A receipt is one of the oldest and most legally binding documents still in use today. Whatever you are purchasing, a receipt of any kind immediately gives consumers a whole host of rights when it comes to the item they have just purchased. It is always worth getting a receipt and it also protects the seller too, so here are a few tips on how to write a receipt for a car.

To begin, write the date of sale at the top of the document. The correct date refers to the day the receipt was made and the day the sale was made. This is extremely important as it provides to authorities the actual date that the event occurred. Make sure you are using a pen with either blue or black ink. You must use the same pen for the entire receipt and to make a duplicate if requested.

Next, write the description of the vehicle. Include the car's serial number, the identification number, the make and model, its color, as well as any other identifying information you may have. If you buy a car that had items in it, make sure to include that those items were with the car and not forgotten about or stolen. Also include how much was paid for the vehicle.

You will need to leave space near the bottom of the page for signatures. Make sure to include printed names and signatures of the buyer and seller. Having the date written next to the signatures is good to have. If possible, have contact information listed for each person in case one or the party is needed for further identification.

There should be at least one witness in case a conflict arises in the future. Keep in mind, the more witnesses you have the better. It's not necessary to have more than five witnesses though.

Go to your computer put the sellers name and address on the top right hand corner, and date it.
Then on the opposite side of the page, the left, underneath, write the buyer's name and address.
Then write in bold, receipt for purchase of car.
Give the details of the car, model, make year and registration number (which will be changed later with ownership change). Then write the amount in full that the car was sold for, and in figures. Plus the date.
Then at the bottom you should write: full and final settlement - no reclaims, or returns. The car is sold in the condition it is in, and the buyer accepts that.
Then write, buyer, seller, and a place for you both to sign.
You can do this on your computer.

A receipt for a car sale includes the purchase price, some basic information about the vehicle and the date and time of sale. Although the receipt itself is not proof of ownership, it can be useful for both the buyer and the seller.

A receipt for any product sold should be written in a clear and concise manner in which all details should be included. They should comprise of the product name, quantity, price, any make and model name, and any other supporting information like the time and date of purchase. This will act as a proof for the customer to retain and produce in the future during any warranty returns or claims.
