Invoice templates provide a basic solution for quick invoice creation but lack advanced features compared to free invoicing software. Invoice template is a great solution when you only need to create one or two invoices. Invoicing software, on the other hand, offers a more comprehensive solution, making it a better choice for businesses seeking a more sophisticated solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between online invoice generators and the contractor templates?

Online invoice generators allow you to create and send invoices online. Templates, on the other hand, have to be edited in a word processing software or spreadsheet software. In addition, templates entail more manual work than invoicing software, as one have to send the invoices manually and follow up payments in a manual fashion. Therefore, online software can be a better alternative for most contractors – especially when there are free options available (such as Conta).

How detailed of a description of work, materials, and labour should my invoice include?

The work, supplies, and labour that you gave to your client should all be clearly and completely described in your invoice. This makes sure there are no ambiguities regarding the services provided and their costs. Please also remember to use the quantity field, so that you have a clear record of the number of hours you have worked and the items you have used.
