Proforma invoices basically contain much of the same information as the formal quotation and in many cases can be used in place of one. It should give the buyer as much information about the order as possible so arrangements can be made efficiently. The invoices inform the buyer and the appropriate import government authorities details of the future shipment; changes should not be made without the buyers consent.

Invoices are just part of the picture that mirrors the companys 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.

Paper invoices entering the AP department are now scanned into the IMS (Invoice Management Solution) system. Using Automated Data Capture technologies the header information such as invoice total supplier name etc is automatically read from the invoice. The integration between IMS and the ERP then enables this data to be populated directly to register the invoice in the financial system with minimal manual data entry required. If IMS does not recognise the vendor workflow automatically sends this as a query to the business user who can then select whether this is a new vendor to be set up in the ERP or is just a one-off vendor. The integration between IMS and the ERP triggers the creation of the appropriate vendor. This ensures that delays are not created with unknown vendors and speeds up the process of adding new vendors to the finance system.

Numbers and Numbers and Records and Books - must be trackable Referring to "invoice #9048" rather than "That invoice I sent you last month I think on a Tuesday" is much easier to track for both you and your client. Assign numbers to your invoices systematically consistently and chronologically. Some people number their invoices by year (for example 2009043 would be the 43rd invoice of 2009). You could also specify a code for the project. For example ABC06 would be the 6th invoice for the ABC project that youre currently working on. Having an invoice and project numbering system keeps everything in line.

Their Details and Yours - must be complete This is basic stuff but you cant afford to forget it. In addition to the clients address make sure to include the name of the clients contact person who handles your account! A company with three employees can figure out what youre doing; but in big companies invoices get misplaced especially if theres confusion over who belongs to which project.

Thank Them and Ask Them to Thank You - must be sincere Money is often a touchy subject so politeness about it is a good idea. Your clients are paying you money that theyve earned with blood sweat and tears so let them know you appreciate it. You should also invite them to contact you if they have any questions and more importantly make it clear that you appreciate their present (and future) business.

Missing or Incorrect Line Data Incorrect or missing line data can include incorrect numbers or the wrong price on the invoice. This can cause a lot of problems for the AP team as they would need to solve this discrepancy before the invoice gets paid. Correcting the problem on these invoices manually will be very time consuming for AP staff as they will need to find out where the mistake is and what the correct data should be.

Itemized List of Services - must be specific People want to know what theyve 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.
