Invoices can sometimes be an Accounts Payable (AP) clerk’s worst nightmare, especially if it takes hours and hours to manually process a single paper based invoice. Numerous things could go wrong with processing invoices manually; which can become very costly for business. Below we have listed five of the top invoice problems.
Just about any company that generates commercial invoices can take advantage of invoice factoring. But is invoice factoring right for your business? It could be if your business is struggling to make ends meet because of long billing cycles, you’re wasting time collecting down payments from slow paying clients, you’re unable to take advantage of business opportunities due to lack of funds, or your business isn’t financially strong enough to obtain traditional bank financing.
One such site is the Microsoft site. The site offers businesses different templates for all the forms and documents needed to keep a company running. It is also the best place to find an invoice example, which will look perfect and above all official and professional.
Include Your Terms – must be clear When do you expect the client to pay you? What happens if they miss the deadline? To be able to send follow-up or overdue notices or to charge interest, you need a rock-solid paper trail that no one can argue with.
Itemized List of Services – must be specific People want to know what they’ve paid for. Most people will not pay for something described merely as ”Design.” Tell them exactly what they have received: e.g. ”Design of three-page static website for Sporting Goods Department.” Be as specific as possible. In five years, would both you and the client know what you meant by your description? Also, specify whether the charge is project-based or hourly.
Electronic invoices encourage organizations to discontinue the use of paper invoices, replacing them with a digital version of an electronically-generated tax document, which has the same legal validity as the traditional version and preserves a faithful record of all commercial transactions. In this way, the entire billing process can be administered electronically. However, it is important to remember that amount of Value Added Tax must be included on every Invoice.
