You must have a form in place that must be used for all reimbursements that are made.

Date,who is was given to, what is was for, check number and a small explanation.

Receipt(s) should be stapled to that form and filed.

It is the correct way to account for any moneys that were paid to anyone.

If you have a bill or payment due, then a receipt of the payment and/or check number & date written should be written on the bill in question, stapled to it & filed.
