Founded in 1991, Myob has been providing businesses with a range of accounting, tax, and other business software to Australian businesses for many years. There’ve been quite a few mergers and acquisitions in the Myob group over the years, which some believe has caused their products offerings to drop in quality. If you think the same, maybe it’s time to cancel Myob and move on to another company.

Why do people cancel Myob
Once upon a time, Myob was the powerhouse company in the accounting and tax software industry. It’d be highly unlikely to find any tax agent or accountant not familiar with their service. Mainly because they were one of the first in the industry. All that’s gone with the introduction of many new competitors, but that hasn’t stopped them from trying to keep up with the times. It’s not enough for some, though, with many choosing to cancel their subscriptions to Myob for another software package.
One of the most popular reasons people pull the plug on Myob is that there is something better for them available. Most people aren’t loyal to software providers unless they’re receiving exceptional customer service. And with technology changing faster than ever and a consistent influx of new competitors, there are usually better deals always coming around.
Another reason people cancel is that they simply don’t use Myob anymore. No one’s going to be an accountant, business owner, or tax agent for their whole life, and when that time comes, there’s no point in paying for software that you aren’t using anymore.
This is almost the exact same reason many people cancel their memberships to Fitness First – they simply stop going to the gym and don’t have any justification for the monthly membership fee anymore.
Although Myob does provide a great range of software for tax agents and accountants, sometimes it just isn’t enough. And when that time comes for you, hopefully, the steps above will help you cancel your subscription in no time.
