Invoicing Tips For Small Businesses



Whenever your business sells a product or provides a service, you need to provide an invoice. Invoices not only inform the customer how much they need to pay, but also give you and your customers a record of the tax related to that sale.

There is certain information that you should always include whenever invoicing somebody. The name of your company should be somewhere on the invoice, along with the date and a unique reference number for the customer to refer to in case they need to query it. The purchasers name and a description of the purchase must be included, along with the total cost. Don’t forget to state the payment terms for the invoice to avoid ambiguity over when it should be paid.

If you have received invoices from small businesses or tradesmen in the past, you will have noticed that the quality of the appearance of these can vary greatly. Some companies put a great effort into making their invoice stand out from the pile and treat it almost as an additional form of marketing. On the other end of the scale, it is still not uncommon to get a scrawled piece of handwritten paper demanding payment – this is slightly less impressive!
