  • How to link your bank account(s) via Codabox (BE only)


    CodaBox is a service for accountants (and entrepreneurs) that makes your bank transactions available online. (Digital bank transactions are also called CODA files, hence the name CodaBox). To make your digital bank transactions available you need to give CodaBox a mandate first to request them from your bank. If you create a CodaBox account yourself, you need to ask for this directly with CodaBox. A lot of accountants already have a mandate from their customers to request these digital bank transactions. Make sure to check with your accountant first whether that is the case for your business. If it isn't, you can ask your accountant to take care of this or create your own Codabox account. Codabox requires a one-time set-up fee and a fixed amount per month to keep receiving your digital bank transactions.

    Did you get the mandate in order with your accountant? Then you can request a token to import your CODA files into Billit.

    To do this, click on the 'Integrations' submenu in the 'Settings' menu. Now click on the 'CodaBox' tile and on 'Request token'. Once the mandate has been signed with your accountant and your email address and bank account numbers are known to CodaBox, you will receive an email containing a token that you can enter in the field provided. Accept the terms and conditions and click 'Save' to import your bank statements via CodaBox into Billit. Not receiving a token? Then contact your accountant to set up the mandate for CodaBox.
