A Receipt is a written acknowledgment, signed by the receiver and delivered to the giver, showing that certain property (money or goods, or both) has been received.



Every word which expresses number, unless connected with preceding word by a hyphen, may or may not begin with a capital. But there should be uniformity in this particular in papers drawn by same parties. The amount of money received is. written in figures in the left-hand corner.

There are three kinds of receipts: (1) Receipts in Full; (2) Receipts on Account, and (3) Receipts to Apply on Particular Accounts.

The first is given when the payment is a complete settlement; the second, when partial payment of a debt is made; the third, when there are more accounts than one between the persons, and the payment is intended to apply to a particular one.
