Good invoicing software provides invoice templates that adhere to the legal requirements as well as VAT for an invoice in the country in which your business is based, meaning that there are no concerns about whether you have included all the details your invoice needs.
In the original article that I wrote about invoices, I stated that I just stick with a Word document. If I have time, I will change it to PDF, but that does not always happen. Another common practice that I have seen is using an Excel spreadsheet to generate the invoice. But one important consideration that I did not mention back then is the plethora of accounting software out there. Due to affordable small business-targeted options such as Freshbooks or Quickbooks, you may never have to generate an invoice yourself anyway. I have heard wonderful things about these applications, but have yet to check them out.
But that invoice is often needed by the buyer for other reasons. They need that record. They need to prove that they paid you, often so they can write off your payment. In my years of writing, I have only had one client, a magazine, that did not need an invoice. I am not sure why or how they managed that.
Every business needs to invoice customers, and particularly with startup businesses, the invoice does not have to be complicated or pretty. This is a free basic invoice template for small businesses that only need simple invoices to bill their customers and/or clients.
