When Should You Send Your Small Business Invoice to Your Clients?
There are different methods for how to send an invoice. If you provide short-term, small-scale services, it’s customary to send an invoice at the end of the project directing the client that payment is due upon receipt.
If your projects are larger in scope, breaking them into scheduled invoices is a common practice. Depending on the scope of a project, you can also invoice for a deposit upon the signing of the contract and break down remaining payments into monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly payments.
Using online invoices or invoicing software will make creating and sending your invoices easier and more efficient. With QuickBooks you will get access to features that will allow you to:
- Customize your invoice (choosing brand colours, currency type, and language preferences)
- Set up automated scheduled invoices
- Automated sales taxes calculations
