I just downloaded a program called "Accounts" as I, too am looking for mac bus. software. According to the documentation:
"Accounts is a double-entry accounting program for small businesses and personal finances for Mac OS X.
Keep track of your business transactions, or just balance your checkbook using the payments, receipts and general journals. Accounts produces Profit and Loss, Balance Sheet, and Trial Balance reports based on your transaction information.
Accounts allows you to reconcile your accounts, and easily see all transactions affecting each of your accounts. Accounts also lets you keep track of your contacts and memos. Small businesses can use Accounts to record business receipts and expenses and produce simple invoices."
I could not find the upgrade for MYOB Canadian version, any where on the web, it is a company that is based in Australia, and does not offer a Canadian version, so I went to MYOB US site, and tried to send an e-mail to customer support, but instead of being able to send a simple e-mail, it keeps bouncing me from page to page, of what seems to me questions that where asked and answered, and I could not find answer's to my question, since I am use to dealing with people at the top, I sent an e-mail directly to the president of MYOB, and made it clear, that I could not send a simple e-mail to support, so I wrote her, and asked that something be done in the upgrade procedure or I would simply move on to a competitors software, either my e-mail will be ignored, or I will get the information needed.
I will keep you up dated on the follow up if there is one, if not, I will write MacWorld for some advice, on small business software for the Mac.

MYOB Canada sold off their interests to Intuit Canada 3 years ago. There is no more MYOB software available for the Canandian market.
I used to work with someone who went to MYOB Canada, then went to MYOB Australia. She's now back in Canada and we had a long discussion recently about accounting options for the Mac. There is QuickBooks for Mac, which I understand to be more or less MYOB before AccountEdge. She did inform me that there was no feasible way to use either the US or Australian versions of MYOB (No GST support) and that neither company would be willing to ship to a Canadian address.
Connected this was the product that she was involved with when we worked together (at EveryWare). Not much appears to have been done to upgrade it over the years and it is more designed for the multiuser.
MultiLedger which looks pretty good but I've got a copy of QuickBooks Mac and there wasn't enough in MultiLedger that convinced me to switch.
Right now, I'm going to stay with QuickBooks for Mac. One suggestion I have, if you deal with an accountant or bookeeper for your yearly statements, you might want to ask them what to recommend.
As I see it, this is one of the biggest obstacles in convincing Windows users to switch. I do know that there are a lot of Mac shops that will use either Simply (no Mac version), or QuickBooks Windows (much fresher program in my opinion) running on either a single windows machine or under Virtual PC.
BTW, MYOB in the US is a fantastic program, I've downloaded the trial version and it has fully cross platform compatibility with it's Windows counterpart so if you are running a mixed platform shop, you can have licenses for both and both can talk to the same data files. With QuickBooks, you need to convert the file each time you want to change platforms so it is okay for a once in a while move, but not for a mixed platform shop.
