Recount

The recount function allows you to enter details for the current cash amount in the register, in order to check that the register total is still correct and to record or update any discrepancy.

To use the recount feature, you simply need to count the number of each type of note or coin in the register and enter the totals into the boxes provided. As you enter the totals, the two discrepancy amounts at the bottom of the form (shown in red on the screenshot) will update:

- Discrepancy Since Opening shows the total discrepancy since the cash register was opened (usually the start of your trading day)

- Discrepancy Since Last Count shows the relative change in discrepancy since the last recount. If this is the first time a recount has been performed today (or if there was no previous discrepancy), the two figures will be the same.

When you have accounted for all the money in the register, add a note if required and press Count to trigger the usual printable receipt to finish the process.

Once you finish, a Recount entry will be added to the Cash Register journal to show the cash amount you counted:

If there was any discrepancy since the last count, the relative discrepancy will also be added to the Cash Register journal:

Note

The count function records the relative discrepancy since the last count was performed. This is not necessarily the same as the entire discrepancy recorded since the register was first opened!

Relative Discrepancy Examples

To illustrate how the Discrepancy Since Last Count figure may change throughout the day, or even show a zero value when there is an overall discrepancy, consider these examples:
