Key elements of an invoice.
Let’s look at the 10 key elements which are included in all professional invoices.
1. Header & logo
Adding a header which clearly identifies the document as an invoice can make it simpler to review your records, complete your accounts and submit tax filings. It also makes it easy for the customer to see the document is an invoice - which needs paying - as opposed to a quote or receipt which can look similar.
Use our free invoice creator to add a logo to make the invoice reflect your company brand and give it an even more professional look.
2. Invoice Number
Using a unique invoice number can help keep track of multiple invoices, and make reconciling your company accounts easier. You may also add a purchase order number to the invoice as another method of tracking your business activity.
3. Name and details of client
For your own records, when you create an invoice it’s important to add the name and contact details of your client. These contact details should include an address, phone number, and email address.
4. Company name and details
A professional invoice will include your business’s legal name and contact details like your address, phone number, and email.
This avoids confusion, and makes sure your customer will always know how to get in touch if they have any queries - or when they want to buy from you again.
5. Date of sending invoice
Add the date the invoice is sent - alongside the date that the payment is due. Your client will easily be able to see they’re dealing with the most recent payment request, and also double check when the money is due.
6. Description of goods sold or services rendered
Using a clear line by line description of the goods you’ve sold - or the services you’ve provided - is crucial to avoid confusion. Remember to add how many of each item was sold if relevant.
7. Cost per unit or product
Next, use the online invoice generator to enter the costs of each item sold, or the hourly rate agreed and the number of hours worked.
You should now have a clear description of exactly what you’re billing for - making it easier for your client to double check the details of the invoice can mean fewer queries and a faster payment.
8. Tax rates and fees
Enter the details of any tax, shipping and handling, or extra fees that apply to the goods or services provided.
You’ll also find the invoice creator offers a separate discount box if you’ve agreed any discounts with your customer in advance. Just add the details here to confirm the arrangement.
9. Total amount with currency
The invoice generator will calculate the total balance due from the line items entered. You’ll be able to review, check, and make amendments as needed, and change the currency as you wish.
10. Terms, conditions and payment instructions
Invoice terms can vary widely depending on your industry, company policy or history with the client. However, clarifying what’s been agreed, as well as the consequences of either party breaking this agreement is important to protect both the buyer and the seller. Penalties may include late fees or additional charges if an invoice is not settled on time, for example.

FAQ about creating an invoice.
What is an invoice?
An invoice is an itemized bill, issued by anyone selling goods or services. An invoice will detail the agreed prices or fees, and list out the products or services that have been provided. Upon receipt, the buyer will settle the invoice. Invoices have a practical purpose - making sure you get paid for goods or services you’ve provided a customer. They can also help to create a professional impression, and build client relationships, as well as acting as a legal record of sales made.
Can I edit my invoices?
Yes. Simply edit the information in our free invoice generator tool and add your own company logo to give a professional finish. Create your PDF invoice when you’re ready - and continue to edit your invoice with a PDF editor tool if you need to. You can also get a fully customizable solution by using our invoice templates which come in Google Docs, Google sheets, Word, Excel, PDF and Open Office formats.
Can I change the currency on the invoice?
Choose the currency you’re billing in by simply selecting it in the invoice maker. Then get paid into your Wise Business account to cut currency conversion fees and keep more of your hard earned cash.
