Exchange payments and account information directly with your banks

Written by Alexander Kutilov on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Online

Previously I have mentioned about the growing demand of Exact Globe customers to have the ability to start sending payment and collection orders to banks online and receiving bank statements online and thus having banking information real-time available.

This demand is being acknowledged by Exact and as a result we have firm plans on implementing such solutions so all up-to-date banking information is automatically at your fingertips.

As from the product update 401 Exact Globe supports this way of working with Rabobank in the Netherlands. It provides integration and automatic exchange of the bank payment files, bank collection files and bank statement files between Exact Globe and Rabobank, based on the Exact Online technology platform.

Since last month, when Exact Globe product update 401 went generally available, more than 150 Exact customers have registered for this solution!

Furthermore, in the coming Exact Globe product update 402, Belgian customers will enjoy fully automatic integration with Isabel Go . With the help of Isabel Go integration in your accounting package, you can exchange payments and account information directly with your banks.

Today Exact is also conducting research into presenting this way of working with other Dutch banks. Exact Online has already successfully launched automatic bank statement synchronization with ABN AMRO. Exact Globe customers will have the same opportunity in the nearest future.

You are welcome to stay updated on further developments in the area of cash flow management and electronic banking solutions through our regular postings on the Exact Product Blog.

Turn Excel sheets into XML files for import into Exact Globe

Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Globe

Exact Globe has the capability to import XML files. There are professional tools to turn an Excel sheet into XML and subsequently (using another tool) to map that XML file to the Exact Globe “style sheet”. That process is not for the faint-hearted as it requires technical knowledge and tools.

Turn Excel sheets into XML files for import into Exact Globe

In this document, you can find links to Excel sheets containing makro’s that allow the creation of an XML file, that can be imported into Exact Globe, directly from an Excel sheet. The makros can be edited to your liking.

How do you enter your Payroll in Belgium?

Written by Philippe Robert on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Online

In Exact Online we have a module for the payroll calculation of your employees for different activity sectors. However, this module is currently only available for The Netherlands legislation. What about Payroll in Belgium?


In Belgium there are around 50 certified Payroll companies (like Partena, Securex, SDworx,  …) that will calculate your payroll for you. They also provide a lot of extra services regarding employee legislation. In Belgium this can be so complex, and change so many times during the year, that almost all companies let a specialized company handle the payroll related activities.


For this reason, we are not going to create a payroll module specific to Belgium. None the less, you need to book the payroll entries in your financial administration in order to pay your employees and calculate the correct figures for your employee’s costs.


You probably book these entries manually in Exact Online or Exact Globe. Retype this information by hand takes time and is prone to errors. That’s why we are looking into a way to import them automatically from your social secretariat (Payroll Company). Before we start with this project, I would like to get your feedback on this topic – particularly regarding the following questions:
  • What is the name of your social secretariat (payroll company)?
  • What kind of entry process would you like to have?
  • Do you execute the payment of your employees yourself or does the social secretariat this for you?
    • 1 summary entry with 1 line per GL account
    • Details per cost center (department)
    • Details per employee
Please let me know your thoughts as a comment to this post or send me a mail.
Thank you in advance.
