Competition amongst tradesmen is tough these days.

And you have to be more savvy now than ever to create a good reputation for your company. So here are our top 5 tips to create a more professional looking tradesman’s invoice that will help you build a good reputation, and turn your company into a well oiled machine!

1. Presentation

Gone are the days where a hand written invoice is the norm. customers appreciate a well presented piece of paperwork, and it gives a great impression of your company (along with the good work of course). You can easily set up a template in Word to help you save a bit of time doing this, or of course signing up to YourTradeBase for a 14 day free trial!

2. Logo

It doesn’t have to be fancy, but you’d be surprised at how much of an impression this makes on your customers.

3. A company email address

They’re easy to set up, it gives one contact point for your customers to email, and you look professional – all from a free email account!

4. Due date of payment

It shows you mean business, and you run your company like one too. So make sure you clearly set out a proper payment schedule to each and every one of your customers (even if it’s a standard one you blanket use for all of them).

5. Your payment details.

Not only does this speed up the process of payment for you, but again gives the impression of a well oiled machine that is your business.
