How to Fill In Your Invoice Template
Obvious as it may seem, there are a few crucial things it’s worth double-checking before sending your invoice. Even a small mistake can result in delayed payment. Here’s a quick checklist that covers all the basics you need on every invoice:
- Contact info: Both your own details and your client’s ones, all in the top left. If you have a lot of clients consider creating a specific reference number for each one.
- Dates: Include the date you issue the invoice and also when it’s due.
- 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 are 30 days, and you can charge 8.5% interest on late payments. Make sure you add your payment details too – Bank Name, Sort Code and Account Number. If you’ve ever come across any acronyms or shorthand phrases for payment terms, check this rather excellent jargon buster.
- Additional info: A brief description about what your invoice includes, and perhaps a thank you message for the client!
