Save time and earn more with Invoicer.

Many independent contractors forget to include at least TWO of these important costs in their invoices. 🤔

‍

What happens next? They lose out on money….

‍

Don’t fall into that trap!

‍

Here’s what you need to include to protect yourself and prevent cash flow issues:

‍

✔️ Scope creep. Mention any changes or additional work beyond the original agreement to avoid unpaid work.

‍

✔️  Expenses. Don't forget to include any reimbursable expenses incurred during the project.

‍

✔️ Time spent on communication. Sometimes, hours spent on calls, meetings, messages, or emails can be overlooked.

‍

✔️ Overhead costs. You may want to add a portion of your overhead expenses to make sure your business remains sustainable.

‍

✔️  Late fees. Set clear payment terms and add late payment fees to encourage clients pay on time.
