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.
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.
