Frequently asked questions

  • Is it safe to connect my bank account to QuickBooks?
    QuickBooks uses the same grade of data encryption as your online banking. In order to connect your bank account to QuickBooks you’ll need to authorise this using your banks security credentials so you can be confident we’ve got you covered.
  • What types of information can I import into QuickBooks?
    QuickBooks allows you to import bank statements directly from your bank. You can also import CSV files containing sales and purchase invoices containing VAT and multiple currencies, customers, suppliers, products and services that you sell and your chart of accounts.
  • Does the data need to be in a specific format?
    Bank statement data can be in CSV, QFX, QBO or OFX format. Most online banking platforms allow you to download statement data in CSV format. Other data imported into QuickBooks must be in CSV format. For the fastest, smoothest experience we recommend you use the templates provided in QuickBooks.
  • What is bridging software?
    Bridging software is a term coined by HMRC to describe software that enables a taxpayer to import their excel spreadsheet based VAT data into other software from which they can file their VAT return. Bridging software makes it easier to comply with Making Tax Digital if you’re currently working from an excel spreadsheet and struggling to completely move to accounting software in time for the April 1st deadline.
