The Receipt and Payment account is just a summary of the all-cash transaction(including transaction done through Bank) related to receipts and payment made by the organisation during a relevant accounting period. This account is being prepared at the end of the financial year along with income and expenditure account and balance sheet.
The cash book and Receipts and Payment Account both provide the same information but in a different manner. In the cash book, all the transaction are recorded in the chronological order but in Receipts and Payment Account the only summary of accounts are shown at the end of the relevant accounting period. Receipts and Payment account does not give the date of Transactions.
In the Receipts and Payment Account, all the cash receipts are recorded on the debit side and all cash payments are recorded on the credit side of the account.
