Weekly Staff Rota Planner
This release introduces a new weekly staff rota planner. This rota, often called a roster or schedule, functions similarly to the existing wage sheets and will be immediately familiar to anyone who has used that.
The rota sheet is a list of employees, split into separate Manager, Bar, Kitchen and Cleaner Staff tables. Each day includes a start time, end time, and optional break time for that shift. This is used to calculate the working times.
Planned updates to the existing rota include,
- Rota template for regular staff and shift patterns
- Wage Budget Report, calculated cost and percentages
- Print Rota Sheet as PDF
Temporary reduced rate of 12.5% VAT
In the 2021 Budget, the Chancellor announced that the temporary reduced rate of 5% VAT would be extended to 30 September 2021. From 1 October 2021, the reduced rate for these supplies will be replaced by the introduction of a new reduced rate of 12.5% VAT. This will remain in effect until 31 March 2022.
For clients using Cash Sheets on Raven, they’ll see new Sales lines automatically added from 1 October 2021 for Liquor, Food and Accommodation (as applicable) for this new VAT rate.
