By On Jul 30, 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!
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.
