When is the right time to send an invoice to your clients?

You can give your client a net 30 invoice at the end of the month to charge for the amount of hours you worked that month. You can also send it in for regular monthly services.

Some freelancers ask for payment within 30 days on all their invoices, and if it is for a large job or project, they may ask for a percentage of the cost upfront or to be paid within 30 days.

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.

Don’t be shy about following up

If a payment is not received within 30 days, follow up immediately. Be friendly and polite and your clients should appreciate the reminder. You provide a valuable service and you deserve to be paid each month.

Always include a ‘payment due’ date

Always clearly indicate when you expect payment on your net 30 invoice. To encourage faster payment, you can offer a discount on payment that is received before the 30-day deadline. Even a small percentage off your total bill can be enough incentive for your clients to get their payment in fast.

Keep a record with numbered invoices

Numbered invoices help you keep track of how much money is coming in, which is important for financial planning purposes. Also include a job or client number on your net 30 invoice if you will be sending invoices to the client at regular monthly intervals.

Add a timesheet

Keeping an up-to-date timesheet can help you accurately track your billable hours. Include your timesheet as an attachment to your net 30 invoice so your client can see the amount of work you did that month and need to be paid for.
