Importing bank statement transactions is straightforward when you set up bank feeds on your accounting software or if you can download a file directly from the bank’s website.
However, sometimes you need to import old transactions from a few years ago or maybe you only have PDF or scanned copies of the statements.
As a busy professional, you don’t have the time to manually enter all this information. Thankfully, there’s a better way. You can use DocuClipper to automatically import the bank statements into Excel or your accounting softare.
Click on “Bank and credit card statements”.
Drag and drop one or more statements. DocuClipper works with any text or scanned bank statement. It uses Optical character recognition technology to be able to read scanned statements. You can process multiple statements at the same time.
Click on convert.
DocuClipper extracts all the transactions from the bank statement and other data like balances, dates, account numbers, etc.
DocuClipper compares transaction totals to summary information on the statement. If everything checks out, the statement is identified as reconciled, saving you time and manual review. You can see the reconciliation status on the summary table (top right of the page).
Here’s a video showing how to reconcile the statements:
Xero can import both QuickBooks Web Connect and CSV files. We recommend choosing QuickBooks Web Connect so you don’t have to specify the column mapping (Web Connect files are imported automatically).

Click on “Download QuickBooks Web Connect” and the Web Connect file will be downloaded to your computer
