I have scoured the forums and Knowledge Base, and followed some of the 'How To’s, but still running into a brick wall with what we are trying to do - any advice extremely appreciated!
We have a small retail business (a corner shop). I need to put in the cash register my Weekly Takings broken down somewhere/somehow into:
- Petty cash takings
- Card payments takings
- Takings from phone top ups and gas and electric meter top ups
[- Preferably separating zero rated goods and 20% VAT for the cash and card]
I made a client called ‘Weekly Takings’ and I’m trying to follow the ‘How To’ tutorials, but I think I have missed a setup-step, because when I click into the Cash Register and try to add a line there is only an option for Petty Cash (and it auto-populates an assumed VAT). There is no ‘card’ column like in the ‘How To’
In Accounting for daily takings, I don’t even know how to get to the screen the snapshots are on where she has drop downs saying ‘20% VAT’ or ‘No VAT’. I can’t figure out how/where to get these options. Is that in the Cash Register or somewhere else?
I went into the ‘Advanced Settings’ on the Cash Register, but I don’t know what to do in there. The three drop downs at the bottom (from the Cash Register explanation page) only have in the option showing.
I think I might be trying to do things in the wrong areas of the website perhaps? If not, what am I missing? Please someone help me get to grips with these basics!!!
