You can use Bank Accounts for storing and organizing your bank statements on Envoice. Bank Accounts can also be displayed on your sales invoices. Bank Accounts are also used to prioritise preferences for extracting bank account numbers from your expenses and to create payment files for banks.
Some accounting software use bank accounts to identify transactions paid for in a specific way. For this, it may be necessary to link Payment Methods to specific Bank Accounts
Bank Accounts can also be imported from specific integrated Accounting Software.
You cannot change the account type (for example, Credit Card to Other), or delete an account after a transaction is created. This kind of bank account can be only archived. Bank accounts imported from your accounting software cannot be deleted or archived.

Managing bank accounts
After adding a bank account, you may want to edit the details about it such as bank name or account number. You may also want to review reconciliation details or delete an erroneous account.
Also, you cannot completely delete a bank account after you have used it to process transactions. When a bank account that has been used to process transactions is deleted, it will be marked as archived and be still visible in your bank accounts list. Bank accounts imported from your accounting software cannot be deleted or archived.
To edit or delete a bank account
- Go to Banking:
- To delete an account, click Delete under the account name and then click OK to confirm the deletion.
