Too often in Scouts, we simply "trust" someone to handle cash. After
all, they're Scouts, aren't they "trustworthy?"
Any handling of money should follow a few simple internal control
measures (standard business practices). For a trading post operation
these should include, at a minimum:
One person handles the money. Dupicate receipts are written for all
purchases. On closing, the total of the receipts should equal the
cash on hand, less any "change" money provided up front. The money
handler is responsible for any difference.
Alternately, each person who takes money should have a separate
receipt book and cash box/apron.
