Spanish term or phrase: cierre contable
This term is used in a manual for a credit card terminal (for store in-store purchases).

One context is:
"Se entiende por sesion el periodo de tiempo comprendido entre dos cierres contables".

I am thinking of translating to "point of sale" or "closing of sale".

Will go with accounting close. I also liked day-end close,
but my text does not specify day, year or month.

auto batch time report


Explanation:
an auto batch time report is a short report issued by the credit card terminal overnight (every night) of all of the credit card transactions run over said terminal. So, the "cierre contable" is in effect this report of acctivities over a 24 hour period.

From my own experience with my credit card terminal
