Follow this example of a receipt to create your own. It shows what belongs on a receipt, and where those pieces of information go.
Example receipt format
Receipts open with customer and supplier details, then list the goods or services sold. Prices are added together at the end, along with taxes if they apply. The amount paid is then subtracted from the total.
Receipts must be offered every time a customer or client pays a business. We’ve shown two examples below; one for VAT registered businesses and one for those not registered. If you’re not VAT registered, leave the VAT rate field empty rather than entering 0.
