Save time! Integrate online banking with your accounting system. It doesn’t get any easier.
What is banking integration?
Banking integration is a process whereby the company connects its accounting system to their bank accounts to automate and simplify the accounting process.
How banking integration works
Banking integration usually involves establishing a direct data connection between the accounting system and the bank, which gives the company access to transaction information and account balances.
With banking integration, your business can easily and quickly transfer transaction data from bank accounts to the accounting software without having to manually enter the information.
Why use this solution?
Banking integration can help to reduce errors in your accounts and save time and reduce costs of manual tasks related to payments, accounting and bookkeeping. It helps the company to improve cash flow management by providing balance information and transaction data. This provides greater cash flow predictability and allows you to plan outgoing payments and investments in an efficient way.

From Telepay to XML
Soon it will no longer be possible to send files in the Telepay format. By 31.03.2024, all payment files must be sent in XML format. We therefore recommend that you use start using the new format as soon as possible: ISO 20022 XML.
Are you unsure whether the XML format is supported in your accounting system? If so, you will need to contact your system provider.
Make a plan today for how you will switch over to the XML format. You can either upgrade the ERP system to a version that handles XML, or you can use a conversion service.
Do you have any questions about using the XML format at DNB? Please contact us on [+47] 915 04800 for more information.

ISO 20022 XML
ISO 20022 XML is an international messaging standard for payment services that is used in the interface between customer and bank, and which is increasingly also used between banks, nationally and internationally. The new standard will replace the old proprietary standards within each individual country. The advantage for our customers and their suppliers of ERP and treasury systems is a standard that is conveniently similar from bank to bank.
Test format and payment types
We offer our customers a validation tool called XMLdation. With this tool, developers can test the format and payment types you work with on an ongoing basis.
