🧮 + 🖥️ + 🗺️

Welcome to the official developer documentation of Kontera!

Kontera is a software-as-a-service application. It is a fully cloud-based web application, and is being hosted and developed by Kontera GmbH.


Accounting is a important part of running a business. Often, doing the books feels like a mandatory chore instead of a valuable tool to gain insights about your own business. Many software systems, especially ERPs, treat accounting as a second-class citizen. Thus, seemingly simple tasks can become a time-consuming and frustrating experience.

We have built Kontera to automate accounting processes so you get more efficient, while at the same time making sure that your ledger can become a great tool to gain business insights vs. just being a tedious chore.

We do that by automating and fixing the most time-consuming process: your journal.


Kontera is a powerful pre-accounting application. It does a number of things:

  • Analyzing and extracting data from documents such as receipts and invoices
  • Importing credit card, bank and other financial transactions
  • Reconciling your transactions with your documents
  • Providing personalized suggestions to categorize transactions
  • Automating processes by learning about how you work

In the end, Kontera generates journal entries out of your business transactions, managing a lot of hidden complexity for you:

  • Respecting accrual or cash basis accounting
  • Knowing about your tax periods and applicable tax rates
  • Working within your individual chart of accounts
  • Providing multiple reporting dimensions


We strongly believe in a best-of-breed approach, especially for micro, small or medium enterprises. This is why we also believe that it is of utmost importance that you are able to extend your software and enhance its capabilities.

Currently, we offer the following possibilities to extend kontera:
