What is an Invoice?

An invoice is a document that outlines the products and services that a business provides to a client and indicates that the client must pay for those goods and services. This document is sent to the client by the business. Invoices serve as the primary documentation in the bookkeeping process of a small firm. An invoice lists the services performed together with the total amount the customer is responsible for paying and the due date for the payment.

Because invoices are the business records that enable enterprises to get paid for their services, small businesses need a system for creating and sending out invoices. An invoice is “a list of items sent or services provided, with a description of the sum owed for these; a bill.” 

What is a Collection?

When a consumer owes money to a company, the company will use the term “collections” to collect that money from the customer. When a client fails to pay a company within the allotted time frame, the payment amount is considered past due, and the company may occasionally turn the account over to a collection agency.

When a company sells a good or service to a client, the client is obligated to make payment immediately following the completion of the transaction or within a predetermined amount of time, such as thirty days. Unfortunately, some clients do not pay the company within the time frame that has been agreed upon, and whenever this occurs, the account is regarded to be in collections.

What is a Bill?

A bill is a statement of charges that outlines the total amount a client is responsible for paying for products or services they have received. A bill’s primary function is to provide the buyer and seller with legally admissible evidence that a sales transaction occurred. Most cases, bills are utilized for one-time, up-front payments such as those in retail purchases. Billing is a mechanism to obtain prompt payment from a customer instead of an invoice.

What Are the Difference Between Invoicing, Collections, and Billing?

Invoicing is formally requesting payment for delivered goods or rendered services. A bill is a formal request for payment before delivery of the items or completion of the service. Collections are payments that have been collected.

In most cases, invoices are sent out after the goods or services have been given, while bills are sent out before they are rendered. Once an invoice has been issued and paid, collections can begin.

It is possible to send invoices and bills monthly, quarterly, or yearly. Payments might be collected monthly, quarterly, or yearly, among other schedules.

The most significant distinction between an invoice and a bill is the timing of their issuance; invoices are typically issued after services have been rendered, while bills are typically issued before they are rendered. Billing is the process of issuing a request for payment before goods or services have been delivered, whereas collections refers to the actual receipt of those payments.
