A cash audit is a process by which you compare the sales records with the amount of money in cash, vouchers, returns and card payments. In this process, the current amount on the cash-drawer is reported minus the initial amount. The purpose of a cash audit is to look for accounting mistakes and try to rectify them.

This option is only available if the store has the Cash audit option enabled, which allows performing the terminal cashaudit.

When a cash audit is performed, the system requires the employee to inform the initial amount available at the terminal.

The reports generated by the cash audits, which are the result of verifying the declared and actual amount, can be retrieved and printed.
