Are you struggling to sort your invoice creation
confusion? In a nutshell, you need not have a
limited company to create invoices. There are
several businesses across the country that
operate as a sole proprietor. You can legally
issue an invoice in the name of your client. But
it is unlike the GST tax invoices. A GST invoice
is a detailed document issued under section 31 of
the CGST Act, 2017. A GST tax invoice contains
mandatory contents. It includes GSTIN of both
supplier and buyer, addresses, taxable amount,
etc. Only taxable goods and services registered
under the government can issue the GST invoices.
It allows you and the recipients to claim ITC
(Input Tax Credit). However, for safe and secure
functioning of the business. It is always
recommended to register your business. Whether
you want to have a limited company or not, this
article will address all your confusion
concerning creating invoices.

How Can I Invoice Without A Registered Company
  • Can I invoice without being self-employed? It
    is the most commonly asked questions by
    freelancers who do not want to declare themselves
    as self-employed. Being a freelancer or a sole
    proprietor does not require you to take formal
    actions.
  • Only businesses with specific thresholds are
    mandated to create invoices under GST. Otherwise,
    you can always send invoices to your clients as
    per their request. However, there are specific
    key considerations that you must include in your
    professional invoices.

What Should My Invoice Include?
  • Integrity is a choice between whats convenient
    and whats right. Professionalism is vital for
    small businesses to succeed in the near future.
    It is why most freelancers and sole proprietors
    prefer online invoicing.
  • Invoicing your clients is easier with online
    invoicing templates on the invoice generator.
    Here are a few key considerations that you must
    document in your invoices.

5
Professional Header
  • Your invoice must primarily consist of your full
    name or business name. Ensure the visibility of
    the name. Use a bigger size and formal font.
  • Include your contact details like mailing
    address, contact number, email address, and
    website link (if any). You can also add a
    personal logo to make your invoice look more
    professional.

6
Contact Information of the Client
  • The next vital consideration of a formal invoice
    is the clients contact information. Below the
    header, specify the details of the recipient.
    Include your clients name, address, contact
    number, and other additional information.
  • Note that your contact information must be placed
    opposite to your clients contact details. Place
    your logo on the top-right and set your clients
    details on the left corner, below the header.

7
Invoice Details
  • Next up is invoice details. Mention the invoice
    information such as invoice number, invoicing
    date, and payment due date. Setting up a
    sequential invoice number helps your track all
    your transactions.
  • Specify payment terms in your invoice, specify
    your bank account details or payment options. If
    you want to get paid faster, mention the penalty
    fee for late payments. It may prompt your client
    to pay you earlier or, at least, on time.

Legalities for Formal Invoicing
  • Most small businesses are concerned about the
    legalities of their formal invoices. Formal
    invoices are considered legal and will stand in
    court when required. However, you may run into
    trouble if your invoice is considered fraudulent.
    For instance
  • When you invoice with a higher amount against the
    contracted price on goods or services.
  • When you include fraudulent charges in your
    invoice, such as fees on services you have not
    provided to your client.
  • An invoice is considered fraudulent in the eye of
    law when you request funds in the form of an
    invoice.
  • In a nutshell, keep your invoice precise and
    accurate. Breakdown the charges and include all
    the necessary key considerations mentioned in the
    article above.
