Next to the logo is your company or business information, including your company name, your name, address, telephone number and email address or web site address. If you client have any questions about the charges, contacting you should be as easy as possible. On the top-right section there is two required fields, the invoice# and invoicing date. If Invoice Manager for Excel - our invoicing software that is able to turn a simple Excel invoice template into a complete invoicing program, is installed, clicking on the "Clear & New" button will fill in the invoicing date automatically (as long as other usual fields such as sales person etc.), and an invoice# is generated automatically when you click "Save To DB". On the client section, you can detail the client's address. Make sure to include the name of the client's contact person who handles your account! A company with three employees can figure out what you're doing; but in big companies, invoices get misplaced, especially if there's confusion over who belongs to which project. So always fill in all the required information as detailed as possible.

The Item# field / column, which is placed out side of the printable freelance invoice form, is useful especially for Invoice Manager for Excel users. Entering a short code, such as "s01" or "s02" into the item# cells, the saved descriptions and rate / unit price will be retrieved and filled into the form, so that you don't have type the same text again and again.
