By On Aug 10, 2018 Invoice Template
Provide the details. The main body of the invoice should detail the service you provided. If you completed the service via an hourly rate, be sure to enumerate the hours worked. If you completed a per page or per word project, provide those details, too. You will want to detail exactly what you did, how, and for how long.
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.
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.
