DATEV Unternehmen online: account for Invoice payments

When you are using Pleo Invoices with our DATEV Unternehmen online integration, we recommend that you set up a Contra account for the Invoice payments.

Why do I need a new account?

  • When paying an invoice, the amount will be credited on the Pleo Wallet account and should be debited on the supplier account where you have the outstanding debt from the invoice.

  • Unless a specific supplier account has been added to an invoice, we use this account as the default account for exporting the payment.

  • We therefore recommend that you use a transitory account in our set-up.

  • If you or your accountant chose to leave this default account number empty, the payment will be exported without a contra account if the specific supplier account is missing. This can lead to an error message in DATEV Kanzlei-Rechnungswesen. Your accountant has the option of correcting the booking record manually.

How to set it up:

  • Please ask your accountant/DATEV administrator which account number you should use and insert in Pleo for the Invoice payments account. We recommend depending on your accounting setup:

    • a) A transitory account, e.g. 1360 Geldtransit (SKR 03) or 1460 Geldtransit (SKR 04)

    • b) An account for diverse creditors "Sammelkreditorn", between 70000 and 90000 (SKR 03 & SKR 04)

  • The account needs to be assigned/created in DATEV Kanzlei Rechnungswesen.

  • You do not need to create a new Kassenbuch for this account in DATEV Unternehmen online! The payment will be exported in the existing Kassenbuch you use for the Pleo Wallet.
