The difference between an invoice and a bill is the focus and standpoint. The invoice is created by a supplier, and it is a statement of services or products produced and delivered to a customer, including the amount owed. An invoice may be created before or after the product or service is received. It is common for an invoice to be included with products being delivered, so the recipient can check off the items to make sure they are all there.
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.
A bill is a request for payment. A bill is usually considered from the customers standpoint. It is common to receive a bill without an invoice, as in a restaurant or retail store. A bill is usually given with the expectation of immediate payment.
I have heard from some clients that they do not necessarily need the long itemization that I have included in past invoices. At the same time, I have encountered clients who ask me to break down my invoice into very specific parts. When it comes to generating invoices, it is important to keep in mind that you are not making any money doing this. So, keep it simple and quick.
