Customer tabs in Restaurant POS can be paid off in full or in part using the Overview panel or the Tab Paid payment method.
In order to close tabs in the Overview panel, you must accept full payment for the tab balance. If you want to take partial payment for these tabs, transfer the tab to a customer account using the Put on Tab payment method. See Charging a payment to a customer tab for more information. Once it's been transferred to a customer account you can then accept partial payment using the Tab Paid payment method.

Impact on reports
When you take a payment using the Tab Paid payment method, the amount will appear as a negative in your Day Reports and Closing Reports and will decrease the total revenue. This balances out the positive revenue from when the original receipt was paid with the Put on Tab payment method. See Charging a payment to a customer tab for more information.
To create a consolidated invoice for all unpaid receipts on a customer's tab, see Setting up customer invoicing.
