Eu penso que receipt é o mais correto mesmo, porquanto uma nota fiscal significa fundamentalmente um comprovante de um compra feita. Isso, em inglês (pelo menos até onde eu sei) se chama receipt mesmo.

Muito obrigado a todos,
feliz ano novo,

fiscal note, fiscal remark, fiscal letter, etc.


Explanation:
Usually, they mean a remark or something written in invoice or factura-proforma, etc. which allows to fiscal organizations to trace the payment.

Another version is about a letter written by a fiscal organization to a person or entity (this sounds also as "uma nota fiscal").

The whole invoice cannot be a fiscal note, obviously.

Nota fiscal is INVOICE in English. It can also be WAYBILL depending on tht situation.


Explanation:
There is no word in English enquivalent to Nota Fiscal in Portuguese. Recently I did a translation for an American company in Brazil where people speaks both languages, and we decided to use Invoice for Nota Fiscal, even for Nota Fiscal-Fatura (another Brazilian word).
Waybill means a paper prepared by a common carrier at the start of the shipment that detais the route the goods will follow to their final destination and states the transportation cost.
Invoice means a bill prepared by the seller of goods or services adn submitted to the purchaser. The invoice lists all items bought, together with amounts owed.

bill


Explanation:
o termo genérico para nota fiscal, no Brasil é, simplesmente, bill. Fatura é a tradução para "ïnvoice", não se aplicando, portanto, para nota fiscal.
boa sorte
