By On Jul 05, 2018 Invoice Template
If you do multiple projects for this client, name them! Use some phrasing that denotes this project from the one before it or the one after it. It will limit mix-ups and (you guessed it) get you paid on time. Make payment instructions clear. If you want a paper check, should it be made out to you or your business? If you want a Paypal payment, then, by all means, include the relevant information.
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.
Brand it. You want this employer to remember you in the future should they have any other writing positions available. If you have a logo, or even a certain font, quote or layout that is unique to your particular service, consider using it on your invoice. At the very least, you must include your name, address, and other identifying information in the header of your invoice.
