|SODA = A standardized digital format, developed and registered by CodaBox.|
Thanks to the standardized 'SODA' format, the accounting entries, created by the social secretariats, can be sent directly to the accounting offices of the companies to be imported into their accounting program.
SODA are transferred directly (in XML format) and are made available to the Accounting Office electronically and securely via the CodaBox API or other secure electronic channels (same channel as for the delivery of CODA).
What are the conditions for ordering SODA files?
You are an Accoutant?
- You are or you become a CodaBox client and you order the CODA Service
- You check on our website if your client works with a Social Secretariat partner of CodaBox and if you work with a SODA compatible software
- You order the SODA service for your client
Note: No SODA without CODA. The SODA product is not available separately. SODA can only be transferred for the professional clients of the Accountant, under the condition that CODABOX already delivers CODA on the basis of a mandate granted for this purpose.
You are a Company?
SODA is currently only available to accountants, but if you are a client of an accountant who has subscribed to the CodaBox Services, you can obtain the direct delivery of SODA files with their agreement.
The SODA Service is charged per platform via:
- which is charged 1x at the moment of activation of the mandate
- A monthly fee* There is no cumulation as for CODA: the monthly cost for this Service is charged only once/month regardless of the number of active mandates.
When is the monthly cost of the Service charged?As soon as you have an active SODA mandate and you receive SODA files on your platform.
Why is the cost of the SODA Service low?Because the price does not depend on the number of client folders on each of your platforms. If you have 200 folders on your Expert platform, the price remains unchanged, you only pay the monthly cost of SODA once.

Why is the status of my order 'Archived'?
If your client is not yet known by this organization but you sent them the order, they will inform us they cannot process your SODA order.
Our system will then automatically archive your order and the status will change to 'Archived' in MyCodaBox.
Save time and avoid having to re-order SODA by checking before ordering whether your client is already affiliated with the Social Secretariat.
