Importing companies

Import / Export advanced

Please note Updates and imports cannot be undone! Use the Sandbox for testing.

Please note: An update/import can only take place within the current period.

Please note: The import file may contain formulas or macros; only 'clean' text can be imported. In addition, the format must remain the same (no modifications in rows 1 and 2).

Please note:If you carry out an update, then all the data in the Excel sheet will be updated. That means we also overwrite the existing (correct) data. Hiding fields in the Excel file does not change this. If you want to make an update, you will only have to enter (retain) the data in Excel that you actually want to change.


1. Go to the Home tab.

2. Click Import / Export Advanced.

Please note:

  • Fixed wage components can only be updated and variable wage components can only be imported. This means that when you import clients, you need to bear in mind that the fixed wage components are not included. You can update the Fixed wage components tab after completing this import.Please note that you must then select that tab only.
  • After an empty row or column, the data is no longer copied over with the import or update (see example below).
