Frequently Asked Questions

What is a contract labor invoice template, and why do I need it?

A contract labor invoice template is simply a time-saving tool that helps independent contractors bill clients more efficiently than by creating each invoice yourself. The templates by FreshBooks offer customization to make sure you can invoice accurately for all kinds of contract labor jobs.

Are there any specific legal requirements for contract labor invoices in the US?

There are no federal legal requirements for invoices in the United States, but each state (and some specific jurisdictions) will have its own legal requirements for invoices. Always do your due diligence when invoicing in a new state or city.

What information should be included in a contract labor invoice?

The most important things to include on your contract labor invoices are invoice number, invoice date, name and contact information for you and your client, the payment due date, payment terms, available payment methods, a detailed breakdown of goods/services rendered, and their costs, and any applicable taxes.

Can I customize a contract labor invoice template to include my company logo?

Yes! The contract labor invoice template by FreshBooks is entirely customizable, making it easy to create invoices that include your logo and other branding elements to each invoice. This makes for a more professional-looking invoice aligned with your existing brand.

Are there any tax considerations when invoicing for contract labor services?

You’ll need to be registered to collect tax as a business to charge it on your client invoices. When entering your information into your contract labor invoice template, indicate which tax you’re charging and the percentage amount next to the dollar amount.

What are the accepted payment methods for contract labor invoices?

Your accepted payment methods on your contractor invoice are ultimately up to you. Many opt to use digital payments (whether standalone or via invoicing software such as FreshBooks), wire transfers, credit card payments, or even traditional paper checks.
