How do I book a receipt?

Animana tracks all payments throughout the day, so at the end of the day, it expects a specific amount on your card machine and in the cash drawer. If cash has been taken out of the cash drawer (for example to purchase stamps or flowers), this receipt needs to be registered in Animana. Otherwise, you will have a cash difference at the end of the day. This article will explain how you can book such a receipt.

Before you start

  • When you book a receipt you will need to book it to a supplier. Make sure the supplier has been added as a contact in Animana and has the “supplier” checkbox ticked in Client Data > Data.
  • When you book a receipt you will need to book it on a cost ledger, for instance ‘Supermarket’, ‘Supplies & Sundries’ or ‘Petty Cash’. Or you might have a specific cost ledger for more accurate tracking purposes when you spend larger cash sums at a specific supplier such as ‘Tesco’. Make sure the cost ledger has been added before proceeding.
  • You will need a user role with permission to access the day overview and ledger scheme.
