Update 24.02.2015 – Import bank account statements

We are delighted to announce that it is now possible to importat your bank account statement directly in EZYcount:

  1. What does it mean?: One of the most time consuming work for a small company is booking the bank account statement at the end of the day, week or month. On top of it, if a typing mistake on the amount happen, it could take a long time and a lot of frustration to find it out!
    With the bank account statement importation, you download from your e-banking the bank statement. Import it in EZYcount. All the bookings are pre-filled and you only need to input the offset account (and the VAT if the offset account requires VAT). Check out some pictures at the bottom of this news.
  2. How can I use it?: Nothing easier than this. Go in your ebanking, download the MT940 file, which is your electronic bank statement and import it in EZYcount. Finish the bookings in a couple of minutes by choosing the offset accounts.
    If you cannot download the MT940 file, check our support website or contact your bank ebanking. The MT940 bank account statement delivery is free in all major Swiss banks. Stay updated on our support website to see how to do it by each major bank. Once you asked for the MT940, you will be able to download yourself the file from your ebanking.
  3. Can I do this with all my accounts?: Sure you can! Currently you can do it with the MT940 from Credit Suisse and Banque Cantonale du Valais. If you work with another bank, contact us and we will include your MT940 in the importation. We are currently working on the Camt053 of Postfinance. Keep updated to know when this is done.
