In the payroll export, Circula allows for the export of payroll tax-relevant data which can be further processed in DATEV. For this we offer the following formats:

  1. Payroll Import Data Service

    Learn in this article how you can automatically transfer Circula data to DATEV for payroll accounting.



  2. DATEV Wage and Salary Export ("DATEV Lohn und Gehalt Export")

This export is used for the import into DATEV Lohn und Gehalt. The file itself has a .txt extension and is therefore a text file with a special format.

The content can be represented, in a simplified way, as follows. In the file itself, there is no table, the table here is simply used for a simplified representation.

Consultant Number ("Beraternummer")

Client Number ("Mandantennummer")

Target Month

Employee Number ("Personalnummer")

Wage Type Number ("Lohnartnummer")

Amount

Employee Number

Wage Type Number

Amount

Employee Number

Wage Type Number

Amount

Here is a version with example values:

123456

54321

04/2021

1111111

1108

98,00

222222

1108

100,00

222222

2202

40,00

In the export file, the values look like this:

123456 54321 04/2021

1111111 1108 98.00

222222 1108 100.00

222222 2202 40.00


3. DATEV LODAS

This export is used for the manuell import to DATEV LODAS.

This is how the export works

  1. Go to Approve & Control and click on the Payroll Export tab.

  2. Select the employees costs you want for payroll by placing a check mark next to their names.

  3. Click on Export, select the appropriate month in which you would like to have the cost rates calculated for payroll disbursement.

  4. Click on the Export button at the bottom left.

  5. The export will start and the LODAS file will be saved to your local download folder.
