Here are important components that should be featured on all invoices.
The word “TAX INVOICE” should be in large letters, across the top of the document.
- Payer or Customer name and address
The company or individual customer who will be making the payment should be listed, along with their mailing address.
- Payee or Supplier name and address
The name of the person or company being paid (that’s you!) should be listed, along with your mailing address. Your email address may also suffice in place of a mailing address.
- VAT Registration Number
The supplier's VAT registration. Register for VAT in UAE.
- VAT (Value Added Tax)
If you charge VAT (introduced in Jan 2018 at a rate of 5%), you must issue a tax invoice that clearly states the amount of VAT it includes eg: 5% VAT. If you’re not charging VAT, you’ll need to issue an invoice that clearly states “0% VAT”. See more information about VAT in UAE or watch this module.
- Itemised list of goods or services
Description of the work that was done should be listed. For example, if the invoice is for a product or service, list the the product or service name, quantity, per-unit price and total price. If it is an hourly rate, add the number of hours worked.
- Invoice number or Identifying number
An invoice number helps keep invoices organised. Create an invoice number that goes up incrementally each time a new one is sent.
- Issue date
It’s important to include the date the invoice was issued, as well as the date(s) of the work completed or when the products were ordered or delivered. Your customer may need this tax invoice as a supporting document to claim input tax on their standard-rated purchases.
- Payment terms
You should always state the date when payment is due. Most invoices have a 14-day term, meaning they must be paid within 14 days to avoid late fees or penalties. You can establish your own payment terms (from payment on delivery to 30 or 60 days), depending on your type of business and your customers.
