What does a legal invoice template need?
A legal invoice template needs to be clear. Your client must be able to tell from your invoice all the services you have provided and what they owe you for them. This means that you need to add any information that is relevant to the services you have provided them and their costs. You also need to outline how they are supposed to pay you for your services. On top of that, your legal invoice template needs to have a good design. This means your invoice should be well-structured and readable. It also should look professional as if you’re providing them with legal advice or services of any sorts, they must trust you.
The information your legal invoice should have is:
- Your contact and business information
- Your customer’s contact information
- Invoice number
- Invoice issue date and payment due date
- Legal services provided
- Any expenses incurred that will be passed onto the client (attach a receipt for proof)
- Quantity of legal services provided
- Costs of the legal services
- Total cost of all the legal 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
If you have any additional information that you would like the customer to know, you should also add this to the invoice.
How do I make a legal invoice?
A simple and easy way to make invoices is using our invoice template. We’ve already added the key sections that you need so all that you need to do is fill them out. Some of this you can save into your template, like your business details. Other information will need to be customised based on what the invoice is for, like services provided. If you have any extra information that you need to add to the invoice, you also should add this. After you’ve done all that, give the invoice its own unique invoice number so you’re able to better identify or organise it should the need arise. Your invoice should now have everything that it needs but make sure to do one more read of it before you send it to anyone. Look out for any missing details that might impact you getting paid the correct amount.
Alternatively, you could use an invoice generator like Bookipi to make your invoices. With Bookipi Invoice, you can add your customer’s details and items in a few clicks. All your totals are calculated for you so you won’t need to spend anytime adding up costs. The app automatically assigns an invoice number and organises your invoices as well.
Benefits of using legal invoice templates
A legal invoice template can bring numerous benefits to your legal business. One such benefit is design. The invoice template has already been designed by our team to be clear and easy to read. The design also will ensure your business looks professional and organised, building trust within your client. You’ll save time and energy not having to design your invoice template yourself or every time you need to send an invoice.
Invoice alternatives to legal invoice templates
Legal invoice templates are not perfect, especially if you have a lot of clients to bill or you bill regularly. You want an invoicing solution that will save you time, not create more trouble for you. An invoice template won’t help you with that. Templates require lots of tedious manual entry every time that you send an invoice. The designs are also a hassle. If your values are too large for the spaces provided or you add a custom section, it can blow your entire invoice out of proportion. They also require a lot of manual work to organise and sort them.
An invoice generator like Bookipi Invoice is a more suitable invoicing solution for legal practitioners. Bookipi Invoice is available on mobile and web and you can use it to create and send invoices in under a minute. The design is automatically done for you by the app so you won’t need to worry about making your invoice look good. Simply add customer details and invoice items to your invoice in just a few clicks. Your invoices are also automatically organised based on your invoice number which is automatically assigned or your issue date. We also have a number of other great time-saving features, including credit card payments, signatures and read receipts.
