Frequently Asked Questions

What information should be included on a contractor invoice? 

A contractor invoice should include the details of your business and your client, including name, business address, and phone number. You’ll also include job-specific information like labor charges, materials, total and miscellaneous costs. FreshBooks invoice templates let you customize your invoice so you can add personal elements like a logo.

Are there any legal requirements for contractor invoices in the US? 

Contractor invoices in the US are legally required to include a description of the total cost of the services you’ve provided, as well as the number of hours and the total amount your client needs to pay. You’ll also have to include any specific payment terms and the payment due date on your invoice.

What payment terms can contractors include in their invoices? 

Contractors can include payment method, currency, and payment date on a contractor’s invoice. The payment date is usually represented by the term Net (number). For example, Net 10 means 10 days from the invoice date. FreshBooks invoicing software offers automatic payment reminders to encourage clients to pay their invoices.

Are there any tax implications for contractor invoices in the US? 

Depending on how you set your contractor business up, you may need to include things like sales tax. You’ll also want to keep your professional invoices organized to report your expenses and revenues for tax season. FreshBooks invoice software stores your invoices so you have all your tax information in one place.

How can I ensure that my contractor invoices comply with US laws? 

You can ensure your contractor invoice complies with US laws by including thorough details on products and services provided, total amounts, and payment terms. This means a clear breakdown of materials and hours, costs, any tax information, and the final cost of contractor work, as well as a payment method and date.

How often should I send contractor invoices to clients? 

For shorter jobs, you may send out an estimate and a final contractor invoice. If you’re working on bigger or ongoing jobs, monthly invoices are the most common method to request payment. FreshBooks invoicing software lets you schedule invoices in advance so you can always invoice on a consistent timeline.
