    Hi, you could also check sales against the sales order and the goods dispatched note (the source documents)..

    Transactional tests are:
    1) Agreeing cash in tills to the till rolls
    2) Agreeing till rolls to the daily takings sheet (if applicable)
    3) Agreeing daily takings sheet to bank statement

    Analytical procedures are:
    1) Reviewing previous months sales figures and compare with current months figure
    2) Comparing the sales figure to the purchases figure and check if reasonable

    Hope this helps....
