In this article, we will explain the difference between an invoice and a receipt.
What is an invoice?
- An invoice is the request for payment that you receive from your suppliers.
- An invoice should state the following:
- Who sends the invoice (CVR number)
- What you have purchased
- The amount and percentage of VAT
- Payment information
- Some invoices (“PBS”) are pulled directly from the bank account. These are, however, treated the same way as an invoice in Keepers
- If something is wrong on the invoice, you should ask for a credit note
- Invoices, “PBS” and credit notes are to be sent to Roger
What is a receipt?
- A receipt
is a confirmation of the purchase that you have made. They are usually a piece
of paper, but can also be electronically stored in a PDF format.
- The receipt
should state the following:
- The date
of the purchase
- What you
- The amount
and percentage of VAT
- How the
vendor received the money
- A receipt shouldn’t
be paid, as it is already a confirmation of a purchase
should be sent to either Roger or the Keepers app – Outlay
