What is an Invoice Statement?

An invoice statement is an accounting report that is used to list your net income or business expenses, which would be either profit or loss. This statement is also commonly referred to as a “profit and loss report” or “P&L” statement.

You can generate an invoice statement whenever you choose, but they are typically used to report your business’s financial activity during a designated accounting period, such as per month, quarter or year.

The invoice statement template serves as a great guideline to make sure you’re including all of the proper information on your income and expense statement.
