By On Aug 08, 2018 Invoice Template
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.
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.
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.
