An invoice shows the payment that a buyer owes to a seller. From a seller’s point of view, an invoice for the sale of goods and/or services is referred to as a sales invoice. From a buyer’s point of view, an invoice for the cost of goods and/or services rendered is referred to as a purchase invoice.
Invoices are sometimes confused with purchase orders. Purchase orders (POs) are before the transaction, and invoices are after the transaction. Purchase orders record an order by a customer to a vendor or supplier.
An invoice serves several purposes. It is not just the catalyst that gets you paid, although I would venture to say that is the no 1 role, huh?
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.
