Ponto enables all bank accounts to be securely and reliably linked to Yuki according to PSD2 and GDPR regulations,


Only a user with the 'Management' role can link one or more bank accounts to Ponto, reauthorise a linked bank account or disconnect the link of bank account(s).


Only the account holder of a bank account can authorise (grant Yuki access) and link the relevant bank account in Ponto


Each bank account authorised in Ponto (grant Yuki access) costs €1.00 per month.


ATTENTION!

Bank accounts from multiple domains in Yuki can be linked to one Ponto account.


Once a bank account is linked to Ponto, all bank transactions of the relevant bank account (including opening and closing balances) are automatically added to the administration every day.


Only payment accounts can be linked through Ponto. Once a bank account is linked, the transactions of that day are automatically retrieved. Thereafter, bank transactions will be retrieved every 6 hours by automatic synchronisation of the bank account.


ATTENTION!

  • All bank accounts you want to link to Ponto must be linked one by one.

    So if you want to link more than one bank account to Ponto, complete the linking process of the first bank account completely in Yuki. This means that during the linking process in Ponto, you select only the bank account you want to link at that time.

    Then, in Yuki, click on the Connect button behind the next bank account you want to link.

  • We advise against linking foreign currency payment accounts at this stage

  • A simultaneous linking of a bank account to Ponto and with one of the four accounting links Rabobank, ABN AMRO, ING or Knab will cause duplicate transactions in the administration!

    The relevant accounting link must be discontinued.

    When you want to link a bank account to Ponto that is already linked via the ABN AMRO, ING, Rabobank or Knab accounting link, the following message appears on the screen, in this example of an ING account:


    Follow the instructions on the screen to disconnect the relevant accounting link.

Reauthorize linked bank account

Every 6 months, the authorization of a linked bank account in Ponto must be renewed. The expiry date of the authorization is shown in the Expires on column.


The accountant has the option to send a message to all users in the domain to remind them to reauthorize a linked bank account.


One month before the due date, the status of the bank account will change to Expires soon and the Reauthorize button will appear in the line of the corresponding bank account. Click on this button and go through the instructions in the Ponto screens.  


ATTENTION!

Only the account holder(s) of the bank account(s) can reauthorize the linked bank account(s).


After successfully reauthorizing the linked bank account, a notification will appear in your screen that the bank account has been reauthorized and the status of the bank account will then change back to Connected after a few moments.

All users in the domain will automatically receive a reminder in the Yuki Assistant app and in the PO Box one month, ten days and one day before the due date and on the day of the due date. In addition, an email is also automatically sent to all users.
