Basic Tip:Require that all transferred in merchandise, especially from another store location, be piece counted in before accepting into inventory.

Advanced Tip:Ensure there is a secondary count of received transferred in merchandise and retain all necessary paperwork for future validation if needed.

Basic Tip: Cash register functions like “No Sales”, “Cancels”, “Voids” and/or “Post Voids” should be only conducted by managers or approved by managers. If these transactions are able to be completed by employees, consider having a manager’s signature and/or reason for completion part of the authorization process for those transactions.

Advanced Tip: At the end of the night – all register transactions like cancels, no sales, voids and returns should be accounted for through a reconciliation process (such as store retained receipts compared to a closing day report summary). Any discrepancy should be investigated and reviewed with that “at fault” employee.
