In certain places around the world, taxi drivers will issue receipts to passengers hiring their services. This may surprise you, but it is especially useful for people going abroad on business. An official receipt issued by the cab driver after the fare is paid will allow an employee’s company to reimburse trips taken for business purposes.
In business capitals around the world, from Mumbai to Manila and elsewhere, it is good economic practice for taxi operators to start using taxi receipts. And indeed they are using such receipts.

But not all taxis provide receipts, nor are they required to. They might merely use a meter or a standard service rate decided locally.
There are situations and business styles that will require using a service receipt.
