You want to present yourself as a professional
Go to the Office supply store and look for a receipt book that matches your needs
I would have them sign the receipt

Personally, I like to see the break down of everything. The parts list, how much each part cost, the labor, taxes and the total at the bottom. I just like to see what I'm being charged for :thumbsup: ..

I bring this up because I have an accounting degree and experience...the more important aspect that needs to be addressed...is accurate record-keeping for all services delivered (amount, date, services performed, etc.) in order to comply with federal/state reporting of business income.

Another item worth considering is the business form that your endeavor takes...it makes a big difference in terms of tax liability and expense write-offs.

The business world is not nearly as simple as some think, it requires some thought before action.

The more info you provide to the customer the better.

I have a database that keeps track of service records for each customer.
Then I copy & past that info into QuickBooks which becomes their receipt.

I agree with Louis that good accounting proceedures are essential.
Many a business has failed because of poor or no accounting practices.
A couple of accounting courses might serve you well.
In the beginning there was the command line.
