There are a few crucial things you should double-check before sending your invoice as even a small mistake can result in delayed payment. Some templates even include a pre-filled invoice example to help with this.
Here’s a quick checklist that covers all the basics you need on every invoice:
- Contact info: You can insert your client’s details beside your own in the top left. If you have a lot of clients consider creating a specific reference number for each one. The “sample invoice” template should help you here.
- Dates: Include the date you issue the invoice and also the due date by which you expect to be paid.
- Invoice Number: A unique number for identifying the invoice, usually a sequential, serial number. This is vital as it will help you to identify your invoices when you need them later on.
- Payment Terms: In the UK, standard payment terms often state that: the purchaser has 30 days to make a payment and you can charge 8.5% interest on late payments. Make sure you add your payment details – Bank Name, Sort Code and Account Number.
- Additional info: A brief description about what your invoice includes, and perhaps a thank you message for the client!
