Gastronomy businesses in particular have been confronted with numerous legal changes in recent weeks. In addition to access restrictions, distance & mask rules, there were also numerous tax reforms.
As a partner with handshake quality, it is important to us to support you optimally even in challenging times. We have expanded our software so that you can quickly and easily benefit from the legal changes – of course, all products continue to comply with all legal regulations.
Free updates for maintenance customers
Within a few days after the VAT changes in Germany and Austria became known, ventopay has expanded its cash register and management software. With these enhancements, we enable all our customers to easily change VAT, with the option of maintaining gross or net prices.
The new software versions will be rolled out via remote maintenance by the beginning of July. All maintenance customers receive a new version of the mocca.admin management software and related services from our service. For our Austrian customers, an update for the mocca.touch cash register systems is being rolled out so that the receipts are still correctly signed.
We provide both the software extensions and the rollout free of charge as part of a valid maintenance contract.
