What Should Be Included in Self-Employed Invoices

Invoicing as a freelancer might seem like a daunting process if you don’t know what to include in your form. We took care of that and prepared templates with fillable fields, in which you should add the following:
  • date of bill issue;
  • due date;
  • data about you or your company;
  • an orderer’s contact details;
  • a list of services or goods rendered, their quantity, prices, taxes, and fees;
  • discounts and shipping costs, if any;
  • payment methods.
When drafting an invoice, an independent contractor should also include instructions and clear recommendations in the “Notes” column. It will make the payment process easier for a customer and increase the likelihood that money will be credited to your account faster.

You can specify the cost per item or select the hourly rate, add as many fields as necessary to list all items, choose the most convenient payment method for you or a client, add a company logo, attach photos and manuals if required.
