How to Write in PDF and Word
Step 1 – Download the invoice in PDF or WORD. Start off by entering the name of your company at the top of the document. If you are freelancing, either enter the name of the freelancer or leave the field blank. Proceed by entering your Address, Phone, Email, Website name, and Fax, into the area directly below the main header.
Step 2 – Similar to above, enter the client’s Contact Information in the ‘Bill To’ section.
Step 3 – Next, enter the services that have been completed for the client. Start with a brief Description of the work done, then enter the number of Hours for each service followed by the Hourly Rate. In the PDF version, the ‘Amount’ column will populate on its own. However, if using the Word Version, all amounts will need to be calculated by hand; this is done by multiplying the Hourly Rate by the Hours worked for each service.
Step 4 – Enter the TOTAL invoice amount by adding the Sales Tax for your state to the Total Labor. Add any comments or instructions for the client in the footer-area box followed by the number of days until the invoice is due. The Invoice is now ready to be sent to the client.
