Fading Receipts – a Concern for Council

April 14, 2014

For goods/service above $10, it is mandatory for retailers or service providers to issue receipts to consumers. If they don’t, ask for one. You also have the right to request a receipt for anything under $10.

Even businesses require receipts to last long to prepare their accounts and for auditing purposes.    If these documents fade away then there is no form of evidence, for instance to claim VAT etc.
