Mapping a file in Silverfin

When you set up a new client, you will see a screen like this...You won't be able to start using Silverfin for that client until you have completed the mapping!


  • If you need to leave the mapping page and want to continue mapping at a later stage, click 'Save & next page' otherwise your mapping will be lost;

Which codes do I map to?

  • Use this quick guide to understand the Silverfin Chart of Accounts in a nutshell. In short, codes beginning with a 1 are Assets, 2 Liabilities, 3 Equity, 4 Revenue and 5 to 9 make up the rest of the Income Statement.
  • If you are an admin, you have access to the mapping list and it may be useful to open the Silverfin chart of accounts on a separate screen when starting out with mapping, as this will give you an overview of the different account types that the Silverfin nominal codes fall into. 
    • To do this, go to the 'Templates' tab and scroll down to Mapping lists and you will find the Silverfin CoA file


  • You are able to go back and amend any mapping at a later stage. Here's how to do this: 

Step 1: Click on the 'Accounts' tab in the relevant client overview page


Step 2: Click the 'Mapping' button on the top right


Step 3: Change the mapping as required!


If you're stuck whilst mapping and need some someone to point you in the right 'direction' please contact the support desk or your CSM!
