kleine Kasse
Explanation:
This is what Schäfer proposes for float. A float is the small change in the till - it's usually filled up each morning, say in a supermarket, so that the cashiers can give enough change. I've not heard this German term before though, maybe wait and see what other responses you get.

Thank you for your assistance. I was also hoping for other answers after I had found 'kleine Kasse' in another dictionary but had never heard it ... so obviously there are no other answers!
