Sales Tax: Depending on your jurisdiction and type of business, the tax requirement can get complicated. Be sure to follow instructions from your local tax bureau and include the appropriate tax amount on the invoice. Pro tip: Use an invoicing software to manage your business activities, change tax settings as you want and make your tax time easier. Discount: If you are offering a discount to your valued customer, include the number here. They will appreciate it and remember good things about doing business with you.
A breakdown of services: If you're manually creating the invoice using Microsoft Word or Google Drive Templates for invoices, you'll need to include a breakdown of the services rendered and any additional charges associated with your work. Make sure to include a column for each of the following: description of work or services, date worked, quantity, rate, hours worked and subtotal. This makes it easy to tally up the total when you list out multiple projects or tasks you've completed for the client.
