FAQ

An invoice should include:

  • the names and contact information of both parties involved
  • the invoice number and any other important numbers or codes
  • a description of the work done
  • the quantity of assignments completed
  • the payment terms and timeline
  • the fee for the work.

Invoices do not need to be signed. A formal signature is normally required for contracts drawn up before the work begins, but it’s not necessary to include a signature on your invoices. Exceptions may exist depending on the company, but this is the rule.

Most employers and employees use a template to be sure their invoices look professional. Keep the design simple, clean and minimal so that all of the numbers and details are clear. Use cool colors like black, grey and blue. Stick to classic, readable fonts.
