A Register Closure signals the end of a shift on the register. For most stores, the end of a shift is the end of a day and allows you to compare what money the system has recorded versus what you actually received. Performing a Register Closure is especially important if you have an integrated accounting system or are in a banner group which you send your scan data to, as closing the register will activate the sending of your sales data.
To Perform a Register Closure
- Select the Menu icon
- Select Close Register
- This screen shows the expected money in your drawer and several other useful pieces of information such as the returns and account sales this shift
- Enter the total amount of money you have received for each payment method
- Different payment methods have different calculation options available, for example the Cash payment method provides a calculator to assist you with counting your cash for each denomination and minusing the float from the total (see link for information on how to How to Set a Float for Each Day of the Week)
- Once you have entered all of your received amounts, select Close Register
After closing the register you will be brought to a reporting summary of the register closure and will be able to print out this summary if required, this summary will always be available for future reference under Reports > Register Closures in the Menu.
