How to create an invoice: A step-by-step guide with QuickBooks invoice generator 

Learn how to create a customised professional invoice with our easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to your business's specific needs. Discover the wide range of customisable settings available in the right-hand invoice settings panel.

Here is a step-by-step guide to how to create an invoice:

  1. Enter the information for your invoice including the invoice number, invoice date, and invoice due date. If needed, you can add more fields, and notes in this section.
  2. Add your business name (or your name if you are a freelancer), your email address, contact number, and address into the “Billed By” section. 
  3. Fill out the “Billed To” section with the information of the business or client you are sending the invoice to. 
  4. Add each product or service as a line item, along with a description, quantity, and rate. You can also directly write down the amount if you did not want to add quantity or rate and remove those two items from the invoice settings panel on the right. 
  5. If you are invoicing for multiple goods or services, you can add a new invoice item below the one you created in step 4.
  6. If applicable, you can add the sales tax amount and shipping costs on the invoice settings panel. Alternatively, you can remove these items, so they don’t show on your invoice.
  7. Then, to write instructions, payment terms, or any other relevant information, click on the add notes button.
  8. Add your signature or create a space for your client to sign the invoice if relevant. 
  9. Customise your invoice by adding your business logo, changing the theme’s colour and fonts, or you could even add a header and a couple of banners at the bottom to show your business’s most recent updates or promotions. Adding banners or a header is optional, but we wanted to make sure you have the option to create the best invoice online that suits your needs. 

Finally, you can preview or directly download your PDF invoice ready for you to send to your client.

How to send an invoice

After creating your first invoice using our invoice generator, it's time to learn how to send it to your client. 

The first step is to compose an email to your client and then attach the PDF version of the invoice. This approach enables your client to easily access and review the invoice by opening the invoice as an attachment.

For a more advanced solution, you can create invoices on QuickBooks Online. Invoices on QuickBooks Online allows you to keep track of invoices sent by letting you check the status of the invoice after it has been sent. If you send the invoice directly from QuickBooks, you can even add a pay now button making it easier for clients to pay you. With these simple steps, sending invoices has never been easier.

What to put on an invoice

Header

A document's purpose should be clearly stated in its header. On the QuickBooks invoice generator, you can add the invoice number, date, and due date. Adding a header to these documents helps you and your clients differentiate them quickly, which can save time when reviewing records or preparing taxes. 

Logo

Additionally, you can enhance the professional appearance of your invoices by adding your company logo in the designated "Add Business Logo" section. If you don't have a logo, leaving this section blank is acceptable if the rest of the invoice is properly formatted.

Business Name

We recommend including your business's name and contact details, such as an address, phone number, and email, when creating an invoice. This information can be added under the ‘Billed By’ section of the invoice generator.

Details of Client

Be sure to include the client's name and contact information, including their address, phone number, and email address. This can be added in the ‘Billed To’ section of the invoice generator. 

Invoice Number

An invoice number is a distinct identifier assigned to each invoice. It aids in organising multiple invoices and can be formatted in many ways such as file numbers (000001), unique billing codes, or date-based purchase order numbers. If you wish to use your own custom format for your invoice number, you can update each invoice number yourself each time you use the invoice generator.

The full version of QuickBooks invoicing software can automatically manage your invoice number, the software will create a unique invoice number for each document. 

Invoice Date

Including the invoice date on each invoice is crucial as it avoids confusion when a customer receives multiple invoices. This is particularly important as payment is generally expected within a specific number of days after receiving an invoice, and the date on the invoice indicates the due date for payment.

Description of Product or Services

In the product section, you should list each good or service provided to a client separately. Include the name of the good or service provided, the unit price and the quantity of the product.
