Abstract (en)

The invention is a new receipt or payment document provided with some spaces for the amount written in figures (A) which are divided into squares with below the equivalent squares for writing each single number composing the amount in letters. The squares are not contiguous but are separated by a coloured or halftone space (A1,A2). Therefore, a double writing of the amount is obtained: the first in figures wherein each figure is positioned within a square and the second in letters with a series of words (R,C) expressing the number written in figures indicated above. In this way every signatory will indicate, in addition to the amount in figures, which is of easy understanding, the single equivalent number in letters, which will result comprehensible too. The different colouration of the squares allows to identify promptly the worth showed in the document. <IMAGE>
