Having looked in to it a bit further I think they will sit in the intangibles account and be treat as a Fixed asset. In my current system it is treated as a “goodwill” asset, i just want to be sure that this is correct before adding in the balance.
Thanks to this forum, I was able to problem solve my aba file upload issue. how do i download it or can you send me the links to do so please. If this doesn’t work for you, we will need you to use an alternative browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to download your .aba files until a fix has been implemented.” Can you please give some information regarding which bank you are exporting for, so if someone does the same thing for that bank they may be able to help. I’ve been through all the solution steps Xero Customer Care has recommended and I’m still unable to export a batch file. “Xero” and “Beautiful business” are trademarks of Xero Limited. I shall treat it as other income for now and will make a note to review with my accountant.
Plus, your clients will all be able to participate in real-time accounting. Next step – multiple ways to actually code that bank data. Now you’ve got a clean slate to start over from – use the old Excel trick of multiplying by -1 to flip the sign, and then import again. This does work but whereas the .ofx file shows the bank balances the .CSV import does not and I can’t work out how to solve this. I have successfully imported an .ofx bank statement from Barclays but I need to import 4 months of statements prior to that which I was going to do by creating .CSV files. Santander online accepts .txt which is all i have ever used for batch payments – except XERO payroll Bacs file format is not accepted because its a format i have never seen before. Its the format that is the issue for me – not the type of file.

Also, errors occasionally pop up if you do a download in the middle of the day. For instance, if you initially import one file at noon on Tuesday and then later select Tuesday again, you may end up with duplicates in the file. This is more likely when using a .csv import – Xero is very good at picking up duplicates in the .ofx and the other file types. After you have the .csv import file set up, you can go to Xero and import it. For this file format, Xero gives you an extra screen where the mapping actually takes place – this is where you can select additional fields such as reference, description, and others. These extra details are often very useful when reconciling an account with multiple card holders, for example. It’s usually worth the extra effort to set these files up and then import.

To my knowledge this doesn’t work with Transferwise or any other banking system. If you don’t have a Bacs Service User Number , you can still download Bacs payment files to submit to Telleroo.

We believe “Pay with Transferwise” is a great self-directed option for smaller businesses paying less than 15 suppliers per month. Telleroo is great and the best option if you have more suppliers to pay. We wouldn’t recommend Bacs unless you have 1000 or more supplier payments to make and you want to save on bank fees.
