A receipt is just a written proof that money was taken. It is hard to imagine a place on Earth where the legality of giving such a proof would be questionable at all so that you would need to talk about an "authority to issue receipts". Only if you find a place where money itself is illegal. Now, the real question here is whether such receipts (issued by ...

I am an Ontario-licensed lawyer. The following is a general information about the law and not specific legal advice. You are not my client and I have not given you advice related to your circumstances. First, even when you ask a generic question, define the jurisdiction of interest. For the purpose of your question, Canada is a collection of different ...

I make a copy of any important receipt printed on thermal paper, since the terms of many sellers and manufacturers require receipts for disputes. But I'm not aware of any law that says they have to make it convenient to maintain a receipt or other proof of purchase. However, when a company makes their terms unclear, unexpected, or difficult to comply with ...

If the accident was your fault, the person harmed by the accident has a right to sue you for the amount of damages incurred, and will prevail if they can prove your fault and their damages in court. You don't have to settle the case at all. You could simply wait for them to sue you, although doing so would result in a claim against your car insurance policy ...

Would a marketplace for trading receipts be legally allowed to operate? Yes, or at least I think so, since it is highly doubtful that any legislation outlaws receipts trading. Unlike other documents, there is no commonplace notion that receipts are secret, non-transferable, or even private. For it to be actionable, the marketplace would have to engage in,...

The EU VAT directive has harmonized rules for invoices. Relevant for your question: Article 226 requires, among others, that the invoice contains the customer's VAT identification number, as referred to in Article 214, under which the customer received a supply of goods or services in respect of which he is liable for payment of VAT, or received a supply ...

This question sounds to me like there is an inferred intent of the person giving the invoice to manipulate their value added tax rate due to the misclassification, and then an unrelated issue related to an overly high charge for the services which are basically independent. Is the classification of the job material in some way to either of those issues in ...

The advice provided here by @patrick87 is completely WRONG and full of assumptions, so is not useful. Especially in the context of rental payments, a landlord is legally obliged to give you receipts upon request. It is illegal for them to refuse. And you can ask for receipts retroactively. If the landlord refuses, to resolve this would probably require you ...

In the United States, at least, there is no general right to a receipt at all, much less one that remains legible for a set period of time. There are specific requirements for specific types of transactions (in the U.S., all credit card transactions are regulated by federal law, I believe), but in general, a receipt is a courtesy, not a legal requirement. ...

A market established for the purpose of facilitating a crime (tax evasion) would be illegal in most if not all jurisdictions. It is fundamentally no different from Silk Road.

First, it would have to be legally established that you were at fault. Second, your liability is proportional to your percentage of responsibility (if you are 60% at fault, you are liable for 60% of the damages). Assume that this has been sorted out (let's say his car was parked and you unquestionably drove into it). Your insurance company will have some ...

The person collecting damages does not have to provide a receipt. However he must establish that he suffered a loss. This is usually done via supplying a quote stating the cost of repair / replacement is $X. Note that the person need not to apply the repair, and whether he does is irrelevant from your point of view. He must, obviously, also establish that ...

Your receipt is evidence that you paid a certain amount, not that the amount you paid is sufficient for your purpose. If the claim is legitimate, the clerk probably made a mistake. You can (should) verify the charges with Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS.motor.vehicles@state.mn.us), to find out what the total filing, title etc. fees are plus the motor ...

Law in Spain tells: Your customers in Spain have to receive your VAT number in the invoices.
