What information should I include on a rent receipt?

There’s a lot you’ll want to include on your rent receipt template. This info is important for your tenants’ records and your own.

The receipt should include:

  • Your contact information.
  • Name of the tenant who made the payment.
  • The total amount paid.
  • The rental property location.
  • The rental period covered by the payment.
  • The payment method (cash, check, e-transfer).
  • The date payment was received.

All of this information is necessary for your records. You can keep track of which tenants have fully paid rent, make sure they pay on time every month, and check to see if there are any tenants who still need to pay. If needed, add a section to show any late payments or other fees paid by your tenants so you can also keep track of them.

The more you include on the rent receipt, the easier it is for you to track everything. You can keep printed or digital copies of the receipts for as long as needed for your financial or personal records.

How can I make a rent receipt look good?

Having the right information on the rent receipt is only the first step. You need to make sure the receipt looks good as well. All of the information should be organized on the receipt, so it’s easy to fill out. Keep related information in the same spot on the receipt.

For instance, the tenant’s name, the property address, and the rental period should be in the same spot. If any late payment fees or other fees are added to the receipt, make sure they’re clearly noted and added to the amount paid.

How can I send a rent receipt to my tenants?

There are a few ways to get the rent receipt to your tenants. If you print the template and fill it out as needed, you can hand the receipts directly to your tenants or send them through the mail. If you’d like an easier way to provide receipts, try sending them through email. A PDF of the rental receipt can be made and filled out, then sent to each tenant’s email address.

An added bonus of emailing receipts is that you’ll automatically have a record of those receipts in your ‘sent mail’ folder.

If you need more transparency, use our receipt maker to send receipts. We’ll notify you when your tenant receives and opens the receipt. Invoice Simple’s invoice management system not only makes it easy for you to create receipts and manage their delivery but also manage payments and your finances.
