MYOB has released the 2009 version of its MYOB Premier Accounting software, with extra payroll, security, search, print and spell check features for small businesses.

Customers can now save paycheck details from prior years in their current company file for quicker access, removing the need to restore data from a backup. New security features give users the ability to restrict access to sensitive customer information located in a customer's contact card. The program also meets PCI Data Security Standard requirements by only allowing the final four digits of a credit card number to be displayed within the software.

Premier Accounting users can now set up unique user IDs for all employees who access the software, and then restrict those IDs from accessing employee profiles, employee payment details, employee payroll details or all employee cards.

When searching for data in Premier Accounting, users can now search by field type, including first name, last name, company name, phone number, e-mail address and more. Only the results that match the search terms will be displayed. Users can now preview sales, purchases, checks and other forms prior to printing by choosing the preview option from the print button, to make sure the output will print properly before wasting resources.

Users can also set up the application to automatically check spelling, or they can manually check spelling by clicking the spell check option when recording an invoice or purchase, or completing the set-up of a new item.

Other new features include improved filter settings on customized reports, enhanced transaction editing, more flexible invoice statements, and 2009 W-2 and W-3 forms.

The software costs $299 for new users and $159 for upgrades. For more information, visit
