Create a professional invoice for the cakes you make with this customizable template. Simply fill out the invoice with your information, download the invoice in the format that works best for you (.doc, .xls, or .pdf), and send it off.
In order to be paid promptly, you must include certain pieces of information in your invoice. These pieces of information are:
• The name, address, and phone number of the company or individual you are invoicing
• Your name, address, and phone number (or that of your small business)
• The current date
• The date by which you expect to be paid
• Your preferred method of payment (confirm with the client that this method works for them)
• A description of the work you performed. This does not to be detailed, but should make it clear what you’re referring to (for instance, “wedding cake,” “birthday cake,” “cake decoration,” etc.).
• The cost of each piece of work on the invoice. This may be a flat fee or an hourly rate. If it is hourly, also include the number of hours and multiply to get your total.
• The grand total, including sales tax if necessary
After you submit your invoice, you should receive your payment by the date you specified on your invoice. If you do not receive your payment by this time, check with the company to confirm that the invoice for your bakery work was received. Keep in mind the method of payment you specified, so that you make sure you are looking in the right place for the payment.
You should check with the client to confirm when they prefer to receive their invoice, but it will likely either be the end of the month or as soon as you complete and deliver your cake or cakes.
