Change of petty cash administrator

In the event that the person responsible for administering petty cash should change, or the role holder will be absent (e.g. on holiday), the person taking over should ensure a suitable handover is done. The Petty Cash Handover form must be completed in all instances.
If the petty cash administrator is part-time and there is a requirement for petty cash outside their normal working hours then it is recommended the petty cash float is split between two role holders.
The Accounts Receivable team, as well as the Cash Management team and cashiers should be notified of the change in petty cash administrator.
