Actions after POS shift is closed

At the end of the shift, you analyse the cash up report to check the cash in the drawer, as well as payments received by credit card, cheque, vouchers, etc. and that there are no shortages or surpluses.

Once this is done, you need to do the following:

1.Set the float aside for the next POS shift and process a Journal (preferably a POS Journal or batch) to debit the POS-Cash transfer amount for the float amount and credit the POS-Till account 

2.Prepare a bank deposit slip for the amount of cash, cheques, etc. you need to bank. This amount should be the balance of the POS-Till account (Sales for the day or shifts). 

3.When the deposit slip is presented to the bank and it is stamped, it needs to be entered in the Receipts Journal for the bank account in which the monies were deposited. When this deposit slip is entered in the Receipts journal, it should be allocated to the POS-Till account. 

4.Once the POS Journal and the Receipts journal is posted to the ledger, the Cash sales (Cash customer), POS-CASH transfer and the POS-Till account should not reflect any balances.
