How to Write in PDF and Word
Step 1 – Under the main ‘Freelance Invoice’ header, either enter the name of your Freelance company or leave it blank to keep the default wording. Then, enter all applicable contact details, ranging from your address to your company website.
Step 2 – For the ‘Bill To’ section, enter your client’s Invoice Number, Name, Address, the Date you will be issuing the invoice, and the client’s Phone Number.
Step 3 – Next, enter the services that were rendered for the customer. Start with a brief Description, then enter the number of Hours per task and the Hourly Rate. In the PDF version, the Amount section will automatically multiply the hour number and rate. Where it says ‘Sales Tax,’ enter the corresponding Sales Tax (in decimal format) for your state. The PDF version will automatically calculate the ‘TOTAL’ field. In the Word version, you will need to add 1 to the sales tax and multiply it by the ‘Total Labor’ cell.
Step 4 – At the bottom of the document, enter any Comments or Instructions you may have for the customer. Things to write include where to send the check, a personal thank-you to the customer, or corrections to any listed expenses. Directly below the comment box, specify the number of Days the client has to pay the invoice in full.
