Connecting to Exact Online

To start connecting your Payhawk account to Exact Online, follow the steps:

  1. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Integrations.

  2. Under Available integrations, find Exact Online and click on Connect.

  3. On the next screen, click Continue.

  4. Select to which environment you want to connect. Payhawk integrates to all Exact Online environments.

  5. After you've granted Payhawk access to Exact Online, select the company to which you want to connect.

  6. In the Map accounts dialog, set up the following configurations:

    • Select which purchase journal you'd want to use.

    • Select a bank journal for each Payhawk bank account.

    • Select which account will be used for FX & ATM Fees.

    Note that Payhawk creates a Payhawk General account, which is used whenever mapping cannot be performed.

Exporting expenses in a currency other than the base one requires you to enable the Variable: Currency multi-currency feature for the purchase journal that was selected during the setup of the integration.

Notes on configuration

  • The integration setup from the last time Payhawk and your accounting system were connected will be automatically re-applied the next time you connect.

  • You can edit the current integration setup without disconnecting from your accounting system. In Payhawk, go to Settings > Integrations, click on the three dots menu of the desired ERP system, and select Edit configuration.
