    Hello.

    Maybe a silly question, but what should a sole trader invoice look like?

    I’m not registered for GST, so that means there’ll be nothing in the “tax” field. Is it still called a Tax Invoice?

    Besides the obvious stuff like payment terms (e.g. “Payment in 7 days”)… services being charged for… amount… name and address of client … business name and address of seller … etc … what else needs to be on it?

    ABN?

    What else?

    Thank you in advance.

    PS. I’m using Wave accounting and PayPal (so far) … have just set it up, very little experience with it so far

    If you’re not registered for GST then you just put Invoice, not tax invoice.

    Make sure that services being charged for are clear and accurate.

    Not undermining integrity of sole traders or anything but I just had bad experience with 500$ invoice for fixing a sprinkler leak. When I checked invoice, I was charged for 30 min waiting time when the guy actually turned up earlier than scheduled. That was the only thing clear on the invoice. Actual work done description was fluffy. Needless to say, he is not coming back as I still can’t understand what he did or charged for
