Gather Data on Cash Counting

Usually, after the shift closes, employees have to do a cash count. At the beginning of each day, there is a generated register, where all the data about cash is entered. It ensures that you have enough money to give a change to your customers.

Count the money on all receipts, checks, and cards so that there is no confusion. To make the process less tedious, consider investing in a counting machine. Don’t forget to deduct your starting balance from your current one. In the end, all amounts must match your online system.

By the way, this report consists of the following columns:

  • Coins
  • Currency
  • Sale

Write down the final amount. If you are missing some money, count again. If you keep this result, it is better to contact your boss.

  • Recalculate all means, checks, and receipts
