Collections of receipt templates are available on Vertex42.com and TidyForm.com. Templates are available for use with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Adobe Reader and specialty programs such as those used with portable receipt printers.
To be considered valid financial documents, all receipt templates should contain fields for certain information. The receipt ought to include the date of purchase, generally near the top of the receipt. The document should also include the name and contact information of the seller, as well as the name of the buyer if available. Finally, the receipt should include a description of the goods sold or services rendered, as well as the total amount paid.
