When a server using a “staff bank” closes out the staff bank, the closing report will ask for an amount of cash due from server. This amount, as I understand it, is the amount of cash sales, minus any gratuities. However, sometimes the gratuities are larger than the amount of cash sales, and the report states an amount that is owed to the server. My question is this – does the POS automatically subtract this amount owed to the server from the total cash on hand?

If you owe money to the server on their cashier out report, then whatever is in their pocket plus what you owe them is their tips for the day. If the server owes the restaurant money then they take their cash for the day subtract what they owe the restaurant and that is what they have made for the day.
