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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

How to book revenues?
You’ve just sold a good or a service and your customer pays you. How can you book it?
The 2 possibilities are:
- Customer pays straight away in cash or by card.
- Customer receives an invoice and pays later.
We will use as an example “Jean’s shop”. Jean has a small second hand shop in Bern. She sells second hand goods and she also organizes small parties in her backyard for kids.
- Jean sells a dress for CHF 60.- to a customer the 13.10.2014.
- Jean organized a small birthday party for Susanna the 12.10.2014 and sent Susanna’s mother an invoice the 13.10.2014 for CHF 150.-. Jean put aside a copy of the invoice in her box “invoices not paid”.
21 days later, the 3.11.2014, Susanna’s mother send the money on Jean’s Post account. Jean takes the copy of the invoice and attach it behind the Postfinance account statement. She writes on both documents the booking number. With this she can find easily the invoice and the booking.
Book Invoice paid
- Number: Automatic number is fine.
- Date: the date the money is on your bank account.
- Debit: 1010-Postfinance account. The account where the money was sent. 1010 is an active account of the balance sheet, to increase it book the amount in the debit.
- Credit: 3400-Services Revenues. This is a revenue account from the income statement, thus to increase it, book the amount in the credit.
- Amount: the amount received by Jean.
- Description: A little description about the booking. It makes easier to find it later if needed. In the example, we wrote, which invoice Susanna’s mother paid and what the invoice was about.
- T-View: You can quickly view with the colors that the Postfinance account increases and the Services revenues increases too. This is what we want. Susanna’s mother paid the invoice.
- “Book” button: Book it.
