A payment voucher is an internal business document which is drawn up each time a request for a payment is made. Supporting documents such as supplier invoices should be attached to it.
The payment voucher forms part of the internal controls of a business and provides a unique reference number for the payment transaction and evidence of the payment request and authorization.
After they are approved, payment vouchers are entered into the cash book which forms part of the double entry system.
