Every transaction in the business world requires an invoice to confirm the deal and payment. It is a necessary facilitation in businesses to record the transaction. Invoices refer to the cash flow of the business.
An invoice can be designed according to the need of the business. Although most companies have their own structure and design for their invoice, some information should remain in an invoice.
An invoice template header may have:
* Company’s name and logo
* Company’s full mailing address & contact number
* Customer / Recipient’s full name
* Customer / Recipient’s full address and contact information
* Invoice Number
* Delivery Order Number Reference
* Customer’s Identification Code
The above information states the basic information to confirm the transaction between the two companies.
The body of a blank invoice template would contain the basic information such as:
* Item number
* Unit Price
* Line Total
The above lists the actual transaction details so that payment can be made to the originator of this invoice.
The invoice can list further instructions at the bottom to remind the customer the following information:
* Due Date for Payment
* Mode of Payment (Terms: 30 days, Cash)
* Check payable to (Company name)
* Terms and conditions
An invoice could be made out for some goods sold or services rendered, like repair job. It is a call for payment.
