As the Australian economy becomes more plugged-in, logged-on and fired-up than ever, we want to give all small businesses digitising potentially for the first time the ability to mind their own business. That’s why we’re teaming up with MYOB to help Australian small businesses get the job done.

We know how busy it is running a business. You’ve got to handle everything. Your customers, your staff, suppliers to chase and invoices to handle. But we want to lend a hand with a one-stop shop for all your business tools and needs.

To help with that, our new suite of tools for Australian small- to medium-businesses (SMBs) launches today and includes a free three-month subscription to MYOB Essentials (normally valued at up to $180) for new and existing customers.

Combining your Telstra mobile and MYOB subscriptions on the same Telstra bill, simplifies administration and payments – allowing business owners more time to get on with what matters most.

Customers can choose any plan from the MYOB Essentials range on the Telstra website or in store to combine their billing, while still having access to MYOB’s ANZ-based support teams. The three-month free offer is valid with any $65+ Telstra month to month plan.

We’ve heard businesses asking for more help with their business apps, and accounting and payroll are key. Having the power to get paid quickly and easily helps ensure the continuity of your business.

It’s all part of our mission to help Australian businesses thrive in a new digital world. The pandemic has driven more shoppers online than ever, and paired with a desire to shop local, the digital economy is vibrant.
