When you receive a payment from a customer, especially if the payment is in cash, you may be asked to provide a receipt. A receipt could be just a statement written out by hand or torn out of a receipt book that you purchase from your office supply company. But, you can also create and print your own customized receipt forms using our free receipt templates.
Describe the Purchase. For each item you sold, write a description, a price, any discount applied and the total amount paid. Sum the amount paid for all items, enter any state sales tax you are required to collect and put a grand total on the receipt. Write "Method of Payment," and indicate whether you received cash, a check or payment from a credit card. A comment at the bottom of the receipt -- such as "Thank You for Your Business!" -- adds a nice touch.
What are the differences between a payment receipt and a sales receipt?
A payment receipt is a proof of payment. It is mostly for the buyer rather than for the business. It is typically not used in accounting for digital products. A payment receipt lets a buyer be sure that their payment was received by the business.
By contrast, a sales receipt (a.k.a simplified invoice) is a bill or (request for payment if that payment has not already happened). Sales receipts must contain a more detailed breakdown of the costs and taxes involved, as well as information about the business. They also must have a unique receipt number and a few other strict requirements. Unlike an invoice, it does not require customer information, making for less form field to fill out at checkout for your customers (as long as the transaction falls beneath the threshold required by your tax authority).
There is usually no set form for a receipt, such as a requirement that it be machine generated. Many point-of-sale terminals or cash registers can automatically produce receipts. Receipts may also be generated by accounting systems, be manually produced or generated electronically, for example if there is not a face-to-face transaction. To reduce the cost of postage and processing, many businesses do not mail receipts to customers, unless specifically requested or required by law, with some transmitting them electronically. Others, to reduce time and paper, may endorse an invoice, account or statement as "paid".
