Use a digital format – Using a digital format is one way to ensure your invoice is professional, and to indicate that you're likely to use the latest tools, and follow best practices, on the job. Simple mobile apps like Invoice2go will allow you to create and send professional estimates and invoices on site when the project is still fresh in your client's mind. These apps can even store receipts so you have a real-time way to keep your expenses organized for easy presentation to your clients.
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.
