Receipts created in word processing software and those generated with accounting software contain similar information. Follow these steps to create a receipt of payment using word processing software.

  1. Enter the date of the sale in the upper right hand corner of the document.
  2. Include the customer’s name and address on the receipt if required.
  3. Next, use your software’s table creation tool to create a table. The table should have as many lines as items purchased.
  4. Enter the quantity of the products or services purchased, as well as the product numbers and prices. Each item or service purchased should have its own line on the receipt.
  5. Calculate the cost of all items purchased and enter this number, the subtotal, below the items purchased.
  6. Add any fees and taxes to the subtotal for a total cost of sale, and print the receipt.
