DATEV Integration

The integration with DATEV enables the export of the working times and absences recorded in PlainStaff for import into the payroll in DATEV.


The DATEV integration is in the beta test phase. If you plan to use this integration, please contact our sales team at

Configuration Of The Integration

The configuration takes place under Administration > Integrations by clicking on "Settings" on the DATEV tile:

DATEV Settings

The following settings can be made:

  • Consultant number: Your DATEV consultant number
  • Client number: Your DATEV client number

In addition, the "DATEV Lohnart" and, in the case of absences, the "DATEV Ausfallschluessel" must be defined for all booking types that you want to transfer to DATEV. Details here.

Export To DATEV Payroll

The export to DATEV is done by the export button in the top right of the employee overview of the working time module. It is only available to admins.

DATEV Export

Just select the month you want to export and click "Export". PlainStaff creates a *.txt file, which can then be imported into DATEV in the calendar view of the payroll accounting.
