Cash book

If your business works with cash transactions, you are in some countries required by law to keep a cash book. Billit lets you keep this cash book digitally.

  • Adding transactions

    Once you have activated the cash book, you can start adding cash transactions.

    You will always see the current balance at the top of the cash book.

    To add a transaction, enter the details below:

    • Date: the transaction date. This can never be a date before the last entry date.
    • Type:
      • Cash payment customer: A payment made by a customer (income) or a reimbursement to a customer (expense)
      • Cash payment supplier: A payment made to a supplier (expense) or a reimbursement received from a supplier (income)
      • Correction: You can never delete entries (each entry always remains visible), but you can add corrections (income or expense)
      • Daily takings: Daily takings paid in cash (income or expense)
      • Private cash withdrawal (expense)
      • Transfer from bank to cash book: cash withdrawal (income)
      • Transfer from cash book to bank: cash deposit (expense)
      • Private deposit (income)
    • Incomes: Depending on the type, you can enter a positive amount here
    • Expenses: Depending on the type, you can enter a positive amount here

    Once you enter an amount, you can immediately see what the balance will be after adding the transaction. Obviously, the balance cannot go below 0.

    It is always best to add a description as well. This will help you, your accountant, and, if necessary, the tax authorities understand the transactions.
