In this podcast, we cover how to create a PDF invoice, and the advantages of doing so. Key points made are:
Many accounting software packages automatically create PDF invoices. If not, buy Adobe’s Acrobat software to do so.
Can then send PDF invoices as email attachments, which avoids any mailing delay and so shortens the collection period.
Always create a PDF first in your accounting software; otherwise, the system may insist on printing “duplicate” on any subsequent printings of the same invoice, which will then appear on the PDF. You can always print from the initial PDF to get a paper version of an invoice that does not contain the word “duplicate” on it.
