Professional invoice templates

Download our free, professional invoice templates to help you get paid faster.

Getting paid on time is vital for small businesses, especially in the first few years and even more so when you rely on a small number of large customers.

Use our professional, VAT-compliant invoice templates to make sure you make a good impression, clearly communicate your payment terms and – most importantly – get paid on time.

The templates are simple, easy-to-use Word documents in three styles ranging from plain and simple to a more enhanced design. Just download the invoice templates, choose your favourite design, add your company, customer and order details plus any special instructions and you’re good to go.


Not sure if you need to use VAT invoice templates?

Our set of templates include versions for businesses that charge VAT and ones for those that don’t.

If your business turnover is more than £85,000 over a 12-month period, you will need to register for VAT. Once you’re registered, you must charge the applicable tax rate on any products or services you sell.

If you’re VAT-registered just use the VAT versions of the templates and you’ll have the peace of mind that your invoices are HMRC-compliant.

What’s included on the invoice templates?

The templates include a clear, easy-to-use layout and fully customisable areas for:

  • Your business name and address
  • Your business logo
  • Invoice number
  • Invoice date
  • Payment due date
  • Customer name, address and delivery address
  • Description of goods or services
  • The quantity of goods or number of hours of services provided
  • The price per unit or hour
  • Any discount to be applied

The VAT versions of the templates include all the above fields plus these additional elements:
