Frequently Asked Questions

Can I send a freelance invoice via email?

Yes, sending a self-employed invoice via email is an acceptable business practice. This is the most efficient way to ensure your client receives your bill. Using the freelancer invoice template by FreshBooks, you can customize, download, and email professional-looking invoices to your clients in minutes.

Can I customize the freelance invoice template?

Yes, the FreshBooks freelance invoice template is completely customizable. You can add your own company logo, add and remove items as needed, and make sure that the line items include all the details, like billable hours, project materials, freelance services rendered, products delivered, sales tax, and notes.

Are there any legal requirements for a freelance invoice?

To ensure your freelance invoices can be considered a binding legal contract, you must include the business name, address, and contact details of yourself and your client, invoice date, an invoice number, a clearly itemized description of what you are charging for, the total amount due, payment terms, and other invoice details.

Is it necessary to include a payment deadline on my freelance invoice?

Although it is not mandatory, it is a good idea. FreshBooks makes it easy to create invoices that include a specific pay-by date to ensure that you are paid in a timely manner. You can also specify what actions will be taken if the payment deadline is not met, as you can begin to charge late fees to those client accounts.

Should I include late payment fees on my freelance invoice?

Yes, including a line outlining late payment fees will motivate all your clients to pay your invoice on time and allow you to legally begin charging accruing or flat fees once the due date has passed. FreshBooks templates offer an elegant invoice design that includes space for these calculations.
