Invoice Template FAQs
Who should use an invoice template?
If you work on a freelance or contract basis, you probably need to send invoices in order to get paid. Our simple templates are designed to be flexible, allowing you to customise them according to your line of work—whether you’re a construction worker, a graphic designer or a freelance wedding photographer!
Which invoice template should I use?
Invoice Template in Word
Microsoft Word is used for general documents such as letters or reports. If you typically work in Microsoft’s Office Suite, this could be a good invoice template for you to download.
With our Microsoft Word template, your document is all set up for you so you won’t need to fiddle around with adding line items and totals and making sure that the margins look professional.
Simply add in the specifics of your invoice, save the document as a PDF and email it to your client.
Invoice Template in Google Docs
If you prefer to work in Google Docs, you can use our Google Doc invoice template. Open up our Google Doc and make your own copy, which you can save in your Google Drive.
The benefit of using Docs is that you can easily save all of your invoices into Google Drive after you create them to keep track of all of your invoices there. You can duplicate the document and make changes to create a new invoice the next month.
Turn it into a PDF and attach it to an email to send it to your client.
Invoice Template in Excel
Using Excel for your invoices can be slightly easier due to its ability to add formulas. You can add in each line item, and the Excel formulas will automatically add up your totals and add your taxes or subtract discounts if you need to include those.
When you want to print the invoice, remember to choose ‘Fit to Page’ in your print settings.
Invoice Template in Google Sheets
If you prefer to use Google’s suite, you can use a Google Sheets template in a similar way to using an Excel template. Open up our template and make your own copy. Add in your specifics, use the formulas to add up the totals, download a PDF copy and send it to your client.
Invoice Template in PDF
If you just want to take a look at a good invoice, a PDF version could work for you. It’ll show you the exact style of the invoice without any formatting differences.
What are the benefits of using an invoice template?
Using a simple invoice template helps you to maintain a professional image and consistent brand. This makes a good impression on your clients, who are then more likely to become repeat customers.
Not only this, but using our basic invoice template as a starting point will save you time—and as we all know, time is money!
For enhanced time-saving and business efficiency, consider using invoicing software instead of a template.
What are the benefits of using invoice software instead of a template?
If you offer one-off services which are not your main source of income, a simple template in Word, Google Docs, Excel, Google Sheets, or PDF might suit you. However, if you are a freelance or trade professional who relies on efficient invoicing to conduct your business, you may find that invoicing software is a smart choice.
The benefits of using invoice software include:
- Send invoices in one click
- Receive alerts when payment is due or payment is made
- Allow clients to pay directly from your invoice
- Automatically create invoices based on your projects and contracts
- Set up recurring invoices
- Sync with time tracking to send invoices with hours included

What’s included in these invoice templates?
The specific information you need to include depends on the type of work you’re doing. However, the invoice template provides space for all the information necessary to be paid promptly. This includes:
- your name, address, and phone number,
- the current date,
- the date by which you expect to be paid,
- your preferred payment method,
- a description of the work you did,
- and individual and total costs (including sales tax, if necessary).
When should I submit an invoice?
This will depend on the agreement you have with your client. However, the most common times to send invoices are as soon as the work has been completed, or at the end of each month.
What happens after I submit an invoice?
After you send an invoice to a client, you should receive your payment by the specified date. If you do not receive your payment in time, check in with the client to confirm that the invoice was received. Keep in mind the payment method you specified, and make sure you are looking in the right place for the payment.
