Let's go

It is closing time right away! Time to end the day. First you do a cash balance check via “balance drawer”. Then you close the calendar day using “Cclose current drawer”. Complete!

Always close the cash sheet manually

The cash sheet will NEVER close automatically. Not even if you end the checkout day on the MINI . So please remember that after the checkout day ends, you still do the checkout in the menu and the day-end closing in your orderbird cashbook!


step by step

  1. Complete the checkout day in the menu on the MINI.
  2. Go to the cashbook and tap on “balance drawer” and be sure to check the cash balance in your cash register with the counting report. You can find out how to do this here: How do I do cash balancing?
  3. If you notice any discrepancies between the target and actual inventory, this is your chance to make up for forgotten entries or write a correction entry. In doing so, you align the target stock with the actual stock in your cash register. Remember to substantiate and comment on everything carefully! This is how you make a correction entry . Save the result of your checkout before making a correction entry.
  4. If the actual stock of your cash register matches the target stock, then save the result of your cash register fall and tap on “close current drawer” on the main page of the cashbook. 

No further cash receipts or cash expenditures possible after closing the cash sheet

You cannot enter any further cash receipts or cash expenses for that calendar day once you have completed the cash sheet ! We can no longer help you in this case either, because according to legal requirements, the completed cash sheet can no longer be adjusted or manipulated. If you notice an error afterwards, please contact your tax advisor and clarify how best to deal with it.
