When to issue an invoice?

Regarding the timing of issuing invoices, invoices are documents that need to be issued in response to invoices that accompany the provision of services and goods. Therefore, it is not realistic to issue an invoice earlier than the delivery, such as when an order is placed.

 

The invoice will be issued at the same time as the delivery or after the delivery. In general, we often use a method called the “every time method” in which a transaction occurs, and a bill is charged each time the product is delivered. Adopting this method has the advantage of improving the cash flow of the company.

 

Besides, if billing is done many times a month or regular transactions every month, we may adopt a “payment method” in which billing is billed in a lump sum. Make sure to consider the relationship with your business partners and your company’s cash flow.
