Why event planners should send professional invoices

Illustration of invoice being sent

As an event planner you are proud of your great organizational skills, as well as your ability to manage the tiny details while still being able to focus on the big picture. No event is ever the same, so no off-the-shelf invoice will do.

You need an invoice that is flexible enough to capture all the special requirements for each event, while still being clear and easy-to-understand for your customers.

You always deliver first class results, so your invoice should be as polished and professional as the great event planning services you provide. A good-looking, well-organized invoice will also add to your outstanding reputation.

How to fill out your event planner 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 event planning customers?

Some event planners invoice at the end of an event, especially if it is a smaller event. But if it is a large event requiring a lot of preparation and planning, as well as hiring specialty staff and bringing in supplies, many event planners ask for a percentage of the cost up front, with the remainder when the event is finished.

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