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.
Be transparent – Your client wants to know where their money is going, so don't hide or be too general with line items on your invoices, and be prepared to show receipts. Otherwise, they'll wonder if you're padding the bill. Be specific. For example, instead of listing "materials" as a single expense, list each one on its own line, such as: paint, nails, plywood, etc.
