Are you a freelancer? You probably have got an opportunity to work on a project for a couple of days, and it’s requested to issue a freelancer invoice. Just like any service provider, you have agreed on a project and you’re offering your products or services to a company. But it’s your responsibility to know the best practices for invoicing as a freelancer.
Freelancers offer products and services to a company and they can invoice them. But there are some things you should consider before invoicing. Here are some things you need to know.
You probably aren’t sure if your invoice is legal. In most cases, you should be fine, except for some instances like:
- Your invoice has a higher rate than contracted
- Contains false charges (fees)
- Is a request for funds designed to look like an invoice
So you can create an invoice but it should be accurate. Your invoice should contain a detailed list of the services or products provided and the fees charged with a description.
To make your invoice enforceable you should have an agreement with your client. It’s best to have your agreement written in a contract. Also, you must include all information requested by the other party.
It’s not required for you to submit an invoice for each purchase. Instead, you can bill upon completion of an entire project, monthly, or at other intervals.
What should a Freelancer invoice include?
If you want to invoice a company as an individual, make sure you incorporate your name on all your invoices. Also, you have to make sure that your invoice includes:
- Your client’s name and address

- Your name and business address
- Date of the invoice sent
