Import Accounting Data Via CSV Trial Balance New Ability to use Reach Reporting Through a CSV Upload.

Upload CSV Financial data into Reach Reporting | Visual Financial Reporting

In a Trial Balance, any Balance Sheet accounts will show the ending balance of that month. For any Profit and Loss accounts, they will show the cumulative ending balance of the fiscal year. Make sure not to show the activity or monthly change but the actual cumulative fiscal ending balance.

You can now connect a company through CSV. This feature was developed for advanced accountants who are typically using Excel or Google Sheets that export Trial Balance Data and then remap and regroup accounts. Reach CSV Import will upload both the Income Statement and the Balance Sheet.

First: Select "Add Company" and then choose the Upload CSV Trial Balance button.

The template you can download also includes this information. If your data is quarterly or annually, enter the total trial balance for the applicable period. For example, put Q1 data as of 3/31/2020 in the monthly column.
