MYOB vs Odoo

There is no answer that could satisfy the question as it depends on your business scale and specific requirements. However, get to know the highlights/drawbacks of each platform would help you make the right decision towards choosing the best fit software for your business operation.

MYOB Essentials

MYOB Essentials is an online accounting solution providing tools for tax management, invoicing, payroll, expenses and reporting.

  • Easy to install and set up

  • Highly customisable for invoicing and parts inventories

  • Easy to use and friendly layout for the end user

  • Can be accessed from anywhere that has the Internet connection

  • Easy to export data into excel


  • In general, MYOB is a great option for small firms without complex needs and reporting requirements. When it comes to Work Breakdown Structure requirements, MYOB would become a limiter for the company.

  • Besides, limited customisation and slow response for real data volume (this speed problem might be caused by the Internet connection as well) are also listed as the drawbacks of this platform.
