Invoice example With GST & PST An invoice not only shows the customer or client how much money is due but provides tax information, in some countries multiple taxes may apply, for example in Canada it is required to put the Supplier's identification numbers for GST and QST taxes purposes. Whenever a taxable sale is made, the customer must be informed that GST and QST are added to the selling price. As there are no standard invoices required by law for this purpose, you must indicate the amount of the taxes on the cash register receipt; on the invoice or contract remitted to the customer. If you choose to indicate the GST and the QST, the amounts must be stated clearly.The European Union requires a VAT (value added tax) identification number on invoices between entities registered for VAT.
How you present your bills for payment to your clients may not seem as important as, for instance, the quality of your services or the products offered _ but actually it is. Are you still using the traditional invoicing? Your clients won't be too enthusiastic when forced to put aside a good portion of their valuable time in order to sort through your paper invoices, file them and maintain payment timelines. You, on the other hand, will have to put up with the hassle of managing all that paper: can you really afford to lose so much of your time on paperwork, when it's better spent working on other aspects of your business?
