Import bankstatements

The import feature works the same way with all files. Proceed as follows.

How to import files

Download the file from your banking institution. If you don't know how to do this in your online banking system, please contact your financial institute directly. With PostFinance, for example, you must request the option first before it can be activated.


Uploading files

Select Add/Bookings in the journal. Then select the file and choose the target account. Confirm by clicking on "Next".

The file opens in a new import tab which remains open, even after you have logged out. After a brief moment, all movements are displayed as a list.

Important: These have not yet been imported into the accounting system. This happens later on. You can import all or only selected bookings.

CashCtrl highlights recognized bookings and information in green. With every new file and every allocation, the software can better assign and automatically recognize customers, notes, or regularities. For example, if a customer makes a transfer without indicating their invoice number, CashCtrl can still ascribe the transfer using the name, date, etc.

Processing bookings

Clicking on "Process" opens the processing dialog. On the left, you will see the raw data that has been read out from the bank file. On the right, you will see the missing information. The description field also serves as the search field for all information. On the bottom left, you can see how many bookings the file contains.

Important: The sequence numbers are not yet generated in the import window. CashCtrl cannot assign these yet, as the booking hasn't been imported. Once the bookings have been imported, the sequence numbers will be generated. Leave this field empty.

All confirmed bookings are marked in green and can be imported into the accounting system by clicking on "Import confirmed bookings". Now the bookings will be imported into the accounting system.

Imported bookings in the journal

In the journal, imported bookings are marked with a blue dot. Payments for a document are displayed with an invoice icon and a dot.

Important note: The balance (right column in the screenshots) is always red in the example shown here because this is a demo camt file with a different balance.
