All there is to know about creating an invoice from scratch

To prevent payment delays, it’s crucial to fill out the invoice request form in as much detail as possible. But don’t worry, we’re here to help to make sure you can hit send without a doubt.  

1. Fill in the blanks

Start by adding in all the information about your company and contact information, including the date, your company address, and invoice number. Then, do the same for your client’s details including: name, company address, city, country and VAT ID.

2. What are they paying for?

Be sure to include clear descriptions of the work you’re invoicing for, the issue date, VAT, registration number, and the agreed fee — whether that’s an hourly or a project rate. And don’t forget to add in the unique invoice number for tracking payment. Have you got a late fee policy? Include the percentage that will be charged for any late or failed payment.

3. Let Sheets do the maths for you

You can itemise your billable services and our template will calculate the totals for you, including costs and quantities. Both you and your client are able to see a clear breakdown of each cost, so there are no last minute surprises.

4. Finally, it’s payday!

Clearly mark your bank details (account number and sort code) of where you wish to receive the final funds. Finally, add a reference for the payment to ensure it can be matched to the invoice seamlessly.

Best practices for writing your billing descriptions

Whether you’re a freelancer, an agency or a corporate company with offices globally, chances are, you’ve got invoices to send. Making sure you’re sending your bills with all the correct information is crucial to getting paid on time (and the right amount). 

  • Make sure you write every detail attached to the work you’ve done, and avoid adding in vague descriptions. 
  • Detail the pricing breakdown of the completed work and itemise your services/product. Then, fill out your hourly (or project) rate and date when each section was completed. 
  • Insert your agree terms including your late fee or missed fee policy towards the end of the invoice to make sure you’re covered in case of any payment issues.
