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.
Invoices may be mailed or emailed or faxed to a customer. When a customer pays, the invoice number should be noted on the sales receipt and matched to the sales receipt in your accounting software, so it is clear that the invoice has been paid. The payment takes the outstanding amount out of your accounts receivable account.
An invoice provides a detailed account of the products or service and a set of other information that can vary a bit depending on the requirements in the country the invoice is issued and the type of product or service being sold.
Invoices are important not only for keeping track of sales and payments, from balances to stock levels, but they can also be used in the case that a payment is overdue or missing and is followed up with more formal actions.
