Below we run through each setting that can be altered within your Company Settings page.

To get to the company settings page, click Company Settings on the left-hand side of your company homepage.

You then see headings for the following:

Company Details

Billing A/c

This shows the email address of the billing user associated with the company.

Company Name

This allows you to edit the company name. If integrated with accounting software this name must match the name of the company within your accounting software.

Company Location

This shows the home country of the company.


This shows the base currency for the company. AutoEntry automatically converts foreign currency invoices back to the home currency.

📎NOTE: You can't change this setting if:

  • You integrate with accounting software

  • Files are already uploaded to this company

📌TIP: If you need to change the currency, we recommend you create a new company. Make sure to assign the correct base currency as you create it.

Any invoices/bills already uploaded to the original company you can then move to the new company. You can then delete the original company.

Date Format

This shows the date format to be used when you publish invoices.

For example, DD-MM-YY or MM-DD-YYYY etc,

Accounting Settings

Reference in Accounting Software

This controls what reference number is used for invoices published to your accounting software.

  • Invoice Number uses the invoice number extracted from the invoice

  • AutoEntry Id is an individual number created by AutoEntry for each invoice

Suggested Supplier/Customer Accounts

When you turn this on, it means that AutoEntry compares the name of the extracted to the list of suppliers imported from your accounting software. If it finds a match, AutoEntry fills in the supplier/customer account automatically with that account.

Suggested Supplier/Customer Accounts by AutoEntry are highlighted by the blue tab in the corner of the supplier/customer field.

Not Registered for VAT

This allows you to set your company as non-VAT registered.

VAT Period Reporting

This allows you to tag invoices for VAT period reporting.


These are settings specific to Purchase invoices:

  • Default VAT Codes - Allows you to set a default VAT/Tax code for AutoEntry. This then automatical populates the VAT so the VAT extracted on the invoice matches your preferred default tax rate

  • Default Due Date - Allows you to set this for both Purchase and Sales invoices, before posting to your accounting software.

  • Capture Line Items - This is available as an option for all invoices/bills processed by AutoEntry


Settings specific to Sales invoices:

  • Default Sales Category - If you categorise all sales invoices to the same nominal (e.g. the Sales account), you can set it here. AutoEntry then assigns that nominal category to all Sales invoices for you

  • Default VAT Codes - Same as for Purchases

  • Capture Line Items - Same as for Purchases


Notification Emails allows you to set the email addresses that receive a notification email when documents have been processed.

Mailbox Settings

This shows the email addresses automatically generated by AutoEntry when a company is set up. This uses the name of the company for the address.

You can:

  • Change the name of these email addresses

  • Choose whether multiple email attachments process as a single item

Additional Details

You can add any client reference number or ID to the company name when viewing the inbox along with the client type. These details are shown below the company name.


  • Archive Invoices - Gives you the option to automatically archive your invoices after they have been published to your accounts package

  • Shared Links - Controls who can access a shared image from AutoEntry externally

  • Show Invoice Number - Displays invoice numbers in the Inbox and Archived folder for Purchases and Sales, without you having to click into the invoice to view it

File Management

This gives you the option to have AutoEntry delete a file from the File Management folder automatically after it has been submitted for processing.
