Sending professional-looking invoices that include specific information is not just a matter of good business practice; it's a matter of law, in the UK at least.
I have to tip my hat to my colleague and fellow proofreader Kate Haigh (Kateproof) for alerting me to the following link from the UK government website: Invoicing and taking payment from customers: the law.
Fortunately, my invoices already include all the information legally required by UK law, but I was glad to have the opportunity to check. Do take a peek at the above link if you're unsure whether your business invoices are compliant.
If you live outside the UK, I'd be glad to include links to invoicing compliance information for other countries. Just drop me a line in the Comments below.
