Quick and easy via our DATEV integration!

Under the Payment Services Directive II (PSD2), you can grant access to third-party applications to your transaction data.

To do this for your Finom transaction data, you’ll first need to register for your SolarisBank credentials to “claim” your bank account.

Once you’ve completed this registration you can use your credentials to connect to many third-party applications and accounting tools.

The whole process should take about 15-20 minutes. You’ll need to know your Finom IBAN and have your registered mobile phone to hand. Follow the steps below to connect your account with DATEV:

  1. Set up my.solarisbank.de credentials.

  2. Connect your Finom account with DATEV.

  3. Initiate the sync of your transactions.

Set up my.solarisbank credentials.

Register for my.solarisbank.de

Navigate to my.solarisbank.de and click on “Register”. You will only need to register once. Afterwards, you can use these credentials to connect to all available third-parties.

Enter your email address and your phone number and click on “Register”.

Verify my.solarisbank account.

You'll get an e-mail from solarisBank with the temporary login and the next instructions which will offer you to login and create a new password:

Connect your Finom account. Once you’ve registered, connect my.solarisBank account with your Finom IBAN and the mobile number linked to your account in Finom:

Verification via TAN. For the safety of your Finom account, there is a 2-step-authentication process. Confirm that it’s really you trying to connect your account with my.solarisbank with a TAN. You'll get a message to your phone with the TAN which you have to enter on the next screen:

Verify your Finom account. Now verify that you have access to the account. You will need to enter the code that appears in the description of the €0.00 test transaction from solarisBank. The transaction usually arrives in a matter of minutes. Please note that you will not see this transaction on your dashboard, it's only available in the statement. So, we kindly advise you to wait a few minutes and then download the statement for the current month, where you'll see this test-transaction.

Registration completed. You’re now ready to connect DATEV Unternehmen Online.
