What is Circula?

Circula offers an app-based solution for automated tracking of travel expenses in companies. With this all-in-one solution for processing receipts, e-bills and flat rates, expenses are digitized in compliance with GoBD – the prerequisite for paperless processes.


How Can I Set Up the Integration of Circula and Personio?

You need to generate new API credentials for this integration in Personio at Settings > API credentials. In most cases, when selecting an integration in the drop-down menu, the system automatically preselects the system attributes that need to be read or written by the integration. You can always add or remove attributes manually if they are needed, or you wish to do so. For more information on how to do this, have a look at our help center article on how to generate and manage API credentials.

Once you have generated the credentials, send them to the Circula team, who will then enable the interface. Please contact for more details.


Which Data Is Transferred?

With the integration, the attributes first name, last name, email address, employment relationship and status are transferred to your Circula account by default. IBAN and Vendor number can also be transferred on request. As part of the integration, Circula automatically creates employee accounts and sends invitation emails to all active employees, once data has been successfully imported.

After the import you are able to view the activated and invited employees in the User Management in your Circula account.


If an employee's status in Personio changes to inactive, they are automatically disabled in Circula.


How Much Does It Cost?  

Circula offers two different packages, depending on the scope of services.

  • Standard – €7/user/month
  • Enterprise – price on request
