Invoice Form Fields Explained:
- Vat: Vat is calculated based on the vat percentage you provide. If you dont charge VAT, leave the field blank and set it as zero.
- Payment Reference: An invoice is an official request for payment, as such you will need a payment reference that identifies which invoice has been paid, for this you use the payment reference field. In most cases a payment reference is either a unique invoice number or a client code. By default this invoice template uses the invoice number as the payment reference but you can change it to anything you like.
- Currency symbol: A currency symbol can be choosen or you can enter your own. You can also choose to use a currency code or abbreviation. Currency codes will be added before the price.
- Banking Details: Most companies request payment into a bank account, for this we have allocated a section soley for banking details. If you use a different form of payment you can hide the banking option and use the notes section to instruct your clients accordingly.
- Due by date: Its common practice for invoices to have a due by date. You want to give your client a reasonable deadline to settle the account, you can use the due by date option to indicate this. If you prefer to word it differently then hide this option and use the note field to enter you own terms and conditions.
- Notes: Because each business/company has their own rules and t's & c's, we've allocated the note field for you to add whatever information this invoice template might fall short of. Common usage for note field is for businesses to enter their terms and conditions, payment methods, delivery procedures etc.
