Detail

As a freelancer you know it's important to get paid without delay and a professional invoice could be helpful. Being professional means your bill contains all the required information that are formatted properly.

Whenever you have completed a service and are ready to be paid, you must always submit an invoice to your client. Occasionally, clients will not follow up with an invoice request, so it's your job to keep track of the payments due to you. The important part is to keep track of the invoices you submit (using an invoice processing system helps with this a great deal), and follow up on a regular basis with a polite email or phone call asking for a status update on your payment. With Uniform Invoice Software installed, you can find all pending (not paid) invoices with a single click of mouse - i.e. clicking the "Invoices" button on the ribbon tab. You can sort the invoice list by any column - simply double clicking the column heading, or search for an existing invoice by a criterion applied to almost any fields available on the invoicing form.

No matter what freelance service you offer - freelance web design, graphic design, photography, copywriting, computer programming, website development, consulting, video production, translation, etc. - it makes sense to have a number of documents prepared as you tend to use the same ones over and over again. Invoice Template is one of them that you will find useful. If you are not family with invoicing yet, invoices should include: Who the invoice is to (client), Who the invoice is from (you), Date and invoice number, Service(s) carried out, Total costs, Any terms e.g. Payment required on receipt of invoice, A little thank you note.

The template has no tax set by default (the tax cells are hidden and not printable). With Uniform Invoice Software installed, you can easily change it to one tax or two taxes, depending on your particular needs. Simply click the Settings button on the ribbon tab, and then go to the Taxes tab, choose your tax type (no tax, one tax, two taxes), enter the tax name such as VAT, and the rate, click Apply and you are done! With this flexibility, we can say this template is not only suitable for freelancer, limited company and also sole trader, whether they are VAT-registered or not.
