Not Exceed Purchase

When posting a check payment, if the amount tendered is greater than the Amount Due, the system can generate a cash back amount for the customer. If your business policy does not allow the customer to write a check for more than the purchase amount, check this option.

If the sales clerk indeed accepts a check for more than the purchase and overrides the system's controls, then the drawer reconciliation will show that cash is understated (short) and checks are overstated (over).
