Bank Statement management

Importing Bank statements to Odoo will help you to keep an active update on the financial movements in your bank account and you can compare them with the transactions registered in your accounting books. Bank Synchronisation will help you to automatically import your bank statements to Odoo. This method is way too easy to carry out and Odoo will ensure that no bank statement data is left out.

If you prefer not to use the Bank Synchronization method, there are other methods you can choose to enter the Bank statement manually or import the bank statement delivered by your bank.

Import Automatically

Odoo supports multiple advanced file formats for you to upload Bank statements. To import the Bank statement go to the module’s dashboard. From the Overview, section select your bank and click on the ‘Import statement’ button as shown below.


Click on the three buttons next to the Bank section and from the options select the Import statement and a tab will appear with the formats in which you can upload the bank statements as shown below.


Select the files by clicking on the SELECT FILES button and upload the statements to Odoo using the UPLOAD button.

A new import widget will pop up as shown below to configure the file that you want to import.


You can format the file using the Formatting options and you can also Map the columns to import the files. Select and configure the options to manage the statements easily. After the configuration on the file, you can Test the configurations by clicking on the TEST button. Click on the IMPORT button and the configured files will be imported.

Manual method

If you prefer the Manual method more you can Manually enter the Bank statements to Odoo. To do this go to BANK in your Accounting module dashboard Overview. Click on the dots to the side of the section and from the options under NEW click on Statements as shown below.


Click on the Statement button and a page will open up.


Enter the Reference number and choose the Journal as Bank, Date Starting Balance, and Ending Balance. In the Transactions section or tab, click on, ‘Add a line’ to enter the Statements.
