A receipt voucher is an internal business supporting document which is drawn up each time cash or cheques are received by the business. Supporting documents such as customer invoices should be attached to it.
A copy of the receipts voucher is usually given to the person the money is received from.
The receipt voucher forms part of the internal controls of a business and provides a unique reference number for the receipt transaction and evidence of who the receipt was received from and by.
After they are approved, receipt vouchers are entered into the cash book which forms part of the double entry system.
