Make sure there is no doubt that they understand what you are billing for and a due date for when you expect cash in hand. And do not wait too long to send it to your customer—you want your product or service to be fresh in their mind when their bill arrives. Keep your invoices simple and clean, and remember, they are essentially marketing material. They do not have to be professionally designed, but do not clutter them up with jargon that your customer wont understand about your service or product, or use hard to read fonts or colors when you customize your invoice.
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. Due to affordable small business-targeted options such as Freshbooks or Quickbooks, you may never have to generate an invoice yourself anyway. An invoice serves several purposes. It is not just the catalyst that gets you paid, although Id 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. Iam not sure why or how they managed that.
Invoice, There are multiple ways to assign invoice numbers. If you are using an Excel sheet to track payments, you may find that the simplest is chronological – use the next number in the numerical series. But that may not be intuitive invoicing system as your Excel invoice tracker gets longer, plus, chronological numbers can quickly become a mouthful. To customize your freelancer invoice template, upload your freelancer logo and enter your details. At a minimum, your template should include basic information about your freelance business as well as the details of the service you’re providing to your client.
