By On Aug 10, 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.
When it comes to generating invoices, its important to keep in mind that you are not making any money doing this. So, keep it simple and quick. I like this idea from Thursday Bram at Women on Writing. She says she makes invoices in sets, on one day of the week. You can also make a template, save it and reuse it.
In the original article that I wrote about invoices, I stated that I just stick with a Word document. If I have time, I will change it to PDF, but that does not always happen. Another common practice that I have seen is using an Excel spreadsheet to generate the invoice. But one important consideration that I did not mention back then is the plethora of accounting software out there.
