Notes: Many people overlook it, but the notes section on the invoice can be invaluable. A simple phrase like 'Thank you for your business' will leave a good impression to the customer and increase the chance of an invoice getting paid faster. You can also include Payment Instructions, Warranty Information or even a personalized message in this section to make them feel really special.
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.
