What to Do With Your Till Reconciliation Variances

The purpose of this guide is to explain what Till Variances are and advise what you may want to do with them.

NOTE: The full guide on how to do a Till Reconciliation can be found here;

Till variances are the variances in what the system tallied as your total till transactions, compared to the actual amount which you counted & entered. When you do your Till Reconciliation, you may have counted your takings and have a variance. Till Variances over time could amount to quite a lot of money so to keep track of the total till variances then clear them off your Expenses GL once you have claimed them, follow this guide.

This guide has been broken up into 3 parts- Recording your Variances, Tracking them and Clearing them.
