Introduction
Celeritec Tally has been designed from the ground up to be as simple and as flexible as possible
to use. It is an affordable yet fully featured database product designed for retailers who require

n Sales can be split into different trading sessions.
n Allows configuration for both VAT registered and non VAT registered businesses.
n Record cash spent from individual tills and from cash-at-hand.
n Reconcile credit card receipts, cash and banking.
n Facilitates the balancing of house and till floats.
n Provides a recommended change order based on a configurable change reorder percentage.

n Records product shrinkage and wastage.
n A diary feature allows recording of events that happen during trading.
n A message centre allows messages to be sent to other users of the program.

The following diagram illustrates how the program has been designed to deal with the revenue
generated by your business.
Flowchart Explanation
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
At the start of trading, a till float is added to each till from the house float.
Sales are entered onto the till during trading.
Cash is spent from the till during trading to buy items for the business.
At the end of trading, the till float is returned to the house float reserve.
The cash remaining (being the takings, less any expenditure made during the day) is added to
the cash-at-hand balance.
6. Cash is spent from the cash-at-hand balance after trading has finished.
7. Cash-at-hand is used to temporarily increase the house float to cover weekends and holidays.
The house float is subsequently decreased and the money returned to the cash-at-hand balance,
when the float increase is no longer needed
8. The remaining cash-at-hand is taken to the bank.

Ribbon Menus
Introduction
The Ribbon, which is based on the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface, is designed to help you
quickly find the commands that you need to complete a task. Commands are organized in logical
groups that are collected together under tabs. Each tab relates to a type of activity, such as adding
sales or viewing records. To reduce screen clutter, some tabs are shown only when they are
needed. When the Ribbon is minimized, you see only the tabs.
There is no method of hiding the Ribbon, but you can minimize it to make more space on your
screen.
Full Ribbon
Minimized Ribbon
Ribbon Control Tool Tips
You can obtain information on an individual ribbon control by moving your mouse over a control.
A tool tip information box will then appear with an explanation of the controls function.
Always keep the Ribbon minimized
1. Click Customize Quick Access Toolbar.
2. In the list, click Minimize the Ribbon.
3. To use the Fluent Ribbon while it is minimized, click the tab you want to use, and then click the
option or command you want to use.
For example, with the Ribbon minimized, you can select the Sales Wizard option, click the Sales
tab, and then in the Add/Edit Sales Menu group, click the Sales Wizard. After you click the
button, the Ribbon goes back to being minimized.

Activating Via The Internet
Introduction
To help prevent software piracy, Celeritec Tally contains a sophisticated unlocking component,
which helps ensure that the program cannot be installed on multiple computers using the same
activation key.
It is recommended that users activate the product via the internet as this process is fully
automatic and activation is immediate.
How activation works
The activation component of the program generates an algorithm based on specific hardware
components that are installed in your computer. This algorithm, known as a fingerprint, is unique to
your computer. This fingerprint code is then submitted to our activation server together with the
product activation code and an unlock code is generated automatically and passed back from the
server to the program which activates the program.
Your internet activation code can be found within the confirmation email you received when you
purchased a licence to use the software, or on the inside cover of the CD or DVD, the product
came in.
Users without internet access can apply for a manual activation code from Celeritec Retail Systems.
This can be requested by fax or post and a manual activation code will be posted, emailed or
faxed back to you.
Please Note: Internet Activation and Manual Activation Codes are different and are not
interchangeable. You cannot use a manual activation code to unlock the software via the internet.
Purchasing Celeritec Tally licenses
Activation codes can be purchased from our on-line shopping channel, which can be found at www.
celeritec.com/shop.
If you require the program to be installed on more than one computer, you must purchase
additional software licenses from our on-line shopping channel. Please see the software licensing
section for details of the terms and conditions for the use of the program.
The activation screen appears each time you start the program during the evaluation period, or by
choosing Help > Activate Product.

to it, you should contact Celeritec Retail Systems to obtain a new unlock code.
Error Code 400 - Unable to Contact The Activation Web Server

System Configuration Wizard
Introduction
The System Configuration Wizard has been designed make setting up the program as easy as
possible. It uses a step-by-step approach to guide you through the various stages involved in
configuring the program to your business requirements.

need to consult your accountant for advice before configuring the program.
Once the system has been configured and you have added records to the database, you will no
longer be able to access the System Configuration Wizard and the menu option will be disabled in
the main ribbon menu. You will still be able to make changes to the system configuration, however,
by selecting System Setup from the main ribbon menu.

Trading Sessions
Celeritec Tally allows you to record sales for different trading sessions during the day. Splitting
your sales into sessions allows you to analyse each session's sales. For example, a restaurant has
a lunchtime and an evening session and the tills are reconciled after each session. By splitting the
day into two sessions, the sales performance for each session can be analysed.
To enable sessions, select Yes from the drop-down box. Select No to disable the sessions option.
If you have already entered trading sessions and you change this option to No, the existing
sessions will be deleted.
Sales Departments
If you have separate sales departments within your business, you can configure Celeritec Tally for
multiple sales departments to which you allocate your tills. Having separate sales departments
allows you to analyse the sales for each sales area you have. For example, a bar has two floors; a
ground floor bar and a basement bar. Two sales departments will be required, one for each floor.
Tills for each bar are then allocated to each sales department.
To enable sales departments, select Yes from the drop-down box. Select No to disable the sales
department option.
If Sales Departments have already been entered, changing this option to No will delete any
existing sales department.

6.1.2
Analysis Codes
Introduction
A chart of accounts is a set of analysis codes, known as nominal codes that are used in accounts
software. All financial transactions within a business are allocated to an analysis code that are then
used to produce financial reports such as a Profit & Loss or a Balance Sheet statement. Analysis
codes are used to record sales, expenditure, VAT, PAYE, bank balances, retained profit etc. A
detailed explanation of accounting practices is beyond the scope of this documentation and we
recommend that you consult your accountant if you need further information.
Each analysis code number within the chart of accounts must be unique.
The nominal codes required for Celeritec Tally are the ones that you use to record cash
transactions within your business. These can be broken down as follows:
n Sales - The nominal accounts used to record various types of sales.
n Purchases - the nominal accounts used to record cash purchases.
n Wages - A nominal control account that is used to balance employees net pay, if you pay your
employees in cash.
n Credit Cards - A control account that is used to record credit card receipts that are then
reconciled against the payments you receive from your credit card provider.
n Cash Account - A control account that is used to record cash receipts.
n Bank Accounts - Used to record cash banking.
n Float Account - A control account that is used to record the balance of the house float.
n VAT Control Account - A control account that records output and input VAT totals.
Control accounts
There are four control accounts within Celeritec Tally that are already set up within the system.
These are as follows:
1. VAT Control Account - The VAT element of sales and expenditure is posted to the VAT control
account.
2. Float Control Account - The Float Control account records the initial value of the house float and
any float increase, or decrease.
3. Cash Control Account - The value of cash receipts and purchases are posted to this account.
4. Suspense Account - The suspense account is used by the program to post the unbalanced
amount of any unbalanced record.
Note: You can change the analysis code and description of the above control accounts to
match your accounts software, but you cannot delete them.
Before you begin
Before you begin entering analysis codes, obtain a list of the analysis codes from your accounts
software package to enable you to match those you enter within Celeritec Tally to your accounts
software. If you are unsure how to proceed at this stage, we recommend that you consult your

accountant for an appropriate list.
Using the default chart of accounts
The program has a set of pre-defined analysis codes built in that you can use as a starting point in

business needs by adding to, editing or deleting the pre-defined codes.
To use the default chart of accounts, click the 'Use Default' Button.
If you have sales and purchase categories, bank accounts or credit card details have already
been setup and you click the Use Default button, all existing entries will be deleted.

Sales & Discount Categories
Introduction

sales or discount category is linked to an analysis code in the chart of accounts. The sales and
discount categories you require relate to your till's general report, commonly called a 'Z Read'.
If your till's report breaks sales down into different categories and you want to record sales for
each category for comparison, you should enter a sales category for each.

6.1.10 House Float Setup
Introduction
The house float refers to the amount of cash that you keep on the premises for use as change in
your tills. The program allows you to tailor the float to suit your business' change requirements. In
addition, you can setup re-order percentages for each coin type and the program will
automatically suggest a change order based on these percentages.
Use default setting
To use the default house float setup, click the 'Use Default' button. The program will automatically
enter the default values for the house float based on the following assumptions:
1. The initial house float value is £2,000, being the value of the cash kept aside for the purchase of
change.

2. Each till starts with an initial float of £200.
3. The coin bag/note total is the bagged value of each coin denomination that the banks supply,
eg. £1 coins come in bags of £20, 5p coins in bags of £5
4. The re-order percentages are the percentage of the total float required for each coin
denomination.
5. The coins used in a fresh till float are the total of each coin denomination, totalling £200.
Initial house float
Enter the total value of cash you have available in the house float. To simplify the balancing of the
house float on a day-to-day basis, it is recommended that the initial house float value is set to a
round figure.
You can increase or decrease the house float level to cover times when more change is
required, e.g. bank holidays, weekends etc. using cash-at-hand.
Float used in the till
Enter the total amount of change that is put into each till at the start of trading. The default amount
is £200.
Coins used
If you do not purchase a particular coin denomination from your bank for use as change, uncheck
the corresponding box in the right hand side 'Used' column. This will disable the 'Re-order
Percentage' field and 'Coins Used In Till' field for that coin and set its value to zero.
Coin bag/note total
The coin bag/note total is set up automatically for you and should not require any changes, unless
your bank provides coins in different bag values. Most banks supply change in the following coin
bag values:

for each coin. To configure this, enter a percentage figure for each coin denomination in the 'ReOrder Percentages' column. The percentages must add up to 100%. The following table is a
general guide to the percentages you should enter, based on normal change requirements and

Coins used in Till Float
It is recommended that you use a fresh till float each time you set up a till at the beginning of
trading and, wherever possible, use multiples of the bagged value of a coin. This allows both you
and the staff who will be using the till to quickly check that the initial till float balances to the agreed
total.
Enter a value for each coin that you use in your till float in the 'Coins Used In Till' column. The total
of the till float coin denominations must add up to the value you entered in the 'Float Used In Till
field'. The following table is a general guide to the amounts of each coin that should be used in a

Credit Cards
If your business accepts credit cards, then tick the box. If you do not accept credit cards as a form
of payment, uncheck the box. Unchecking the box will disable the credit card fields and reports
within the program.
If you have already entered credit card details you will not be able to change this option.
Trading Sessions
Celeritec Tally allows you to record sales for different trading sessions during the day. Splitting
your sales into sessions allows you to analyse each session's sales. For example, a restaurant has
a lunchtime and an evening session and the tills are reconciled after each session. By splitting the
day into two sessions, the sales performance for each session can be analysed.
To enable sessions, tick the box. Uncheck the box to disable the sessions option.
If you have already entered trading sessions you will not be able to change this option.
Sales Departments
If you have separate sales departments within your business, you can configure Celeritec Tally for
multiple sales departments to which you allocate your tills. Having separate sales departments
allows you to analyse the sales for each sales area you have. For example, a bar has two floors; a
ground floor bar and a basement bar. Two sales departments will be required, one for each floor.
Tills for each bar are then allocated to each sales department.
To enable sales departments, tick the box. Uncheck the box to disable the sales department option.
If Sales Departments have already been entered, you will not be able to change this option.

System Setup
Introduction
The System Configuration module is accessed by selecting Settings > System Setup from the
ribbon toolbar. The system setup form allows you to configure your chart of accounts, sales &
purchase types, bank accounts, credit cards, tills, sales departments, sales sessions, tax codes, cash
types and wastage types. Changes to any setting within the Sales Configuration are automatically
saved to the database.
The System Configuration form has the following tabs:
Chart of Accounts Tab
A chart of accounts is a set of analysis codes, known as nominal codes that are used in accounts
software. All financial transactions within a business are allocated to an analysis code that are
then used to produce financial reports such as a Profit & Loss or a Balance Sheet statement.
Analysis codes are used to record sales, expenditure, VAT, PAYE, bank balances, retained profit
etc. A detailed explanation of accounting practices is beyond the scope of this documentation
and we recommend that you consult your accountant if you need further information.
© 2008 Celeritec Retail Systems
Setting Up The System
49
Each analysis code number within the chart of accounts must be unique.
The nominal codes required for Celeritec Tally are the ones that you use to record cash
transactions within your business. These can be broken down as follows:
n Sales - The nominal accounts used to record various types of sales.
n Purchases - the nominal accounts used to record cash purchases.
n Wages - A nominal control account that is used to balance employees net pay, if you pay your
employees in cash.
n Credit Cards - A control account that is used to record credit card receipts that are then
reconciled against the payments you receive from your credit card provider.
n Cash Account - A control account that is used to record cash receipts.
n Bank Accounts - Used to record cash banking.
n Float Account - A control account that is used to record the balance of the house float.
n VAT Control Account - A control account that records output and input VAT totals.
Control accounts
There are four control accounts within Celeritec Tally that are already set up within the system.
These are as follows:
1. VAT Control Account - The VAT element of sales and expenditure is posted to the VAT control
account.
2. Float Control Account - The Float Control account records the initial value of the house float
and any float increase, or decrease.
3. Cash Control Account - The value of cash receipts and purchases are posted to this account.
4. Suspense Account - The suspense account is used by the program to post the unbalanced
amount of any unbalanced record.
Note: You can change the analysis code and description of the above control accounts to
match your accounts software, but you cannot delete them.
Before you begin
Before you begin entering analysis codes, obtain a list of the analysis codes from your accounts
software package to enable you to match those you enter within Celeritec Tally to your accounts
software. If you are unsure how to proceed at this stage, we recommend that you consult your
accountant for an appropriate list.
Using the default chart of accounts
The program has a set of pre-defined analysis codes built in that you can use as a starting point
in configuring the chart of accounts. The default analysis codes can then be tailored to suit your
business needs by adding to, editing or deleting the pre-defined codes.
To use the default chart of accounts, click the 'Use Default' Button.
If you have entered any sales or purchase categories, bank account or credit card details,
the Use Default button will be disabled.

Diary Event Types
Introduction
Celeritec Tally includes a handy diary feature that allows you to record events that happen during
trading. These diary entries can be particularly useful for recording events that have affected trade.
When analysing previous trading patterns, the diary entry will help you to remember what
happened on any particular day.
To open the diary events form, choose Settings > Diary Events from the main ribbon toolbar.
Diary entries can be allocated to a specific event, enabling you to report on just that event within
the program. For example, a bar holds a street party once a year. A diary event for the street party
can be set up and any comments made in the diary are recorded using this diary event. You can
quickly find all diary entries relating to the annual street party by requesting that the program only
shows diary entries for that particular type of event. The UK bank holiday's have already been set
up within the system.

House Float Setup
Introduction
The house float refers to the amount of cash that you keep on the premises for use as change in
your tills. The program allows you to tailor the float to suit your business' change requirements. In
addition, you can setup re-order percentages for each coin type and the program will
automatically suggest a change order based on these percentages.
To open the house and till float setup form, choose Settings > Float Setup from the main ribbon
toolbar.
Use default settings
To use the default house float setup, click the 'Use Default' button. The program will automatically
enter the default values for the house float based on the following assumptions:
1. The initial house float value is £2,000, being the value of the cash kept aside for the purchase of
change.
2. Each till starts with an initial float of £200.
3. The coin bag/note total is the bagged value of each coin denomination that the banks supply,
eg. £1 coins come in bags of £20, 5p coins in bags of £5
4. The re-order percentages are the percentage of the total float required for each coin
denomination.
5. The coins used in a fresh till float are the total of each coin denomination, totalling £200.
Initial house float
Enter the total value of cash you have available in the house float. To simplify the balancing of the
house float on a day-to-day basis, it is recommended that the initial house float value is set to a
round figure.
You can increase or decrease the house float level to cover times when more change is
required, e.g. bank holidays, weekends etc. using cash-at-hand.

Float used in the till
Enter the total amount of change that is put into each till at the start of trading. The default amount
is £200.
Coins used
If you do not purchase a particular coin denomination from your bank for use as change, uncheck
the corresponding box in the right hand side 'Used' column. This will disable the 'Re-order
Percentage' field and 'Coins Used In Till' field for that coin and set its value to zero.
Coin bag/note total
The coin bag/note total is set up automatically for you and should not require any changes, unless
your bank provides coins in different bag values. Most banks supply change in the following coin
bag values:
Coin/Note
Minimum Re-Order
£5 note
Individual notes
£2 coins
£20 bag

The system can automatically suggest a change order based on a percentage of the overall float
for each coin. To configure this, enter a percentage figure for each coin denomination in the 'ReOrder Percentages' column. The percentages must add up to 100%. The following table is a
general guide to the percentages you should enter, based on normal change requirements and
utilising all coin types:

Coins used in Till Float
It is recommended that you use a fresh till float each time you set up a till at the beginning of
trading and, wherever possible, use multiples of the bagged value of a coin. This allows both you
and the staff who will be using the till to quickly check that the initial till float balances to the agreed
total.
Enter a value for each coin that you use in your till float in the 'Coins Used In Till' column. The total
of the till float coin denominations must add up to the value you entered in the 'Float Used In Till
field'. The following table is a general guide to the amounts of each coin that should be used in a
fresh till float, based on a till float of £200.

Adding a Sales Record
Introduction
Balancing your tills can be a time consuming affair, especially if cash has been spent from the till
during trading and your sales include both cash & credit card forms of payment.
Celeritec Tally makes the process of balancing the till very straight forward.
At the end of trading, your till will contain the following:
n The initial float that was put into the till at the start of trading.
n Sales receipts in the form of cash & cheques.
n Receipts for payments made by credit card.
n Purchase receipts from any cash that has been spent from the till during trading.
To balance the till, you need to reconcile the till's 'Z Read' to the contents of the cash drawer. This
is achieved using the following formula:
Total Sales Inc Tax (Till 'Z Read') - Initial Float - Credit Card Receipts - Cash Expenditure Receipts Cash Left in Drawer = 0
For example:
n The till's 'Z Read' report totals £2000.00 at the end of trading.
n The initial float put into a till was £200.00.
n The Credit Card receipts in the till add up to £295.00.
n Cash Spent from the till during trading adds up to £35.00.
To balance the till, the cash left in the drawer should be £1,470.00:
£2000.00 (Z Read) - £200.00 (Initial Float) - £295.00 (Credit Card Receipts) - £35.00 (Cash Purchases)
= £1,470.00 (Cash Left In Drawer)

Adding a sales record
To add a sales record, select Sales > Add Sales from the main ribbon toolbar.
Removing the Initial Till Float
1. Click the Till Float button at the bottom of the sales form.
2. In the pop-up form that appears, remove the smallest denomination coin that you use in your
till float from the till drawer, add the coins and enter the total in the corresponding box.
Ignore coins that you do not use in your initial till float.
Note: Fields will be disabled for coins that are not part of an initial till float.
3. Repeat step 2 for all the coins that you used in the initial float.
4. Round down the overall total to the nearest £5.00 by returning the required coins to the till
and adjusting the form accordingly.
5. Continue counting using £5.00 notes until the total adds up to the initial float total. If you run
out of £5 notes round down to the nearest £10 and use £10 notes to complete the float
removal.
6. Return the removed till float to the house float.
Example
A restaurant uses £200 as an initial float. All meal and drinks in the restaurant are priced to the
nearest 5p. As a result 2p and 1p coins are not needed as part of the house float and are not
purchased from the bank.
At the beginning of trading an initial float is put into the till as follows:
Coin/Note

£5 note
£50
£2 coins
£40 (2 bags)
£1 coins
£60 (3 bags)

ready to combine the totals. If you do not wish to combine the totals, click no to the message box
that appears. The cash/cheques not banked total will exclude any new sales cash receipts that you
have recorded.

particular at each month end, as this will greatly assist you in reconciling the cash within your
accounting system.

Balancing the House Float
Introduction
Celeritec Tally includes a house float balancing feature to assist you in managing your house float
and change requirements. Your house float can be temporarily increased using funds from your
cash-at-hand balance, to cover weekends and holidays periods and then decreased to its standard
level, with the funds returned to the cash-at-hand.
Coin Conservation
The house float feature has been designed to utilise a coin conserver. Buying change from the bank
is expensive, so it is important to conserve as many of the coins that you use for change as
possible. A coin conserver can be used to keep odd coins for which you do not have enough to
make up a full bag. Coin conservers can be bought from most stationery suppliers.
Balancing the float
To access the house float feature, select Float > Balance Float from the main toolbar ribbon.
To balance the float perform the following steps:
1. Click the clear contents button to clear the form ready to begin your float balance.
Warning: Only the current float balance record is stored in the database and you cannot view
previous float balances. It is recommended that you printout a float report each time the house
float is balanced, to allow you to refer to previous float records.
2. If you are still trading and floats have been provided for your tills, enter the number of tills that
are in use. The system will automatically deduct the till float total from the house float.
Note: The amount deducted for a till that is in use, depends on the settings in the House Float
Setup module.

3. Add the notes available for change and enter the denominations into the 'Available For Change'
section of the form.
4. On occasion you may need to use funds from the house float for purchases when there are
insufficient funds available in the cash-at-hand balance. If any expenditure has been made from
the house float but has not been transferred into the system, enter the details of the expenditure
in the pop-up box that appears when you move the cursor to the Petty Cash field.
Note: Once you have sufficient funds available in your cash at hand balance, enter the purchase
details in a new purchase record and transfer the cash from the cash-at-hand balance back into the
house float.
5. Add up the number of full bags of coins & £5 notes you have in stock and enter the figures in
the 'Full Bags & £5 Notes' section.
6. Enter the amounts of loose change stored in the coin conserver. If you have enough coins of a
particular denomination to make up a full bag, bag them up and enter them in the 'Full Coin Bag'
section.
7. The Balance figure at the bottom right hand screen indicates if the float is balanced.
8. To print the float balance report, click the print preview button on the top left of the form.
11.2
Increasing/Decreasing the House Float
Introduction
To increase your float to cover weekends and holiday periods, you temporarily borrow funds from
your cash-at-hand to enable you to buy additional change.
After the weekend or holiday period, you return the cash borrowed by decreasing the float back to
its original value and returning the funds back to the cash-at-hand total.
Choose Float > Change Float Total from the main toolbar ribbon to launch the Increase/Decrease
Float module. You can also launch the Increase/Decrease float module within the House Float form
by clicking the the Float Inc./Dec. button [Alt-I] at the bottom of the form.
Increasing the float
1. Select Increase Float from drop-down box and enter the amount you wish to increase the float
by.
2. Click the Save Button [Alt-S] to save the record.
3. The program will automatically enter a purchase record transferring the amount of the float
increase from the cash-at-hand balance to the float account.
Decreasing the float
1. Select Decrease Float from drop-down box and enter the amount you wish to reduce the float
by.
2. Click the Save Button [Alt-S] to save the record.
3. The program will automatically enter a negative purchase record transferring the amount of the
float reduction back to the cash-at-hand balance from the float account.

denomination based on your normal business requirements.

16.1
Backing up the Database
Introduction
It is important that you keep regular backups of your program data. To help you do this, we have
included a Backup Wizard. You are also reminded to back up when you close the program.
Backups should be taken at least once a week and the program will warn you if a backup has not
been performed for over seven days.
Warning: Failure to perform regular backups, could result in the permanent loss of data should
a computer failure or data corruption occur.
Backup Procedure
1. To launch the backup wizard, click the round 'Office' button and select Backup Database Wizard.
2. A list of the most recent backups are shown. Click Next [Alt-N] to continue.
3. The program automatically creates a default file name for the backup using the current date in
the format "TallyBackup yyyy-mm-dd" eg: TallyBackup 2007-09-30. In addition, the program
remembers the location of the last backup for you. To choose a different location, click the
Browse button [Alt-B] to open the file save as dialog. Enter a backup name and location for the
backup and click the save button.
4. Click Finish [Alt-F] to begin the backup. A confirmation message will appear informing you if the
backup was successful.
A file extension is automatically added to the backup name to identify the company data being
backed up. A file extension of .001, identifies the demonstration database located in the Data01
folder; an extension of .002 will identify the data stored in the folder Data02.
16.2
Restoring the Database
Introduction
Restoring refers to taking the data that you have previously backed up, and overwriting your
existing data files with it. In other words, the data files on your computer are effectively erased and
then replaced with the data on your backup disk(s).
You may want to restore data if your files have been corrupted, or you have made a processing
error which you want to correct, or because you have been advised to do so by a Celeritec support
technician.
Hopefully you shouldn't need to restore your data, but if you do, simply use the Restore wizard to
guide you through this process.
To Restore Your Data

version details will be shown at the bottom of the form..
Backup files have a file extension of .00x, where x is 1 for the demonstration database and 2
your live data. The program automatically assigns the file extension depending on the database
you are logged into.
3. Click Finish [Alt-F] to begin the database restore. Your program data is restored to your hard
drive and the Celeritec Tally Log On form will appear.

Compact Database
Introduction
Database files can grow quickly as you use them, sometimes impeding performance. They can also
occasionally become corrupted or damaged. You can use the Compact and Repair Database
commands in the System Utilities menu to prevent or fix these problems.
Why you compact a database
This overview explains how using the Compact system utility command can help prevent and
correct the following problems that sometimes affect a database: files growing larger with use and
files becoming corrupted.
Database files grow with use
As you add and update data, a database file becomes larger. Some of this growth comes from
new data, but some comes from other sources:
n Celeritec Tally creates temporary, hidden objects to accomplish various tasks. Sometimes, these
temporary objects remain in your database after Celeritec Tally no longer needs them.
n When you delete a database object, the disk space that the object occupied is not automatically
reclaimed — the database file still uses that disk space, even though the object is deleted.
As your database file fills up with the remains of temporary and deleted objects, its performance
can degrade. Objects may open more slowly, queries may take longer than normal to run, and
typical operations generally seem to take longer.
Note: Compacting does not compress your data — it makes your database file smaller by
eliminating unused space.
Database files can become corrupted
In particular circumstances, a database file can become corrupted. If a database file is located on a
network, that file has a small risk of becoming corrupted and the risk can increase over time. You
can mitigate this risk by using the Compact Backend Database and Compact application
commands.
Before you begin
Consider taking the following actions before you begin a compact operation:
n Always make a backup. During the repair process, Celeritec Tally may truncate some data from
tables that are damaged. It is sometimes possible to recover this data from a backup. In addition
to your regular backup strategy, you should make a backup before you use the Compact and
Repair command. You can make a backup by using the Backup Database Wizard.

Reclaiming VAT on Purchases
Guide to Vat Reclaimable Expenses
If your business is VAT registered, then any valid expenditure you make is VAT deductible i.e. you
can reclaim the VAT paid on the purchase in your quarterly VAT return. To qualify an expense as
tax deductible, you must obtain a VAT invoice or receipt for the goods purchased, which must
contain the following information:
n The name & address of the supplier
n The VAT number of the supplier
n The tax date the purchase was made
Without the above information, you are not able to reclaim VAT on the purchase.
Certain goods are classified as zero rated for VAT i.e. there is no VAT charged by the government
on the supply of this product. Examples of zero rated goods are raw foods or foods which require
preparation. For instance, potatoes are zero rated for VAT, but Crisps are subject to Vat at the
normal rate as have been processed from the raw potato. Chilled or frozen ready meals are not
subject to tax, but if they are provided by a caterer and ready to eat then they are taxable!
Examples of zero rated expenditure
n Raw meat and fish;
n Vegetables and fruit;
n Cereals, nuts and pulses; and
n Culinary herbs,
