What is an Invoice?

An invoice is a document sent out by a business or supplier asking for payment for goods or services. Invoices detail what has been provided, how much is due and the date by which payment should be received.

Most businesses send out invoices to customers for the goods or services they provide. Invoices should include details such as the trading address, contact details, a unique invoice number, a description of the goods or services provided, the total price of the invoice and the date by which it should be paid.

Invoices should also tell the customer how payment can be made, including bank transfer information if applicable.

Businesses that are VAT-registered also need to add VAT to their invoices. If both the buyer and seller are VAT-registered the seller must use a VAT invoice, which includes more detail than non-VAT invoices.
