DATEV integration


The payroll solutions DATEV LODAS and DATEV Lohn und Gehalt accompany tax consultants, chancelleries as well as self-billing companies from the preliminary recording of payroll data processing in the DATEV cloud or inward to electronic data transfer and confirmation.


Payroll with DATEV

What Does the Integration With Personio Look Like?

Setting up the Interface

The linking of the solutions develops from manual import to data transfer via an API. This programming interface will enable a comfortable and bidirectional data transfer. The tax consultant has to order an access medium for the Personio user for data exchange via API in a standardized process. With the help of the access medium, the user has to register once at the DATEV data center before he is able to use the data exchange between DATEV and Personio.

Transfer of Data

The integration includes the automated transfer of employee data from Personio to the DATEV data center. Personio continuously expands this data scope by further payroll-relevant components such as salaries and additional compensation payments. In the next step, the integration will also work in the other direction so that payroll-relevant documents can be automatically transferred from DATEV to Personio.
