General Receipt

A General Receipt is an acknowledgement that someone has received money, service, property or anything of value. This is an evidence to show that a party has received something.

This document is mostly used in transactions involving the sale of goods, however, it can also be used for documents, goods, and monetary transactions. This document details the particulars of the parties, the description of the goods or property received (if any), the payment received and payment mode (if applicable), etc.

This document does not serve as evidence for payment of rent, however, a rent receipt is available for download.


How to use this document

This document can be used for any type of receipt. Depending on the choice of the form filler, the document provides various forms of receipt such as: Monetary receipt, Document receipt, Goods receipt, or Services receipt. If none of these are the correct categorization, the document has an option for "Other", where the form filler can enter the details of the transaction underlying the receipt.

Here, the form-filler will enter name and address information for each party and then choose the type of receipt. From there, additional details will be asked about the transaction to help fill out the form.

Afterwards, the document must be signed by the recipient of the money or items underlying the receipt. Then, the recipient must issue a signed copy to the other party. Both parties are expected to keep at least one copy for their record.

Applicable law

Various tax laws provide for the issuance of receipts. If the recipient is legally required to collect sales tax or VAT from a customer or client, the amount must be added to the receipt and the collection will be made on to the relevant tax authority.
