The ea-Geier is a multi-user-multi-client system. Which means, the system can handle the accounting of multiple companies (clients) with access for multiple users at the same time. e.g. an entrepreneur might want to do separated accounting for his or her company and and for his or her personal accounting, thus he or she needs two “clients”; or an accountant uses the system for multiple customers and adds a client for each customer.

Choose the data format you want to use to enter the dates of your records. There are two formats available: DD.MM.YYYY (e.g. 30.04.2007) and YYYY-MM-DD (e.g. 2007-04-30).

With accounts, income and expenditure categories you can define the categories for payment type, income and expenditure distributors. Use a comma (,) as delimiter. Attention: If you delete a category with assigned records, the system will continue to use this category till all those records have been reassigned.

With VAT rates you can defined the tax rates used in the system. Numerical values are used to automatically calculate net and tax values from gross values and vice versa. Use a comma (,) as delimiter. For non-integer rates please use a dot (.) e.g. for Switzerland 7.6,3.6,2.4,0,x. Attention: Assigned rates stay valid till all records have been reassigned.

The number format used in the system is defined by decimal places and decimal point. Attention: If you change the number of decimal places after you started entering records, there could be rounding errors. e.g. if you have entered originally 100.00 gross and 8.33 net and you change the system to three decimal places, the new values will be 100.000 gross and 8.330 net. However, the correct values for 20 % VAT would be either 100.000 gross and 8.333 net or 9.996 gross and 8.330 net.

The mileage rate is the default value to calculate the mileage allowance for the traveling expenses. This value can be changed individually for each single travel. Attention: Please enter the value using a dot as decimal point.
