  1. Till Count 1
  2. Sub Total 2
  3. Complete 3
  4. Diff 4

Count the physical cash in your till.

Important

Be sure to deduct the value of your float if applicable

Enter the value into the 'Till Count' input box.

Notice the 'Difference' figure changes.

Do the same for every other payment type listed.
