • Each year, around 2 million electronic tax returns are submitted via an MYOB solution to the Inland Revenue – 80% of all returns.
  • Today, MYOB invests over $40 million in R&D each year.
