Recording overages and shortages on sales summaries

When you enter your summary sales receipt, the sales receipt total should be zero.

  • If the sales receipt total is a negative number after you've entered all of your daily sales information, you have an overage. An overage is when the amount of your payment items is greater than the amount of your sales items on the sales receipt. To record an overage, enter overage in the Item column, and then enter the amount necessary to zero out the sales receipt. Since the total is a negative value, the overage number will be the same value expressed as a positive number.

  • If the sales receipt total is a positive number after all of your daily sales information is entered, you have a shortage. The amount of your payment items is less than the amount of your sales items. To record a shortage, enter shortage in the Item column and enter the amount necessary to zero out the sales receipt. Since the total is a positive value, the shortage number will be the same value expressed as a negative number.
