Why Is a Receipt Important?
Is there really any meaning to having receipts? Why bother having them at all?
Well, believe it or not, receipts present and play an important role in businesses and institutions. One may say that receipts are just a play made by corporate bosses and government higher-ups to control its subservients. (And I honestly cannot blame them.)
However, for every system or form or semblance of such in society, a substantial amount of control has to be in place. Receipts are part of the basis for taxation. Taxation predates Christ and has been working ever since in exchange for developments and public services made available to the citizens.
A receipt therefore is important mainly due to the following reasons:
- A receipt is a proof or evidence of a transaction or sale. In this context, it can be used even in legal proceedings in the event, say for example, of dissatisfaction of a product, commodity, or service. It is also applicable for businesses in updating policies for their employees. An employee who has signed a policy effectively makes the document a policy receipt and therefore considered as a binding agreement to the terms and conditions stipulated in that document.
- Records and reports are generated from the information contained in receipts. Businesses track their sales and expenses through receipts. Having actual documents in connection to transactions make it easier in keeping records up to date.
- Tax information can be obtained from accumulated sales and purchase records. Tax is calculated based on the income and expenditure of a company or business. Depending on how much you make, which can be known from the record of sales, corresponding tax can either increase or decrease.

- Transportation and Vehicle Related Expenses – Every expense related to the use of a vehicle must be accounted for as tax based on parentage of use. Make sure to record the date and the reason for such use.
- Business Trips – As with vehicle expenses, expenses made during business trips have to be tracked and recorded in connection with official business expenses.
- Meals and Entertainment – Receipts relating to business meetings involving out of office meetings such as restaurants have to be recorded. Commonly, persons attending and purpose of meeting are written at the back of such receipts.

Receipts to Keep in Paying Taxes
There is an advantage in knowing which receipts to keep in connection to paying your tax receipt. Any additional refund from the taxes should be a welcome opportunity for any honest and hard working taxpayer earning a decent and modest living.
- Medical Receipts – Most medical expenses are deductible on your personal income tax return. Some have to be qualified but there really is something there. You just have to know which ones can be.
- Childcare Expenses – If you are unable to attend to a child because you have work and need to hire a babysitter then expenses for that can be credited but can only be claimed for children under 13 years of age or depending on which country and the requirement age for being dependent.
- Self-Employment Expenses – If you are self employed, all purchases relating to your owned business must be kept.
Depending on any individual’s tax situation, the application of sales tax to itemized deductions may be advantageous rather than income taxes withheld from your pay. Deduction of sales tax benefits a person making large purchases in that tax year.
