Why is it necessary to get a receipt when I buy a good or service? PDF Print
It benefits you to ask for and keep any receipts, cancelled cheques, warranties, estimates, contracts and instructions that you get during purchases, in case you run into any problems with products and need to seek redress. Having the receipt or other written documentation confirms that you purchased the item from that specific supplier and that they are the one liable.
