Hi,

Payhawk has direct integration to Datev Cloud Services, using the Rechnungsdatenservice 1.0 allowing us to effortlessly export expenses to Datev.

By connecting to your Datev account, you will allow Payhawk to export expenses directly into your Datev import folder.

To connect to Datev, you need to follow a few simple steps:

  • Go to Settings -> Integrations

  • Select the Datev integration


Before connecting, make sure that your tax adviser has enabled your MyDatev client to use Rechnungsdatenservice 1.0.

Here's a short guide that can help you enable Datev Cloud Services.


  • Payhawk will enable and define your VAT rates using Datev BU codes.

  • Finally, Datev does not allow you to directly pull your Categories, and KOST1, and KOST2, so they have to be inputted by the administrator of the account before you can start exporting expenses.

Check out how to map your categories and KOST1 and KOST2 fields.
