What Is a Sales Invoice Used For?

Businesses use sales invoices to record their transactions and request payment from customers. A sales invoice usually outlines the products sold with a brief description of each one, the price of each item and the total amount charged on the bill, along with applicable taxes.  

Sales invoices help small business owners track their sales, manage their store inventory and analyze the popularity of all their products.

Invoices are the foundational accounting document. They help businesses project their future sales and make important business decisions based on revenue.

Customers use sales invoices to keep track of their purchases. Invoices are useful for customers looking to return or exchange an item, as proof of the original sale.

  6. Create an itemized list of the products sold with a brief description of each one
  7. List the retail price of each item sold
  8. Include the total amount due for the invoice and add applicable taxes
  9. Describe your payment terms, including any late fees charged for overdue payment
  10. Send the completed invoice by email or mail, or if you own a brick-and-mortar store, present it to the customer at checkout

Invoice Types for Retail Sales

The type of invoice you create for your small business will depend on your business model and the products you sell. These are some common invoice types used for retail sales:

  • Standard Invoice: Most small retail businesses will find that a standard invoice is all they need to bill customers, with an itemized list of products sold, the price of each item and a total amount due, including taxes.
  • Credit Invoice: If your company needs to issue a refund to a customer, you can record the transaction with a credit invoice. Credit invoices list the amount of money you’re returning to a customer as a refund or discount.
  • Commercial Invoice: If your business ships goods internationally, you’ll need to create commercial invoices so officials can calculate customs and duty charges for cross-border sales.
  • Recurring Invoice: If your business offers a scheduled subscription service for a set amount of money, you can simplify things by automatically generating recurring invoices. An example of this would be a winery that offered a wine of the month subscription to customers.
