Table of contents

Thanks to today's technological advances, companies can solve their accounting more efficiently than ever, in particular through an invoicing program with a DATEV interface. But what exactly is behind this interface and why is it so important?

In this blog post, we will show you the challenges of manually booking documents and why a connection to DATEV is a great advantage.

What is a DATEV interface?

A DATEV interface is a connection between software and the DATEV system. DATEV (data processing for tax and auditing) offers services for tax consultants, auditors and companies in Germany.

With an invoicing program with an integrated DATEV interface, you are taking a step towards digitization.

The interface enables smooth integration and exchange of data such as booking records and payslips for tax and accounting purposes.

How does a DATEV interface work?

The way a DATEV interface works is quite simple. It enables bidirectional communication between a software application and the DATEV system.

Thanks to the interface, manual export and import are no longer necessary. Using the DATEVconnect interface, all information is transferred from the accounting software to the DATEV software in the correct format.

Why is an accounting software with DATEV interface important?

An invoicing program with DATEV interface allows companies to automatically transfer invoices and payslips to the accounting department and thus communicate seamlessly with their tax office.

Accounting software with DATEV interface reduces your paper consumption and ensures fewer manual errors due to automation.

DATEV itself is not an accounting program, but an accounting program. It enables digital bookkeeping. Through the interface to other software solutions, invoicing and bookkeeping are linked together. Instead of manually transferring data, the DATEV interface automates this process.

Challenges: Sending documents back and forth manually was a thing of the past

One of the biggest challenges that companies must overcome without such a DATEV interface is the manual exchange of documents. If companies create their invoices manually using an Excel or Word template, they must then be converted into DATEV format.

Each individual outgoing invoice must be converted in accounting and posted to the corresponding account. This creates an enormous administrative burden. Folders must be sent back and forth, which also affects data protection.

The manual booking of invoices also entails the risk that Mistakes occur. In contrast to suitable accounting software with DATEV interface, manual accounting does not guarantee perfect data consistency.

The benefits of accounting software with DATEV interface

Modern accounting software with a DATEV interface offers numerous advantages for companies and tax consultants:

  • Save time through automated workflows: Automating routine tasks such as invoicing, bookkeeping and reporting makes it possible to save time and focus on strategic tasks. Tips for good software to write invoices digitally, can be found elsewhere.
  • Secure data transfer that minimizes potential risks: The DATEV interface ensures a secure exchange of sensitive financial data between accounting software and the DATEV system, which minimizes the risk of data loss or manipulation.
  • Eliminate the need for pendulum folders: The digitization of receipts and documents makes physical commuting folders superfluous, which drastically reduces administrative costs.
  • Efficient accounting and reminders thanks to automation: An automatic invoicing and reminder system ensures that payment processes run smoothly.
  • Direct transfer of data: The direct transfer of data between accounting software and the DATEV system minimizes the possibility of human errors and ensures a high level of data integrity.
  • Seamless communication with the tax office: The DATEV interface enables seamless communication and efficient cooperation between companies and tax offices.
