What is GoBD?
GoBD stands for “Grundsätze zur ordnungsmäßigen Führung und Aufbewahrung von Büchern, Aufzeichnungen und Unterlagen in elektronischer Form sowie zum Datenzugriff” (“Basic principles on the proper keeping and storage of financial books, recordings and documents in electronic form as well as data access"). They define in Germany all the requirements that the tax authorities place on accounting and tax-relevant data, whether electronically or in paper form. The guidelines are also laid down here as to how the financial authorities may access electronic data for external audits. If you deal more closely with the topic of the GoBD, you not only know what demands the tax office makes on your accounting, but also what the inspector may or may not do during a tax inspection.
The GoBD have been in force since 1 January 2015. They replaced the previously valid German “Basic principles on data access and verifiability of digital documents” (GDPdU) and the German “Basic principles for proper IT-supported bookkeeping systems” (GoBS).
What is the cash register requirement?
Cash registers have been compulsory in Austria since May 2016. For the purpose of determining the daily cash receipts, all cash takings must be individually recorded with the help of an electronic cash register, a POS system or other electronic recording system. The cash register requirement was created in order to prevent sales “off the books” and to reduce inequalities in competition.
Our POS system is 100 percent tax office-compliant and makes your hospitality business even more successful. orderbird helps you to increase your sales, to improve your use of materials and at the same time use to make your staff work more efficiently – regardless of whether in a café, restaurant, food truck or beer garden.

Since we have been working with orderbird, tax inspections are no longer nerve-wracking. All the data was exported in a matter of seconds and the tax inspector was very satisfied.Café in Frankfurt am Main
