Accountability is the key to cash control
Reduce or eliminate cash shortages or overages. The first step to accountability is to audit a register by filling out all the information on the cash register audit form. Then, document the shortage or overage and explain why the register is short or over. Also, include the employee’s response to why the register is short or over. Basically, you need to investigate the shortage or overage. Finally, you never settle for ” I don’t know why I am short or over.” There is always a reason for the money difference.
The second page has some basic instructions. It also includes some great tips in the prevention of cash shortages.
