The Rule

  • Rule type.
    The programme, depending on the type of transaction, if in credit or debit on the bank account, sets the rule as Money in or Money out transaction.
  • Rule title.
    It is optional, it is displayed in the Apply Rule dialogue.


These are the elements that are used to check whether there is a match for each individual transaction.

  • A match is given if all conditions are found.
  • If a match is given, the entry is listed among the transactions with rule.

The description

In the description, enter the text to be searched in the text of the imported transaction. If the text is found the transaction will be considered suitable for applying the rule, if the other conditions are then met.

  • Exact word or phrase
    • If you write only Best Insurance 982-948 as a condition of the rule, only transactions containing those words in that exact order will be considered matches.
    • If you write only Insurance, as a condition of the rule, all entries containing this exact word will be considered matches.
  • All words (starting with the "+ "sign)
    • If you write +Best Insurance 982-948 as a condition of the rule, all records containing these exact words, in any position, will be considered matches.
      All words must be present in the description of the transaction.
      The position of the words in the sentence is not relevant.
      The "+" sign is not considered in the search.
  • Upper and lower case
    When searching for input text, no case difference is made.
    The text you enter is applied to both upper and lower case text.


If you indicate an amount in the rule, only transactions with the same amount, as well as a match in the Description, will be considered as matches.
If you do not indicate any amount, any transaction of any amount that meets all other criteria will be treated as a match.


In this field you will already find by default the account from which you imported the transactions. If you leave the account field empty, all transactions, imported from any account, that meet all other criteria will be considered as matches.


These are the elements used to complete the transaction row if a match is given.

If the contra account or other items to be completed are not present, you can abort the Apply rules command, add the missing account, and call up the Actions > Recurring transactions > Apply rules... command.

Contra account

Enter the account in your chart of accounts that is to be matched in the rule. In this example, the correct contra account is the Health Insurance account.


You can already enter in the rule the VAT code that the programme must add to each movement considered as a match.

CC1, CC2, CC3

You can already enter in the rule the Cost Centres that the programme must add to each movement considered as a match.

By confirming with the OK button, the new rule is saved. You will return to the previous window where the imported movements with and without rules are displayed again.  

Matching Transactions

This table shows all imported transactions selected in the Apply Rules dialogue, which fall under this rule.


  • The Delete button, cancels the rule.
  • The OK button, saves the rule data.
    Be aware though that, until you do not give the command Apply Rules, the new rules won't be saved in the Recurring transactions table.
