When making transactions, there should always be a document supporting this. This way, both parties will be able to protect themselves from legal problems. One of the documents that you can use to document transactions is the receipt.
Receipts are sheets of paper issued by a person (seller) to another who is giving the payment (buyer) to acknowledge that a transaction has been made and the seller was able to receive payment from the buyer. As a buyer, it is very important to always ask for a receipt; and as a seller, we should also make it a habit to issue receipts to our clients. Here on our website, we have a collection of different receipt templates for you to choose from.

Make It a Habit
A receipt should contain all the necessary information from the transaction. Since receipts may be used as evidence for transactions that took place, having a properly filled-up receipt might just protect you from any legal complaints. Thankfully, the templates on our website contain all those necessary fields to guide you, if you are planning to make your own personalized receipt.
Most receipts usually contain the following details:
- Name of the person giving the payment
- Date the payment was given by the payer
- The exact amount of the money paid in words
- The exact amount of payment in numeric form (usually enclosed in a parenthesis)
- The denominations used as well as the quantity for each denomination
- The purpose of the payment
- The name and the signature of the person issuing the receipt
Why Are Receipts Important?
Receipts serve as legal proofs of purchase and may be used if you need to have something exchanged or returned. Receipts can help keep track of how much money is spent and where we this is spent on. Receipts can also be used for reimbursement purposes, especially for medical reimbursements programs your employer has.
Upon issuing a copy of the receipt to the buyer, a duplicate copy is also written for the issuer’s safekeeping. This way, the issuer can also keep track on the how many receipts have been issued and to whom.
