Learn how to import your trial balance into Kashoo by uploading a spreadsheet. This allows you to import your chart of accounts and opening balances so that you will not have to manually enter each one into your account.

Your debit and credit columns on your spreadsheet must be balanced in order for the file to be uploaded. 

Spreadsheet (Excel or CSV)

In order to successfully be able to import your trial balance into Kashoo using an excel document, please refer to the following instructions below. To help you out, we have a template already made for you which you download by clicking here.

Your headers should be in the order of:

  • First Column - Account Number (The number of that particular account, ex. 1000, 1001,1002).

  • Second Column - Account Name (Classification of Account, ex. Office Supplies, Operating Profit).

  • Third Column - Account Type (Income/Expense).

  • Fourth Column - Description (Put in any side notes to yourself).

  • Fifth Column - Debit (All debit balances).

  • Sixth Column - Credit (All credit balances).
