Osteopath: Cash purchases

'Cash purchases' means any payment you make to 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:

  • suppliers that don't offer credit terms
  • suppliers from whom you make one-off or infrequent purchases

Cash purchases only include items that you buy for use in the course of treatments. They don't include things like tea and coffee bought for consumption at work by you and your staff, or items such as business stationery.

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