In every transaction, there is bound to be payment made. Whether you purchase some goods or enjoy some service rendered, you will need to make payment for these. In every payment, there should be a receipt given in return to ensure that there is no misunderstanding of the transaction status. For example, when you purchase some products at a store, it is best to get a receipt listing all that you have paid for to avoid shoplifting accusations.
When you enjoy a service from a service provider, which could be an outside meal, repairs or rent payment, you should get a service receipt to confirm your payment. A service receipt is a simple slip of paper which states the payment made for the service rendered with the payment amount, the date the payment was made and a reference number for future checking.
It can be more elaborated if necessary but the essential information should be recorded for disputes not to arise in the future.
A service receipt usually registers:
* Company’s Name & Address
* Company Logo and contact number
* Customer’s Name & Address
* Payment Due Date
* Description of Payment
* Payment amount
* Transaction reference number
* Payment Type
* Payment Method
* Check Number
* Date received
The service receipt is easy to design and use. Its original copy is usually given to the customer or payee while the company can keep a copy for reference purposes.
