You can enter account information in accounting and ERP packages manually, or you can import account information. If you want to import account information, you simply need to sign up to the module Download bank files and ask your bank to send the account information as report files (CODA, MT94x or CAMT).You can start this request via Isabel.eu/manage (Add/remove an account or a bank).

If you have a compatible accounting or ERP package you can also use Isabel Go. With Isabel Go – the Isabel button in your accounting package – you can send and receive payments and account information directly to and from your banks.
