Hi @BMD,

Welcome to QuickFile!

From the looks of the error you need to alter the file you are uploading - the nominal codes you are quoting on the file aren’t being recognised. It may be worth checking the ones you have used against the chart of accounts.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Hi,

The purchase nominals are those that start with 5


etc.

Only certain codes are allowed on purchase invoices by default - anything in the 5xxx or 6xxx range certainly, plus most overheads codes 7100 upwards and the 0xxx fixed asset codes. Anything wage/salary/pension related shouldn’t be treated as a purchase, and you can’t assign purchases directly to control account codes like VAT liability or “capital and reserves” codes in the 3xxx range.

What exactly are you trying to import here? From the look of some of those codes you might be better off looking at the trial balance import tool, or just manually create a journal from your previous balance sheet.
