It’s amazing how many small and even medium sized business owners still use pen and paper to record store transactions. Each transaction is recorded using carbon paper, one receipt goes to the customer and another is filed away in a cabinet at the back of the store. At the end of the day the till is counted and money is deposited to the safe and the remaining cash goes to the bank. When it comes to the end of the month/quarter/year purchase orders, invoices and bank deposit slips are counted. Now it’s time to call the accountant, pay your rent, pay your employees and other business related expenses. After taxes you get the leftovers.
