In this article we'll cover importing of your chart of accounts for easy setup while getting your firm setup with Accounting. Follow the steps below to complete a successful migration of your data.

To successfully import your accounts, please take the time to read the following:

  • When you import a chart of accounts it will create any account not already apart of your firm's require accounts:

    • Account Receivable

    • Accounts Payable

    • Operating Account

    • Trust Account

    • Trust Account - Trust Liability

    • Revenue

  • You can import a maximum of 1000 rows, including the column header. If you've got more than 999 accounts, you can add other accounts manually.

  • When including your balances, these will overwrite any balance you have previously entered. If you don’t want to overwrite them or if you're unsure, leave the Balance column in the import file blank.

Prepare the MyCase Chart of Account Template

To complete a successful migration of your chart of accounts you'll need to use MyCase's import template. You can access this by logging in and completing the initial onboarding steps.
