Sage 50 Initial POS Setup – STEP 3 – Create a Tender Summary Account

The Tender Summary allows the splitting of the different tendering totals from a particular day’s sales (for example, splitting up all MasterCard transaction totals from Cash transactions totals). 

When Sales information is sent into Sage 50 US, all the information goes into the Tender Summary account and from there, it moves into specified GL Accounts. 

More information on that is later on in the guide. To create a Tender Summary account:

  1. Go to Maintain  Chart of Accounts.  The Maintain Chart of Accounts window appears.

    menu chart of accounts

  1. In the Account ID field, enter a GL Account number to assign to the Tender Summary account. 

    AccuPOS recommends using the account number 95000 since the number is not one of or close to one of the default account numbers set up by Sage 50 US.

The Tender Summary also serves as an audit trail. 

The balance of the account must always be $0.00. 

Every day after Sage 50 US is updated by AccuPOS, make sure to check the balance of Tender Summary.

If is remains at $0.00, the sales information was imported correctly. 

If it is either positive or negative, contact your dealer or AccuPOS Technical Support immediately.
