Before starting the exporting process, make sure you have adjusted your DATEV LODAS settings properly. If you need more information, visit our article Manage your DATEV integration or check our overview process here

To start the DATEV export, follow the next steps:

  • Go to People > Payroll
  • Click on Payroll group on the left-hand side corner 
  • Choose DATEV Export
  • Click on CONFIRM (to close the payroll process)
  • Click on DOWNLOAD 


  • If you have more than one company, you will be able to download different DATEV files (one per each company).
  • Make sure you have chosen the right pay period for your export and that the last pay period was CONFIRMED (closed). Otherwise, your downloaded file will have the information from the pay period that was before.
