How to import your Xero bills CSV into Crezco

Step by step process on how to correctly export a CSV for your bills and upload them into Crezco

Before exporting please note the following:

  • You can export invoices or bills, credit notes, prepayments, and overpayments to a comma-separated values (CSV) file. You can't export repeating invoice or bill templates.
  • Your user role determines what you can export. If you can’t access the detail in Xero, you can't export it.
  • The export includes all transactions by default (up to a maximum of 500). You can export by status, or add a search to filter transactions into groups if you have more than 500 to export.
  • Each transaction line item is listed as a separate line in the exported CSV file. This keeps the file consistent with the format needed to import invoices and bills back into Xero.
