The businesses have been instructed by TRA to use the approved machines to issue all their receipts. It is fine and there are a number of benefits that goes with that. What i am not sure is whether this change looked at the interests of the other users of the receipts and accommodated their requirements. We all know the receipts that were in use before, they carried a number of features that served a purpose and in fact made them qualify as a legal document. Some of these critical features are missing in most of the TRA receipts i have seen. From business point of view a receipt acknowledges receipt of the said sum of money from the one paying for the said service or product. This means in simple terms the receipt is saying that received a sum of Tshs was received by Y from X for the products or services provided by Y to X on date depending on the nature of the service other details like VAT can be stated. In the receipts in use now including one I just received this morning from a hotel where I slept do not mention anything about the one paying. This means it is not to me a proof that I paid the sum for that service. JF experts in business and law assist me is this a legal document as it reads on the top?
