Balancing the till


Balancing your tills is essential to any retail business. It actually should be part of your daily routine, but now suddenly you sense that something is not right and you want to balance the till. This is where we use X-offs,

What we strongly suggest is that every cashier has their cash drawer. There is no problem as our system allows many tills to work on one computer,

At the start of each shift, the staff member gets the float. This can be easily balanced at any time.

Go to the End of Day section in the cash register and select X-offs

With this summary of sales what will get extra information which may help with your investigations such is the net sales, voids, paid ins/outs, taxes, the breakdown of various methods of payment and more.

Select on the end of day page choose the X-off option that is below the EOD option marked in green. Select the time the staff member assigned to the register started and the current time. You now run the report.

Now it’s time to count your cash.

When balancing lookout for overages and shortages, an overage is not to be ignored as it can mean that people are not recording all their sales. If so, why are they not recording all the transactions?
