What is a Z Report?

Point of Sale (POS) Glossary

A Z Report is a detailed history printout of the transactions for a point of sale register. In most POS systems, initiating a Z Report triggers closing out the register. Z reports should be run at the end of a shift or the day.

Z Reports detail a lot of helpful information and may include sales, returns, times the POS register was opened without sales, the payment methods used, and more. The financials the daily Z Reports provide are key indicators of a store’s performance.

Today’s robust point of sale systems have advanced reporting that keeps track of an indefinite period of time. This reporting can be used instead of having to aggregate data from daily Z reports and multiple registers.
