German companies particularly affected by Covid-19 can apply for funding for digital investments such as hotel software, online booking systems, channel manager connectivity and the like with Bridging Grant III, a one-time grant of up to €20,000.
On 31.03.2021, the non-objection period ends in Germany for the lack of connection of a technical security device (TSE) to accounting systems with cash register function, which also includes hotel software / PMS, if cash invoices can be created with it. Hotels, guesthouses and other accommodation establishments that have not yet ordered a TSE to protect their systems from manipulation are acting unlawfully and risk high penalties and a tax assessment.

With the recently released Lodgit Desk Update 2.4.5, similar accommodation services (lodging & extras) can finally be grouped together in offers, confirmations and invoices. This makes these documents much clearer and shorter at the same time reduces the size of any PDF files sent by e-mail.
Due to the ongoing pandemic many governments around the world are changing VAT rates for businesses from the 1st of January 2021. Users of Lodgit Desk will find it simple to change to these new VAT rates inside the software. Learn more about rate changes in Germany and how to set up the software to reflect the new tax changes.
Health and Peace for the World
The year 2020 is coming to an end and will always be remembered for the many events and major challenges. Despite current adversities, we were able to achieve our most important business goal by connecting a technical security equipment (TSE) to Lodgit Desk.
Version 2.4.1 of Lodgit Desk hotel software was released today. Our software now offers you the ability to connect to a certified Technical Safety Equipment (TSE) as an optional additional module. The TSE, which is required in Germany, communicates with Lodgit Desk for each business transaction, creates signed receipts and saves this data so that it can be evaluated in a later audit by the tax office (e.g. tax audit or cash check).
News that affects our German customers: Before the BMF's non objection period for the implementation of a certified technical safety device (TSE) in electronic recording systems officially ends on 30.09.2020, we will briefly inform you about the current state of development for the connection of a TSE to Lodgit Desk.
Beta testing began 2 weeks ago with selected customers, who have been helping us in troubleshooting and fault-finding with the software. In this time, cash invoices with various Epson TSEs have been successfully signed by our testers, whom we would like to thank very much.
News for our German customers: the government mandated certified Technical Safety Equipment (TSE) is now available via our website. For those who are still unsure of what they require, we have created a support page (in German) where you are helped to find the TSE that is right for you. If you already know which TSE you require, you can simply select the desired model here and fill out the online order form.
Despite Corona, we have been working flat out over the last few months on the interface to the legally required connection of a certified Technical Safety Equipment (TSE) to the Lodgit Desk hotel software. As of mid-August, you can easily order a certified TSE from Epson via our website. At the same time, the BETA test will start with some selected customers.
