File Interfaces

With file formats, data is imported via files (CSV, XML, etc.) into our DATEV apps or exported for other apps. The DATEV app offers a corresponding import or export dialog for this formats. Data exchange via files offers high flexibility but less comfort, as the user is responsible for the transport of the files between the apps involved. This becomes complex when the data has to be exchanged across companies (e.g. between companies and tax consultants). Regardless of whether a company works with the DATEV apps itself or the data is needed by the tax consultant: the file format is the flexible solution.

Do you have questions about the concept, implementation or would you like personal advice? We will be happy to help you.
