Invoicing and taking payment from customers

If you sell a customer a product or a service, you need to give them an invoice (bill) by law if both you and the customer are registered for VAT (a business to business transaction). An invoice is not the same as a receipt, which is an acknowledgement of payment.

Visit GOV.UK for information on:

  • what an invoice should include
  • types of invoice
  • payments and obligations
