TO BALANCE THE CASH DRAWER
1. Total the columns on the Daily Finance sheet, A - 18
2. Count the cash in the cash drawer using the cash count sheet. It looks like this:
3. The TOTAL on the cash count sheet in the "end of
shift" column should match the TOTAL at the bottom
of the Finance Sheet. (That is, the cash in the drawer at
the beginning of your shift plus the amount collected
during your shift).
4. Record the amount in the cash drawer, at the bottom of
the finance sheet in the space for the end of your shift, and
sign it. If you have more than $80.00 in bills in the drawer
at the end of your shift, put part of it in an envelope with a
note indicating your day and shift, and lock it in the
workroom. Envelopes are in a drawer to your far left. The
finance sheet for the next shift will begin with the smaller
If these two TOTALS are NOT the same:
1. Check to be sure all items written on the finance sheet
have an amount in the proper column (except credit
2. Add the finance sheet again (use calculator on counter)
3. Count the cash in the drawer again.
4. Check film orders in the drawer received during your shift to be sure they were entered on the finance
5. Check cash drawer for fee slips paid (for microfiche or film arrivals from requests to film) to be sure
they were recorded.
6. Try to recall supplies sold and not recorded.
7. Check to be sure the same item isn't recorded twice
If the mistake still hasn't been found, write a note on the daily finance sheet indicating the amount you are
short or over and sign your name.
