How to make an invoice

An invoice is a key part of the payment process.  This means you need to make it look professional. An invoice is a representation of your business so what you give your client should show that. Adding your logo can make your invoice better reflect your business.

Your invoice must also be clear and easy to read. You can edit our example invoice templates.  Make sure that you have a readable font, colours with enough contrast and a structure that is easy to follow. 

Your customers read invoices to understand how much they need and how to pay you. If they can’t read the invoice or they misinterpret it, you may not get paid on time.

There are several ways organize your list of products and/or services. For large jobs, you may want to group products and/or services based on date of delivery. You can also group similar products and/or services under invoice categories.
