Sales / Cash Banked
Question asked by Steven Graham 8 years ago
Hi folks, I've been onto the support team a couple of times today and they have been very helpful but I haven't had my issue resolved and it's likely I'm not describing it well over the phone. I hoped to reach out to the clearbooks community as a last ditch attempt for help.
My problem is with recording weekly sales and cash banked. We are a hair salon and so raising an invoice for every sale isn't possible.
Our sales total and the cash banked is different as we use cash at the till for sundries - magazines, milk, tea bags etc.
My understanding is that the best way to do this is to create a Cash Sales account and do a money in transaction to record the weekly sales (before sundries have come off), at the end of our week, on a Saturday. I then create a Bill for sundries.
So our weekly sales are £1000, and we've spent £20 on sundries. We bank £980 on Monday.
I have created a money in transaction for £1000 into cash sales, and have created a bill for £20 for the spend. I have imported a bank statement showing the £980 banked.
Is someone able to take me through what I do next? I would imagine I need the cash sales to be reduced by the £980 and I'll pay the £20 sundries bill from cash sales as that never hit the bank.
I appreciate anyone taking the time to help as I am completely stumped. Cheers, Steven.
