Invoice and receipt....such a simple words. You pay for something and you receive a receipt to prove you have paid. It's a brilliant system.
If something is wrong with what you have bought, you can prove when and where you bought if you return it. If you are buying for someone else, no need to write the price down or try to remember the price. You receive a receipt. If an item is tax deductible, you have the receipt you have proof for the tax department. If you are a business person, you can put all the receipts together for later book keeping entry.
At times you receive an invoice, or a bill, stating how much you need to pay.
But now, when we are being asked to pay for something, it is called a tax invoice. Likewise, when we pay, we receive a tax receipt. Why this change? It is an invoice or receipt. Why add tax to it?
Just a reminder of my least favourite words, orientated and orientating. It is oriented and orienting. Why add unnecessary extra syllables?
Thought for the day: The only good thing about cheddar cheese from the supermarket is that it does not crumble like feta cheese does when you stab it with a fork.
