Confirm your imported bank and credit card accounts
When you import a chart of accounts into Xero, it recognises certain accounts as bank accounts and asks for extra information. The information needed depends on whether the account is a bank account, credit card account or PayPal account. If you don't want to set up a bank feed or import bank statements for an account, classify it instead as a current asset account.
If your chart of accounts import file includes accounts with the account type Bank, Xero asks you for further information during the import process.
- Select the correct account type for each account. If you don't want to set up a bank feed or import bank statements for the account, select Current Asset.
- If you have multi-currency set up for your organisation, you can choose a non-base currency for your account.
- Make sure you enter the account number correctly so if you set up a direct bank feed or Yodlee feed, Xero can match it up.
- If you don't know the account number, leave the Account Number field blank. You can add the account number later.
Save the information you enter.
