Is this really an issue? If it were then wouldn’t an inspector be knocking on door of every food outlet in the country as we speak?
I think the very fact these errors do happen is because owners know HMRC can’t expect them to micromanage the till operator and get every sale 100% perfect for VAT - for the very reasons you listed.
I wouldn’t be worried, but then again I’m not an owner of such a business!
