Sales invoices are necessary in every business as they reflect the business transactions performed between two companies. A Sales invoice is a valid business document which entitles the issuer to demand payment for the goods delivered or the services rendered, as listed on the Sales invoice.
Hence, a Sales invoice must contain all necessary information to verify the business transaction between the two companies to avoid future dispute. Its template header may place the company’s name and logo with its full mailing/contact address and information at the left side with the Invoice number and Date on the right side.
Following this, the addressee’s information is placed further down on the left with the Shipping information for delivery purposes on the right.
Then, a sub-header follows which lists the Salesperson, Shipping method and terms, Payment terms, Due date and Delivery Terms information columns.
The body of the Sales invoice template may record the following columns of information:
* Item number
* Unit Price
* Line Total
Concessions are similar to discounts which can be recorded at the bottom of the Line total, followed by Sub-total, Sales Tax and Grand Total columns. If space permits, further notes or advice can be noted at the bottom section such as a business greeting like “Thank you for your business” or reminder to write the check out in favor of the company’s name correctly.
Consider the attached sample template for your convenience.
