    Cash Short and Over

    When using a cash register, employeessometimes make mistakes in collecting cash or

    making change for customers. If the cash registerdoes not reconcile by a small amount at the endof the day, we use an account called cash short

    and over to force a balance.

    Assume a cash

    register was to havea balance of $500,but contained only$499 at the end of

    the day.

    Account Title Debit Credit

    Using Petty Cash Funds

    A petty cash fund is used to make smallexpenditures that cannot wait for the formal check-writing process. The fund is operated on an imprest

    basis. This means that when the fund gets low oncash it is replenished. The petty cashier is alwaysresponsible for the cash in the fund. This is an

    excellent internal control.
