To getting paid on time for your freelance writing / designing / editing / journalist / website developing / consulting / video production / translation work the best way is to send an invoice, by traditional postal mail or electronical email, in either PDF format, Excel spreadsheet (xlsx / xls) format, or even image format.
We've already published an invoice format for freelancers, at Freelance Invoice Template; and for a list of invoicing forms that could be used by freelancers like designers, developers etc., visit Freelance Invoice Template For Service Business, Graphic Design Freelance Invoice Template, Freelance Web Design Invoice Template, etc. Unlike Freelance Invoice Template, where the calculation of line totals are done by multiply "Hours * Hourly Rate", in this billing template sample Freelance Writer Invoice Template, the amount of each line is manually fillable - this means that it is more suitable for project or contract - based billing. You can find more invoice samples for hourly-rate based invoicing under the Service Invoice Template and Consulting Invoice Template.
All invoice templates here on InvoicingTemplate.com are in Excel spreadsheet format (xlsx or xls). While Microsoft Word can also be used to procedure beautiful and professional invoices in docx or doc format, the benefits of Excel is clear - it is more suitable for doing calculations. For example, in this template the line totals, subtotal, tax and total are all computed automatically using Excel formulas.
When creating an invoice, be sure to include your contact information. Put your name, address, phone number, email address, and even your website at the top of the invoice. If you are USA-based charge over $600 over the course of the year, you'll probably need to give your client your business's Federal Tax ID number (so they can send you a 1099-MISC, see Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income - IRS.gov, or Form 1099-MISC - Wikipedia).
Another important invoicing tips for freelancer writers or designers is tracking invoices and payments. While the pure Excel-formatted template does produce beautiful and professional invoices, it is not easy when it comes to number and tracking invoices / payments. With pure Excel spreadsheet template, you have to number invoices manually and track payments manually. And as a freelancer, you may not want to use those expensive and complex accounting / bookkeeping software systems. This is no longer a problem if you have Invoice Manager for Excel installed, which is our Excel-based desktop invoicing software app that connect an Excel spreadsheet template with back end database, offers advanced features like management of customers, products, invoices and payments. Feel free to download the fully functional trail version and see how it works for you. The invoicing app is also able to generate PDF copy of your freelance invoice and send it to your customer electronically.
