Operational expenses can be recorded when closing the shift, make sure you have activated the Shift feature (Opening & Closing Shift) to use this feature. Operational expenses need to be recorded by cashiers, so that when closing the shift, they can be calculated accurately with the corresponding income and expenses that occur in that shift session.

Common Expenses Might Include:

  • Cost of goods sold for ordinary business operations.

  • Wages, salaries, commissions, other labor (i.e. per-piece contracts)

  • Repairs and maintenance.

  • Rent.

  • Utilities (i.e. heat, A/C, lighting, water, telephone)

  • Insurance rates.

  • Payable interest.

  • Bank charges/fees.

Before registering shift expense and using it, make user that the user has activated the shift module before. Read this article to enable the shift module: Enable/Disable Shift Module.
