Chinese herbalist: Cash purchases

Cash purchases means any payment you make to specialist herb suppliers with whom you do not have an account. As you don't have an account, you will have to pay for the goods at the time when you buy them.

Examples of the types of supplier from whom you might make cash purchases include:

  • online suppliers which offer online ordering facilities. You pay for the goods at the time you order them, usually by credit or debit card
  • suppliers from whom you make one-off or infrequent purchases

Cash purchases only include items that you buy for use in providing herbal or other complementary treatments. They don't include things like tea and coffee bought for use at work, or items such as business stationery. Don't include things like this here. They're covered elsewhere in the cash flow.

Remember to keep safely all the invoices and receipts for cash purchases, even if the amounts are small.
