Calculating the contents of the drawer of cash register is necessary for any business. Generally, the managers of owners of business need to check that the money taken in the drawer equals that amount of sales made. In this case, this step is done to stop the theft. That is why, it is suggested for the owners to count the drawer in the beginning and end of every cashier's shift.
To calculate the drawer of cash register, what you need is only adding up all receipts and all cash and credit card slips. These amounts have to exactly match.
To calculate the money from the cash register, first of all, you should calculate the cash in the drawer. This step should be done in the beginning of your employee's shift.
Secondly, you can write the total number of money on the sheet of cash-out under the slot of "Start Cash Total". In the end of your shift, you should also calculate the cash in the drawer and write the total in the cash-out sheet's "End Cash Total" box.
You should also total all of the sales of the credit card for the shift. Then, you can insert the total in the cash-out sheet's "Credit Card Sales" slot.
The next step is adding both "End Cash Total" and "Credit Card Sales" slots. Then, write this total below the box of "Total Sales" on the cash-out sheet.
Then, you can ask for a manager to help you print the cash registers log for the shift. The log is defined as a record of each sale that is made during the shift.
Finally, note your log's total sales number on the cash-out sheet. The total sales of your logs have to be suitable with the slot of "Total Sales" after you have subtracted the "Start Cash Total" from the box of "Total Sales".
