Why electricians should send professional invoices

Illustration of invoice being sent

You’re a master at complex electrical work, and you know no two jobs are ever the same. That’s why you need a flexible invoice that can clearly detail all the labor required, as well as all the materials and special services you need to charge for. Electrical wiring is a mystery to most people, so your invoice also needs to be easy-to-understand so your customers know exactly what they are paying for.

Besides technical know-how, you also supply great customer service. Make sure your invoice looks as polished and professional as the work you provide, and adds to your professional reputation.

How to fill out your electrical work invoice

Once you've downloaded your free invoice template, you'll need to customize it to fit your specific business. Here are the 10 key things to include on your invoice:

  1. Title and Description: Name the project and briefly describe what type of work your client is being invoiced for.
  2. Company Details: Add your company name, address, phone number, and logo to the top-right corner.
  3. Customer Details: Under "Bill To", add your customer's name, address, and contact information.
  4. Invoice Number: Include a unique invoice number to help you track down this invoice in the future. You can format this based on sequence and customer. For example, if you're sending your very first customer their first invoice,  the invoice number could be 001-001.
  5. Dates: Include the date when your invoice has been issued and the date when payment is due.
  6. Line Item: Add individual line items for each unique good or service you provided. For each line item, include a brief description, quantity, individual unit price, and total price.
  7. Subtotal: Add up the subtotal of your goods or services, before tax has been applied.
  8. Tax: Indicate the tax rate applied to the subtotal. This is legally required to provide on invoices, and your rate may differ depending on where you run your business.
  9. Total: Outline the total amount due from the customer, after tax.
  10. Notes: Include any additional info your customer should know, including terms of service and payment terms (for example, payments are due 30 days after the invoice has been issued).

When is the right time to send an invoice to your electrical work customers?

As a professional electrician, you work on a variety of projects for both your residential and corporate customers, so the right time to send an invoice depends on the size of the job and your relationship with the customer.

For small jobs, most electricians invoice upon completion, but if it’s a big job requiring special electrical parts and materials, as well as many hours, or days, of labor, many electricians ask for a percentage or half of the cost up front, with the remainder when the job is finished.

Whatever payment cadence you choose, make sure it’s clearly noted on each invoice, and clarify what portion of the final ‘cost’ has been paid to date.
