Importing ledger accounts

You can import ledger accounts in order to complete an existing chart of accounts and therefore avoid manual data entry in the application.

To import your ledger accounts, first download the import template. This template shares important information and presents the only valid file structure for a successful import.

If you want to import data retrieved from an accounting or business management application, make sure that this data respects the structure of the import template.
