We will use the featured sample invoice template to illustrate what to include in an invoice. We'll also cover what the best practices are so you know how to make your invoice look professional, save time, and get paid faster.
Using invoicing systems to make it simple - While you can make up your own invoice or use a free template, it's often easier to use an invoicing system that offers more in depth features. Some invoice systems, like Harvest, offer the option to create estimates for big projects, keep track of multiple clients and send reminder emails when payments are late. Another option is Freshbooks, which offers similar features but includes profit and loss sheets, as well as trackers to help you manage your time.
