    Unhappy How should I say as a receptionist?

    Dear teachers

    I used to work in a hotel as a receptionist.
    I did not know then and still are wondering how to say
    "you owe us nothing" politely when the
    non-Japanese guests check out.

    So I kept saying something like;
    "You have nothing to pay."
    "There is no balance left on your bill."
    "There is nothing to be paid."
    And I knew none of above were polite enough
    as a hotel receptionist.
    What should I have said?

    Thank you in advance.

    The usual phrase in AmE to indicate that the bill is paid in full and nothing more is owed is simply "You're all set."
