Today, online invoice software makes it easy to create and send invoices. Cloud-based online software is available at any time, anywhere you have an internet connection and smartphone, tablet, or computer.
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.
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.
An invoice, on the other hand, records the receipt of the product or service and, as noted above, the terms of payment. Purchase orders are used by many companies as part of an approval process. Some companies require purchase orders for products or services over a specific amount.
