What Is a Professional Invoice Used For?
It is vital that your invoices are as professional as you are. After all, the look of a bill sets the tone of the service professional behind it. When an invoice is comprehensive yet seamless and simple, addressing every detail, it minimizes chances of clients coming back and questioning payments.
As a consultant or other type of service professional, a detailed professional invoice will outline what services were provided. This makes the client breathe easier knowing what they are paying you for––and more likely to submit payment faster.
Not only that. You get to receive payment in your ideal fashion. Use a professional services invoice to declare your payment preference, such as a check, Paypal, credit card or ACH bank transfer.
Outlining these details and more will make it easy to keep track of client work, organize client information and know what payments are taken care of––and which are overdue.
With our professional invoice format, the important details are laid out for you. This pre-made template lets you:
- Keep track of overdue payments
- Get paid faster
- Organize client and project information
- Bill your clients quickly and for free
- Have PDF and printer-friendly formatting
- Breathe easy knowing that information is ready for tax time
These benefits apply whether using the professional template word, professional invoice template excel or professional invoice template PDF.
How to Create a Professional Invoice
High-quality work merits high-quality invoices.
Let’s get you on track to delivering the best in class invoice format.
- Download the free “Professional Invoice Template” from FreshBooks
- Add any business branding, such as your logo, company colors and ideal font
- Make sure your name, your business name (if applicable) and contact details are on the top
- Outline the services you provided, as well as a description and the rate for each
- Replace the blanks with your client’s name, business and contact details
- Add up the total of the services provided and include in this in the “Total” section
- State the preferred and accepted payment methods
With the blank customizable fields, it is easy to tailor the invoice to the needs of you and your client. One of the fields lets you add a description and price for the service provided. This is key. Having the description and service written out reaffirms the work done and why the client is being charged, which will have them more likely to pay, rather than follow up with questions.
The professional invoice template is the go-to invoice for a variety of services and projects. Easy to customize and with coverage of every detail, you know your invoice will have the necessary information to get you paid––the right way.
