An invoice, sometimes called a sales invoice, is a document sent by a provider of a product or service to the purchaser. The invoice establishes an obligation on the part of the purchaser to pay, creating an account receivable. In other words, the invoice is a written verification of the agreement between the buyer and seller of the goods or services. Invoices are an important part of your business s bookkeeping and accounting recordkeeping system because they record sales transactions.
An invoice is a pillar of the sales process. It is the main document that serves as a bill for the service or products your business has provided. A properly created invoice is a legal document that provides a binding agreement.
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.
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.
