Using a petty cash float top up
When you operate a fixed float for petty cash (called an imprest) then the amount you top up is always equal to the amount that you spent. For example, if the float level is $100, and $80 has been spent, the cash balance remaining is $20 and and further $80 is needed to take the float balance back to the level of $100.
This form lists out all the payments made since the previous top up, as the basis for requesting the next top up. Use it every time you wish to top up your petty cash float, so that signatories can know what the money was spent on before withdrawing more cash from the bank.
