By On Jul 18, 2018 Invoice Template
An invoice serves several purposes. Its not just the catalyst that gets you paid, although I had venture to say thats the #1 role, huh? But that invoice is often needed by the buyer for other reasons. They need that record. They need to prove that they paid you, often so they can write off your payment. In my years of writing, I have only had one client, a magazine, that did not need an invoice. I am not sure why or how they managed that.
Draw it out. Include a per charge column that cites your rate (i.e., cents per word or dollars per hour), and then draw it out to a total charges column. This not only helps eliminate math mistakes or typos, but it also provides the client an easy way to estimate the cost of hiring you for future work, too!
Since that original article, I have clarified some of the more important parts of a writing invoice. It is, of course, through trial and error. Your name and mailing address should be right at the very top so that check can reach you very quickly, and so that you are not fielding an email a week from now asking for it.
