What does a construction invoice template need?
A construction invoice template needs to be clear. At the end of the day, you want to get paid and get paid the correct amount. This comes down to two important things – a readable design and the correct invoice information. The invoice design should be laid out in a way that you could glance at the invoice and easily read all information. A good invoice design will also make you look more professional. The other part of a good construction invoice is having the correct information. If you’re missing any key information about the transaction, that could affect what you get paid.
Important details to include on your invoice are:
- Your contact and business information
- Your customer’s contact information
- Invoice number
- Invoice issue date and payment due date
- Construction duties performed
- The amount of time spent performing the construction duties or the amount of construction duties provided
- Costs for each construction duty
- Material costs to be charged to the client
- Any travel costs to be charged to the client
- Total cost of all the construction services
- Any tax payable
- How the payment is structured
- Accepted payment methods (with account numbers)
- Additional information like licenses or project timelines
- Terms and conditions
While the above list will likely work for most construction businesses, there might be additional information that your invoice needs. This information relates to the specific area of construction that you work in.
How do I make a construction invoice?
You can use our construction invoice templates to make your construction invoice. Simply fill in the key sections outlined in the template with the necessary information for this particular invoice, including business details, payment info, costs and invoice items. Next, customise any of these sections and add in information not already outlined in the invoice. This information could be industry specific information or any information that relates specifically to the job you are billing for. Adjust the invoice number so this invoice has its own unique invoice number. The invoice should be complete but take one final look to see if you are missing any information. Specifically look for information that will affect you getting paid.
An alternative to invoice templates is a free invoice maker like Bookipi Invoice. Simply enter in all the information you need where the app asks for it and it will be made for you. Your invoice is automatically assigned a unique invoice number and the app automatically adds standard information that won’t change on your invoice. You also won’t need to worry about calculating totals as it is all done by the app.

The invoice templates make your business look organised and professional, helping your business’ brand. Your business and accounting processes will be better managed, making it easier for you when you need to do your taxes.
Invoice alternatives to construction invoice templates
Construction invoice templates are not perfect. Filling out invoice templates is not a practical use of your time. The time you waste re-entering information every time you invoice is time you could be using for something more worthwhile. The design is also too fiddly. You can end up spending ridiculous amounts of time making it aligned and neat every time you need to enter custom information. Organising your invoices is also really difficult. It takes time, resources and energy that you likely don’t have, just to keep them organised for accounting. Invoice templates might work if you only send a few invoices but if you’re invoicing regularly, you need a more efficient solution.
Bookipi Invoice aims to solve these problems. Bookipi Invoice is a free and practical accounting solution available on mobile and web. You can use it to create and send an invoice in under a minute. The app does all the designing for you so you won’t need to spend a single second on the design. The software saves your customers, business details and items so you can add the invoice items in just a few clicks. On top of that, your invoices are automatically organised and sorted based on invoice number or issue date. Bookipi Invoice also has stacks of great features like credit card payments, signatures and read receipts.
