Counting and correcting your cash register drawer is a necessary process for any business. Owners and managers need to check that the money taken in equals that amount of sales made. Theft can be controlled by counting your drawer at the beginning and end of each cashier's shift. This method allows for accountability among your staff. To count a cash register drawer you will simply need to add up all your receipts and add up all your cash and credit card slips. These numbers should match exactly.
