A Fiscal report is generated on the POS whenever a new shift is started and covers 24 hours, automatically ending at 5:29 AM the next day. Visit Fiscal Reports from Back Office to see an overview of Fiscal reports created by the POS. Fiscal reports are generated at the end of the day and, as such, are only available after the start of the next day (e.g., today's Fiscal report will be visible tomorrow).
