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, 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.
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.
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.
