Whether you hand over money to your child or they go out and earn dollars, it is essential that they receive a full set of evidence that they have paid their necessary fees. The provision of personalized school receipt books will achieve this outcome.
Do Schools Use Receipt Books?
While some schools produce personalized school receipt books, many do not. This is a failing within their institution. Just because a child pays money, it is no excuse not to clarify the payment and the process.
One of the salient points about issuing school receipt books and receipts to match payments made by students is to aid the school’s accounting trustworthiness, so that no one in the chain of events should make an error, or be held accountable for untraceable mistakes.
The school’s books will show the name of the school, the date, the term, the amount paid and perhaps mention, any balance outstanding. The student’s school ID and their name, together with the purpose of the payment, must always be completed within the receipt book.
What About Older Students?
Receipts for payments made are just as important for high schools, colleges and university. The payments made both for semester fees and incidental items, will probably increase substantially at these age ranges, compared to the expenses for younger children.
The receipts form the necessary documentation so that students and parents and guardians can compile an accurate assessment of their expenditure for each year at the school.
In modern times, it can be difficult for students and parents to be able to budget and plan for the necessary expenses that are paid out at different times of the year. Where some items are paid for as a weekly or monthly exercise, the receipt book proves each payment that has been received and confirms the outstanding balance at any stage. This detailed information can prove useful for future students who attend the establishment as they will be able to understand the size of funds required to see them through each semester.
