Financial Information

The features of this window are available to use but are not required. If exporting sales information to your accounting software, you will need to enter the details as below.

Field Details
Sales Date (Greyed Out) Indicates the date of sales.
Cash In Drawer It is the total amount of money (cash, check, and credit card receipts), including tax collected, that you should have in your till and the end of the day. Most cash registers and POS systems are set up to include tax collected into this number. If yours is not, you must add the tax into this total so that Gross and Net Sales are calculated correctly.
Cash Payouts Many times, you may pay cash out of the till for incidental expenses. If you do not want to detail the payouts, enter the accumulated total dollar amount of payouts for the day. If you would like to detail the payouts. We strongly recommend that you detail the payouts as the information you detail here will appear on your G/L report.
Taxes (the taxes that you set up in the Taxes and Adjustments Preferences) Enter the total amounts of each of the taxes here. Remember to make sure that the corresponding taxes in the Chart of Accounts match these names.
Variance This variance will need to be 0 to balance the calculated category sales from POS imports to the left. Adjust amounts as necessary.
Comps Indicate the amount given for complimentary dishes.
Promo If you run specials in your restaurant, enter the total discounted amount here.
Employee Discount This field is where you indicate the amount you discounted from your regular price for employees. Your cash register or POS system should keep track of this total. Most employers give their employees a 50% or 25% discount.
Other Discounts Enter any other discounts you may give throughout the day such as senior's discounts or special group discounts. Make sure you enter the discounted amount from the regular price and not the total amount of the discounted sales. The numbers you indicate in these discounted fields are going to be added by Optimum Control to achieve gross sales.
Gross and Net Sales Both gross sales and net sales are automatically calculated when sales are entered. The formula for this is Cash CID (cash in drawer) + Cash Payouts + Specials + Coupons + Discounts (employee and other) - All Taxes = Gross Sales. The Net Sales are Calculated as Gross Sales - (Coupons, Discounts, and Specials).
