1. Invoice is a statement bearing the detail of the goods delivered or service provide to certain bearer of the goods or service.



An invoice or bill is a commercial document issued by a seller to the buyer, indicating the products, quantities, and agreed prices for products or services the seller has provided the buyer. An invoice indicates the buyer must pay the seller, according to the payment terms.

In the rental industry, an invoice must include a specific reference to the duration of the time being billed, so rather than quantity, price and discount the invoicing amount is based on quantity, price, discount and duration. Generally speaking each line of a rental invoice will refer to the actual hours, days, weeks, months etc being billed.

From the point of view of a seller, an invoice is a sales invoice. From the point of view of a buyer, an invoice is a purchase invoice. The document indicates the buyer and seller, but the term invoice indicates money is owed or owing. In English, the context of the term invoice is usually used to clarify its meaning, such as "We sent them an invoice" (they owe us money) or "We received an invoice from them" (we owe them money).

An invoice is a document raised by a supplier on a customer demanding payment against the goods supplied or services rendered. It contains the details of products, quantities and agreed prices for products or services which the supplier has supplied or provided to the buyer. An invoice indicates that, unless paid in advance, payment is due by the buyer to the seller. Invoices are often called bills.
