Recap supports integration with Swissborg via CSV files. Once set up, the Recap application will categorise all of your transaction history and calculate your tax position.

Beta Support

Please note that Recap's support for Swissborg is currently in beta. This means that not all of the usual Recap features are available for Swissborg yet. For example, you cannot reclassify your transactions. Recap will be adding these features in the future.

Step 1 - Download Excel File from Swissborg

Swissborg enable a user to download a CSV file that contains all of your transaction history. You can do this by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Account Statement menu and select the dates that you wish to be included.

  2. Select the reference currency for the statement for equivalence e.g. GBP

  3. Select 'Excel File'

Step 2 - Convert Swissborg Excel File to CSV

You will need to convert your Swissborg file to CSV format before importing it into Recap. You can do this by following these steps:

  1. Open your Excel file in MS Excel and it should look similar to this:

  2. Delete the first 8 rows of data so that the headers on row 9 now appear on row 1. You can do this by highlighting the first 8 rows, right clicking and selecting 'delete'. When prompted, select 'shift cells up'.

  3. Save the new file as a CSV file by clicking 'File', then clicking 'Save As...' and selecting 'CSV UTF-8' as the 'File Format'

Note: Recap are aware of a problem where opening a CSV file in certain spreadsheet editors (e.g. Microsoft Excel) can alter the date format without the user being aware. Please ensure that your dates are in the format 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss' before saving your changes

Step 3 - Create a new Exchange Account on Recap
