Difference between Income & Expenditure account & Receipts & Payments account:-

Income & expenditure account comprises of only revenue items whereas Receipts & Payments Account comprises of both revenue & capital items. For example purchase of fixed assets: this will reflect in Receipts & Payments Account but not Income & expenditure account. The other difference is Receipts & Payments Account is always prepared on cash basis whereas Income & expenditure account can either be cash or accrual basis. Income & Expenditure account reflects the net position of operations as on a particular date but the Receipts and Payments Account reflects the gross flows (inflow and outflow) of funds / cash.

About donation options:-

Almost 52% of the total number of donations are for the Donation options in the range of Rs 500-3000. For Donation option size of more than Rs 10,000, there are a little more than 1% donations of the total number of donations.
