What is a General Receipt?

You get a receipt when you go shopping, right? A General Receipt is the same thing. Use it if you or your business purchased goods or services, signed a document, or you personally gave something of value to a family member or friend. In all cases, you can use this General Receipt template to create proof of the transaction for your records. 
When you give or get something of value it's a good idea to create a general receipt form so you can keep an account of it. A General Receipt is a written acknowledgement that money, property, a document, or anything of value has been received. It creates a record and proof of the transaction. Details of the General Receipt include the date of the transaction, the money or property received, and if the transaction is a full payment for goods or services. Itemized receipts are a key part of ledgers and financial statements. They also create a record that prevents future disputes about the details of the transaction.

When to use a General Receipt:

  • You want to provide written proof that a person or organization has received money, property, or a document from you.
  • You want to obtain written proof from someone that you have given money, property, or a document to a person or organization.
