How to import the invoices to match opening balance in Accounts payable

Started by Siddarth A -   in Accounting


Please advise me is there any possibilities to import invoices to match the opening balance in Accounts payable account. We have around 1000 invoices of nearly 100 suppliers outstanding at the end of the year. It is difficult to enter all the 1000 invoices in xero to match the opening figures. It will be helpful if we have option to import those invoice details. Please advise me in this regards. Many Thanks
Hello Siddarth,

It might be a good idea to import all your outstanding bills first into Xero before saving your conversion balances. You may refer on this article for further information.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for jumping in here, Kriesel.

@Siddarth - You can import your bills by going to Accounts > Purchases, where you'll see the Import button. Click this, and you'll see more info, including the download link for the template file, which'll guide you through this process. Let us know if you need more help!
