When a buyer asks for a quotation the seller should always provide a pro-forma invoice. A pro-forma invoice is an invoice sent in advance of the commercial invoice, which is the final bill that the buyer agrees to pay. Some of the advantages of pro-forma invoice to the importer include to show to his government for foreign currency allocation, opening letters of credit and most importantly, to have a detailed information on the transaction that can help him plan. An accurate and professionally submitted pro forma-invoice can help buyers to make a decision and agree to the quotation.
After the purchasing company receives full payment for the invoice, you’ll receive the remaining value minus a ’factoring’ fee. This fee is based on a number of factors, including your customer’s credit worthiness, the average terms, and the invoice number and size. However, generally, the invoice factoring fee is up to five percent of the invoice value.
Furthermore, the document includes an electronic signature, which is generated using a digital certificate that has been provided to the sender of the invoice by a Tax Agency-approved certificate company. This combination of factors provides a Electronic Invoice with sufficient reliability so as to indisputably guarantee its integrity and the authenticity of its origin.
Invoices are just part of the picture that mirrors the company’s image and business standing. A successful business will have a good template that has all the details. The important details are of the company, the buyer and the shipment. There should be the logo and contact details of the company on the very top of an invoice. This should be followed by details of the buyer and the destination of the shipment. The details of the shipment should clearly outline what it consists of, the quantities as well as the unit cost of each item. This should be followed by the cost of the purchase, other costs, any tax that has been included and lastly the total cost of the shipment.
Most people spend hours on their website design, business cards and resumes but then use a template for their invoice. The invoice is your last contact with your client, and it should share the attention to detail, branding and style of your other elements. By creating a beautiful, clear invoice, you are saying that you care about the little details.
Electronic invoices contain all of the information required in a traditional, paper invoice in an encrypted format, including data on the sender and recipient, such as their name and Tax ID number, the date of the invoice, the sender’s legal address, the amount of the invoice and the percentage and amount of VAT, among other information.
