An invoice is a document which is sent by someone such as a freelancer, to a company, informing them of the services which have been completed, how much the company owes them, and the date by which it should be paid.

Sellers also use invoices, which they will send to buyers, listing the products that have been sold and the money that is due.

Invoices are usually sent by post, though nowadays people tend to use electronic invoices.

An invoice includes the following:

- the name of the person or company who is sending the invoice

- the name of the company that the invoice is being sent to; purchase order

- tax ID number

- billing and shipping addresses

- the date for which the payment is due

- information on the products sold (such as quantity, unit because, tax etc)

- how the item will be shipped and how much it will cost to ship it

- sub-totals and the total amount due

Invoice can be defined as an itemized statement of bill payable for merchandise shipped or services delivered. Invoices are the receipts which can be used to maintain all of the product history and detail that is being sold. It helps both the seller and the customer to remain content with the products and their bills. Different organizations have different invoice formats according to the requirements of their company and products. One company might use a detailed format for billing and some other might use to a sketchy sort of invoices.

It all depends on the preferences and requirements of the organizations. We can not over look the importance of invoices in any system as they are the most influential transactions of the business. They are very helpful in managing one's business from various aspects. Detailed or sketchy sort of invoices are generated according to requirements of a company but if we summarize all of the features of an invoice, we come to know that an invoice will always be having payment details, product name and the date when they have been sold. Invoices must completely be understood and acknowledged by the reseller else he might have some ambiguities and remain fail to satisfy the customer in case of any kind of query by the customer regarding invoice or payment details.

An invoice itemizes the good and services performed so that payment can be rendered. An invoice is used by a very large number of people or businesses who keep track of their own money or who provide services to give money or pay for a product to another person.
