Consulting is an important process in the business world. Ideas and advices may be freely available but need not be free of charge always. Consultants who are experts in certain areas make a living giving appropriate advice and training where they are paid for their services rendered.
Hence it is not unusual to forward a consulting invoice to a company for benefiting from the ideas, advice and training of a consultant. A consulting invoice tracks the services rendered and the related payment for those services.
A consulting invoice template would contain the following information:
* Company Name & Logo
* Company Address & Contact
* Client’s Name & Address
* Client’s Contact Information
* Commencement Date
* Billing Date
The body of the consulting invoice template registers the details of the services rendered in various columns to confirm the transaction:
* Item number
* Number of Consulting Hours
* Rate Per hour
The consulting invoice can fill in more than one consulting service in the above columns; it can be one consulting invoice per job or task where there is a weekly consultation until the end of the project. A consulting invoice can be raised on a monthly basis.
A Consulting invoice could also record:
* Inquiry Code
* Quotation Code
* Contract Code
* Account Number of Client
* Customer Identification
The above information are relevant and important to the recipient concerning the request for the consultation as per quotation and contract.
