CASH DRAWER BALANCING
by Pascale Gamache
When balancing cash register, what is an acceptable discrepancy ( cash over or short)?
For me? Zero!
You should be able to balance a cash register to the penny, otherwise you're losing money.
That said, if you're "comfortable" losing 5 cents a day, or 5 bucks a day...that's purely a personal decision.
I would work on fine tuning your process, though, so you know why it's not balancing. Someone isn't giving correct change?
Hope that helps!
