A small business invoice to get you paid faster

One of the biggest problems faced by small businesses is unpaid invoices. However, as a small business owner, you probably can’t afford for your work to go unpaid or to be paid late.

Quite often, the invoice templates available online aren’t made for small businesses. As a result, they don’t always help you reach your end goal of getting paid.

Small businesses are different from larger companies. There are unique details that small businesses need on their invoice templates which you won’t find on other invoice templates. We’ve catered our invoices, especially towards your needs, allowing you to get paid faster.

What do small business owners need on an invoice template?

As a small business owner, you’ll need a few key things on your invoice. These include:

  • Customer details so we know who needs to make the payment
  • Seller details so we know who is providing the services and/or goods
  • The services and/or goods being provided
  • How much of the services and/or goods have been provided
  • How much each of these services and/or goods cost
  • What all the goods and/or services cost in total
  • How much tax is due if any at all
  • How is the payment structured (all in the one payment or made in stages)
  • The issue date of the invoice
  • The payment due date so they know when to pay you buy
  • The invoice number so you can organise your invoices
  • How the payment can be made (cash, credit card, bank transfer, etc.)
  • Any details needed to make the payment (bank account details, etc.)

There are other details that you might need depending on your business. This could be purchase order number and delivery details among others.

Invoices made for small business owners

As a small business owner, you just need a simple invoice template that helps you get paid and manage your income and finances. It must contain all the information that affects how much you get paid, when you’re getting, how you’re getting paid and what you’re getting paid for. You don’t want an invoice that is too simple and forgets key information but your also don’t want one that is too complicated and has fields that you just don’t need.

Bookipi’s invoice app is an even better small business invoice solution than an invoice template. Simply, add everything that you need and the app will organise and design it for. Spaces you don’t need will be removed and spaces you do need will be added.

Benefits of using a small business invoice template

Small business invoicing is important. It helps you get paid for your hardwork and keeps your business running and successful. Chances are that you’ll want to continue to grow your small business and good invoicing processes will help you streamline your business processes and workflow. You’ll save time and energy that you can dedicate to more important things! You can also reduce the need for an accountant because your business income will all be clearly there for you.

Clean invoicing is also good for client relationships. Your well-designed and professional-looking invoices show your client that you are organised and professional. When your invoices are structured well and clearly written, your clients will be able to clearly see what they owe, what they owe you for and how to pay you. They’ll be more likely to pay you on time and continue to work with you in the future.
